As a company we have supported the work of ShelterBox based in Cornwall for the last few years and purchase one of their remarkable support boxes whenever we can. In response to the recent and dramatic events in Japan we have purchased a box to assist with the immediate support of families who have lost all their posessions and homes due to the tsunami and earthquake. I am sure that like us you cannot imagine the devastation and effects this will have on families and their work, their ability to function and the enormous difficulty in recovering.
