Philip Staton of Mosborough High street , Chairman of the local history group,and President of Rotary District 1220 E-Cluband.Is inviting everyone to a guided charity woodland walk, to raise funds to buy a Aquabox purification device to aid victims of the Ukraine war.

Philip Said “ The Rotary Club normally does walks in May,I thought it would be nice to do a fundraiser.

We thought we could raise funds for a filter which turns water contaminated with anything upto cholera in it, and can make it into drinking water.”

“It uses a hand pump so there's no electricity, and over its lifespan it's capable of producing 500,000 litres of drinking water.

We have a link with a guy who is driving a minibus over there every two or three weeks with aid , so I thought it would be nice to merge the two”

It’s hoped that donations from the walk will generate enough money to buy an Aquabox.
