March 2011 - Shelter Box

Posted on 01-03-2011

Elearn UK & Stonebridge Associated Colleges have recently donated £250 to Simply Wood to help them meet their target of raising enough money to fund 25 Shelter Boxes, 1 for each of the 25 years Simply Wood have been designing and making bespoke kitchens in Devon, Cornwall and the Southwest.

The main focus for fund raising for ShelterBox is a series of Chef Master Classes being run in the new ShelterBox kitchen at Simply Wood. The ShelterBox kitchen is a permanent fully working bespoke Simply Wood kitchen theatre where chefs from all over Devon and Cornwall can come and show off their culinary skills to discerning audiences all to raise money for ShelterBox.

The concept of these evenings is very simple, chefs give their time for free and ask their suppliers to provide the produce, Simply Wood supply the kitchen theatre for free and everyone attending buys a ticket. This means that all of the ticket money from the Simply Wood charity chef evenings goes to ShelterBox and averages out at 1 or 2 Shelter Boxes per event!

Elearn UK & Stonebridge in the Community

Elearn UK & Stonebridge Associated Colleges are proud to announce our "Stonebridge in the Community" charity scheme. As a college we realise we have a social responsibility to those in our community who are less fortunate and thus we have set up "Stonebridge in the Community". It is our aim to donate at least £500 per month to worthwhile causes. This donation is available to any registered charity or community sports club.

If your charity or sports club would like to apply for the funding you simply need to e-mail the college ( and explain why:

1.         Your charity or sports club should receive the donation
2.         What your charity or sports club intends to do with the funds

We will make a decision monthly on which charity or sports club has been allocated the donation each month

Please note: In order to be eligible for the funding your charity or sports club must agree to allow us to publish their proposal on this page, including any relevant photos. The decision of the college is final and no further correspondence will be entered into, however charities or sports clubs are welcome to submit the same proposal in following months, if unsuccessful. The college reserves the right to not make a donation in a month where it is not felt that it would go to a worthy cause, and likewise the college reserves the right to make more than one donation on months where it believes there to be numerous good causes.

    Shelterbox, like Children's Hospice Southwest, is another one of those local to me charities that I feel really proud to know my College of choice is supporting. The speed and dedication with which Shelterbox works never ceases to amaze me and the simplicity of what they do makes them so effective.
