The challenge of fundraising through our more usual channels remains as the pandemic continues. We are grateful for the support of the wider community through the GlobalGiving platform to help us towards our goal. The Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse is continuing to develop initiatives to support this goal.
Homelessness at this time is an even greater catastrophe as it is inevitably compounded by the threat of Covid-19. ShelterBox provides sanctuary for families and even a place to continue with children’s education.
Having a safe space after disaster strikes, be that a result of war, natural disaster or climate change, will be our emphasis as we continue to drive this campaign.

Interim project report for ShelterBox 20@20 Appeal
By Stella Farr - On behalf of The Rotary Club of HITCHIN Tilehouse
22nd March 2021
Setting out to supply 20 ShelterBoxes in this ShelterBox's 20th year, thanks to the wonderful generosity of our donors, the Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse has already supplied six ShelterBoxes since the start of 2021, sufficient to provide safe accommodation, clean water and cooking facilities for over 60 people.
From enough to purchase a complete box, to a smaller sums enabling a family to sleep safely under mosquito nets, our global donors continue to be amazing as we all live through this global pandemic, when the need for safe accommodation has never been more desperate and fundraising exceedingly challenging.
Harnessing the initiatives of ShelterBox, we continue to engage with donors, be it in our local community, the wider Rotary family and welcoming global support as we reach for our target this year.

Herts Young Homeless Project Update
By Bob Harris - On behalf of the Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse
Hi from all of us at the Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse. A huge thank you to all our donors, your generosity has raised a wonderful £3168 in total to support vulnerable teenagers and young people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness.
As many of you are aware this is the first project the Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse has run on the GlobalGiving platform and we are delighted with the Worldwide reach which has been achieved.
We will soon be closing this appeal and opening a new one as we enter the Winter of 2019. It will again be in aid of Herts Young Homeless. Hopefully some of our donors can again find it in their hearts to support us again because, unfortunately, the problem of homelessness has not gone away!
We thank you again as Friends of the Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse and look forward to keeping in touch.
