Collection for Philippine Disaster Appeal

Written by Administrator. Posted in How we have helped

AquaboxFollowing a collection, by the Rotary Club of Kendal, at a supermarket on Saturday and also at the recent concert in the Leisure Centre, the sum of just short of £2000 was raised, which will be used to purchase ‘Aquaboxes’ to be sent to the Philippines as part of their disaster appeal request.

An ‘Aquabox’ is a means of ensuring safe drinking water, a necessity vital for such emergencies. Very many thanks to all who contributed so generously. Further information on Aquaboxes can be found at: http://www.aquabox.org .
