Penicuik group has a thirst for providing help

Penicuik for Africa’s project to repair ten wells used by up to 5,000 people in north Malawi is entering its second phase.

The £3,000 initiative will use up much of the organisation’s funds so a fundraising lunch is planned for March.

Dr Neville Suttle, from the PfA, said: “Jonty Hunter, of Drinkwell International, has had discussions with the local water monitoring officer to identify areas of need and draw up a list of villages and schools that could be serviced.

“Jonty has extra, skilled support in the form of two volunteers from London, Chris and Caitlin, who arrived recently on sabbatical from their day jobs with Thames Water. Chris and Caitlin have already made two field assessments and PfA will cover their future, modest accommodation costs.”
