 lumleyshotforwebVeggie actress Joanna Lumley is rolling up those funny lady sleeves and getting involved! 

Lumley has recently become a patron of ShelterBox – a UK-based disaster relief charity that has helped over 800,000 people in 57 countries recover from disasters such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, wars, and volcanic eruptions. 

About Lumley, ShelterBox Founder and CEO, says:

“I am so pleased that Joanna has agreed to become one of our Patrons and support our work. These are momentous times for ShelterBox. Since 2001 we have provided emergency shelter in the aftermath of 80 disasters in more than 50 countries. We have now set ourselves the goal of helping 500,000 people a year by 2013. I know that her support will help us reach our goal.”
