The Numbers: ShelterBox

The figures behind the charity that provides emergency disaster relief in the form of boxes containing tents and other necessities of survival

£19.9m: The charity's income for the year ending 30 April 2010, compared with £6.5m in the previous year. It said the big increase was largely due to donations received after the Haiti earthquake in 2010

£1.04m: The cost of generating voluntary income. The charity raised £18.9m, giving it a fundraising ratio of 5p in the pound. The previous year's ratio was 9p in the pound

£4.3m: Free reserves at year-end. The charity said current reserves were abnormally high because of the timing of income and expenditure after the Haiti disaster. It expects reserves to fall and be broadly in line with its policy by 30 April

£70k: No employee was paid more than this

25,400: The number of boxes distributed in the year containing emergency equipment such as tents, blankets, mosquito nets and water purification equipment.
