VBA to cycle through values to change colours of various shapes

Hello there,

I have a range of shape names followed by various values which correspond to the colours which I'd like to assign. I'm having problems piecing together the VBA code in order to update the shapes in one go. My data source is on the sheet named "Data" with the shapes on one called "Shapes" with some example data as such -
AreaShape NameActualBudgetDiffRAG Status
EastFreeform110551
CentralFreeform11101000
WestFreeform111510-5-1

<tbody>
</tbody>

Potentially I do not need the RAG Status column as I can determine the required colour if the Diff value is positive, zero or negative. I have the recorded macro code to change the colour of an individual shape but now I'm stuck in progressing that to work based on values in another sheet.
Any help is appreciated - thanks.

Something like
Code:
Sub davey4444()
   Dim shp As Shape
   Dim Dws As Worksheet, Sws As Worksheet
   Dim Cl As Range
   Dim Clr
   
   Set Dws = Sheets("data")
   Set Sws = Sheets("Shapes")
   For Each Cl In Dws.Range("B2", Dws.Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
      Select Case Cl.Offset(, 4).Value
         Case Is < 0: Clr = vbRed
         Case 0: Clr = vbYellow
         Case Is > 0: Clr = vbGreen
      End Select
      Sws.Shapes(Cl.Value).fill.ForeColor.RGB = Clr
   Next Cl
End Sub
