Forfar Rotary Helps make Fruit when the Sunshines
After a very interesting talk at Rotary by Kevin Simpson of Malawi Fruits Charity a few weeks ago the International Committee decided to raise the £500 required to purchase a solar powered water pump. During the months of July and August, Rotarians were given a tube of Smarties and asked to fill the empty tube with 20p pieces. Thanks to all the Rotarians and some generous donations we raised the money required.
Last Wednesday Kevin was in Forfar at the Inner Wheel Club and came along to Rotary to be presented with a cheque for £500. While there, he informed us that Malawi Fruits has been given a matching grant from the UN, so he was able to buy 2 irrigation pumps with our donation.
