Click 4 Action eRotary Secretary Tim says having grown up with the sea just a few miles away I have been blessed with having water surrounding me and actually just in my home through the tap. Without this precious liquid we couldn’t live, but our lives would be so much harder without it, so I am so pleased Rotary Clubs around the world are involved in helping people in communities obtain water easily, but we mustn’t give up as there is so much more to do.

During June I was privileged to attend the Musical Event organised by Uplands Interact Club, to raise funds for the Roll Out the Barrel Project to buy 10 Barrels to help children in Africa carry water more simply and efficiently, helping them to be able to get school on time and to learn. The Uplands Interact Club wrote to schools in Swindon to ask them for their help to put on an event to help other children. The resulting concert was an amazing experience for the pupils that took part and the fact we achieved those Barrels which are now in use.

So it is with excitement we ask everyone to help for us to write a song for Christmas – Rotarian Pa Modou a member of Click 4 Action eRotary
