Shack Attack is a unique, fun outdoor event which challenges teams of 4 people to design and build their own make-shift shelter using only whatever scrap or donated materials they can find.

The teams are then challenged to camp out overnight in their shelters.

Betsy Gray from Bannside Presbyterian Church is encouraging everyone to get involved in this unique event. “Taking part in Shack Attack is a great chance for everyone in the community to support Habitat and raise vital funds to change the lives of families trapped in poverty housing,” she said. “The team is looking forward to the challenge of building their own shelter and there’s sure to be some friendly competition to see who can build the best shack.

“I would urge everyone to get three friends together and get involved in Shack Attack.

“It will be a really fun weekend while of course raising vital funds for such a worthwhile cause.”

Shack Attack will take place Saturday May 17 to Sunday May 18 in Wallace Park, Lisburn.

The event is open to everyone (over 16’s) and it’s free to take part. To sign up contact 028 92 635 635 or email [email protected]
