The Rotary Club of Somer Valley recently donated £3,000 to World Wide Water Works Ltd to help with water aid in Nepal. Lawrence Kettle, Chairman of the Club’s International Committee was also hoping to obtain £2,000 matched funding from The Big Gift. The donation was gratefully received by Ray Lithgo, member of Chelwood Bridge Rotary and a Director of World Wide Water Works Ltd.
Ray explained that they are desperate for donations to ensure water boxes can be filled with survival equipment and shipped out urgently. Therefore this contribution will be used immediately to purchase the survival equipment needed.
As a follow-up to the recent donation, in one hour during the morning of Thursday 4 June members of Somer Valley filled 60 Water Boxes in readiness for a second consigned to be sent to Nepal.
