SIR - I would like to thank the customers of Brian Fords on Saturday who donated more than �1,000 towards our appeal for money for the Rotary supported charity, ShelterBox.

Their generosity has enabled us to send another two boxes to Haiti to help bring shelter to the tens of thousands caught up in the disaster. My thanks also to Joanne and Jim Bell of Yelland who made the arrangements for the collect and stayed in attendance all day.

ShelterBox, one of the first to gain entry to the country with aid, have 250 boxes distributed and have another hundred that should have reached the stricken area and be in use by the time this letter of sincere thanks is printed.

If anyone is interested in joining Rotary I would love to hear from them (01271373447). We meet at the Barnstaple Hotel on Wednesday evenings.
