The Rotary Club of Forres collected money at Tesco in Forres on Saturday (30 March) to raise funds to send ‘ShelterBoxes’ to African countries hit by Cyclone Idai.

A ShelterBox is a self-contained unit containing emergency survival aid, including a tent, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, hand tools, water purification tablets, dried food and bedding.

The Forres cub has raised more than £58,000 in its shelterbox appeal since 2002.
