You are here: Shine for ShelterBox

Host a supper


Raise money for people who need light in their lives.

When disasters strike and power lines go down, families are left vulnerable, wrenched away from comfort and light.

ShelterBox provides essential relief to people who have lost everything. Every ShelterBox we send includes solar lights that can brighten lives in the darkest hour.

It’s easy to help. Just request a free Shine for ShelterBox fundraising kit and we’ll post one to you in time to plan your event.

As you dine, you'll be raising money to provide light and emergency shelter for families who need it most. 

You can make it a cosy supper at home with family and friends, or bring your neighbours together in a local venue. We’ve got all kinds of ideas for making your night special. And a list of supperclub and restaurant events happening near to you.

The Shine for ShelterBox kit has everything you need to add a little sparkle and stardust to the occasion, from beautiful recipes to invitations and table settings.

It was lovely to be chatting and relaxing with my neighbours. When I saw that people had actually donated money I was touched. That feeling of satisfaction was great - I’ve actually done something worthwhile.

Help people like William and Annie


shine for shelterbox case study

When monsoon rains brought waist-high floodwaters to William and Annie’s village, their house was destroyed. Their crops and livestock were washed away, and all of their belongings lost.

They were also left without light. William, Annie and their five children live in Malawi, where the sun sets quickly and the nights are very dark. Deadly black mamba snakes can make even a short trip to the latrine a dangerous journey.

We pack a solar light in every ShelterBox. These clever lights are waterproof, inflatable and can last up to 16 hours on one charge. For William and Annie, solar lights are much more than a convenience - they mean safety for their family.
