The international disaster relief charity ShelterBox has secured support from a new charity partner.

It comes as Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), part of Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, announced ShelterBox and Cool Earth as its new charity partners, following an employee vote.

ShelterBox specialises in emergency shelter and helps people all over the world who have lost their homes because of conflict or disaster. Since the charity was founded in 2000, ShelterBox has helped more than two million people across 98 countries.

As part of a three-year commitment, LSM will be supporting each of the global Cornwall-based charities with a corporate donation of £50k per year. LSM will also be holding a variety of engagement activities to further support and promote the charities.

“We are proud to be supporting ShelterBox and Cool Earth as both charities fight for causes close to our hearts,” said Nigel Davenport, group general counsel at Liberty Specialty Markets.

“Supporting these charities enables us to focus on the immediate impact on individuals and communities, while supporting initiatives to combat climate change in the long term.”
