Haiti Appeal – Update

Dear Fellows and Friends,

The people of Haiti need massive amounts of support. Urgently. Our club decided very early on to donate the available funds collected from their weekly meetings to Shelterbox ( In addition we launched an appeal on this blog, our Twitter account and on our Facebook page. As a result we are pleased to announce that we have collected and sent enough money to the organisation to buy 2 Shelterboxes to be sent to Haiti.

We’d like to thank all those who have donated money so far.  


  If you are interested in knowing more about what a Shelterbox contains and how Shelterbox work then please look at the following video clip.



The appeal continues so if you haven’t already done so please consider contributing to this worthy cause. We call upon members and friends of SIRC to donate whatever amount you can spare: SEK 1.000, SEK 500, SEK 200 – every single crown will go directly to the Shelterbox organisation.

If you are living in Sweden then pay into the SIRC  BankGiro 5596-6592 with the text "Haiti".

If you are living outside of Sweden then here are the details needed to pay into our club’s account from there:

IBAN: SE29 6000 0000 0001 2073 5628


Handelsbanken, Stockholm, Sweden


Please do not hesitate in making a donation as the country needs help now.

Please spread the word around among your friends and work colleagues. Most certainly, many are willing to help but probably don’t know how. This is a good way.
