As part of our plans to raise the profile of our innovative and important work bringing water to rural and remote communities in Malawi we are planning on attending a range of events over the summer. Last weekend we visited Nizels Golf Club to demonstrate our self-supply pump at The Henry Cooper Junior Golf Masters. The fantastic thing about the self-supply pump is that as a simple rope and washer pump parts are cheap and easily available and thus the pumps can easily be maintained and repaired by the local entrepreneurs we have been training through our self-supply pilot programme.
We met some interesting people and are very hopeful that some of the conversations we had could lead to some interesting developments for the charity.
We are hugely thankful for the support of Thirsty Planet who made our attendance possible as it was based on our double page spread in the event programme.
We will also be visiting Yorkshire in the coming months as we promote our summer campaign at the Yorkshire County Cricket Club near Leeds. If you spot our stand do come and say hello and find out more about our work and how Thirsty Planet is supporting it. If you are running an event over the summer that you think we would make a nice addition to please do get in touch. JoannaBirch-Phaure@Pumpaid.org
