Local opticians helps support clean drinking water in Tanzinia

10 April 2014

At the March 2014 meeting of Harrogate Chamber of Commerce, M.Procter Opticians of Harrogate invited members present to donate £50 to provide a family in Tanzinia with clean drinking water – for life!

The 11 people who pledged £50 were entered into a prize draw to win a pair of RayBan sunglasses, donated by M.Procter Opticians.

The lucky winner was Sarah Martin of Retro Runaways, a VW campervan hire firm, based in Harrogate.

Diseases contracted by drinking contaminated water are the number one killer of children in sub-Saharan Africa. Just £50 buys a small, portable filtration system which lasts a life-time.

With your help, Harrogate charity ‘HG1000’ will provide 1,000 families with clean, safe water – for life.
