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.

It turned out that Saturday was the rainiest day of the year with 40mm falling. We have received $6,085. You and HAVE supporters do make a difference. Thank you! David Phillips and the Walk Team
