Ythan Valley Rotary has announced plans for a ShelterBox sleepover in Neil Ross Square, Ellon on Saturday, February 22.

A team of rotary members plan to meet at about 6.30pm at the Square and set up a ShelterBox Tent with a view to sharing the virtues of the tent, how it is used in disasters worldwide and raise enough money to purchase a ShelterBox for use in one of the many emergencies across the world.

Ythan Rotary Club have announced their sleepover later this month.
