The Wishing Well at Greyhound Gets a Facelift

The Greyhound Wishing Well has had a facelift thanks to Robert Eggeleston’s financial generosity and Bernard Johnson - Lutterworth Rotary’s Secretary and practical man who over the years has turned his hand to anything that goes under the name of charity.

We as a club would like to help Water Aid reduce the number of children who die from having diarrhoea because they lack clean water and sanitation.

(A staggering 4,000 a day around the world).

As Water Aid say it’s not just saving lives but is the first steps out of poverty.  Some 884 million people around the world still lack access to safe water and 2.5 billion have no access to sanitation.

To date Water Aid with supporters like Rotary have already helped to bring health benefits, education and livelihoods to over 13 million people.

The Well at the Greyhound will do more than just collect money locally it will help to make people aware that in many parts of the world – water does not just flow from a tap as if by magic – clean water is a prize possession essential to man’s survival.

Let our Wishing Well help to make our dream come true by reducing the number of people unable to access clean water.

The need for clean water is global – let us play our small part in helping to relieve parts of the world who are not as fortunate as us.
