Rotarian camps out in Highworth market square for charity
SWTV met up with Terry Williams this morning in Highworth market square - his new home for the next 7 days.
The 62-year-old Swindon North Rotarian is camping out on the podium all week to raise money for Shelterbox, a charity who provide emergency, tented accommodation and supplies for people affected by natural disasters.
"I hope to raise enough money to buy one actual shelterbox," Terry told us, "which includes a tent big enough for a small family, blankets, water filtration equipment, a stove, plus other essential equipment."
"Just one costs about £600 and they're desperately needed all over the world."
Terry plans to live in a Shelterbox tent for the whole week and is being supported by a number of local businesses including Brooks's bakery, Rafus, The Highworth restaurant, Saracens Head pub and Wrag Barn Golf Club.
SWTV will also be providing updates of Terry's fundraising effort throughout next week.
