Glovertown’s walk raises more than $11,000


Glovertown, Nfld., held their 18th Walk for Water on June 11 with terrific results. About 45 people came out to raise money for clean drinking water in India – and they did! More than $11,300 was donated, which translates to 10 bore wells. In addition, Glovertown Academy’s Grade 5 class held their own Walk for Water, which raised enough money to complete payment for a fourth well from that school.
