WATSAN supporter Mandy McIntosh runs a fair trade shop in Ashby de la Zouch. During COVID-19 she is selling online and donating 10% of her takings to WATSAN.
Mandy says: “Like so many other ‘non-essential’ retail shops, fair2all is closed for browsing and buying until lockdown ends. An increasing range of gift items can be purchased from www.fair2all.net.
“My biggest disappointment is that unlike previous years, fair2all will not achieve the sales, and the 10% of takings I had planned to give WATSAN will be a lot less. I have therefore decided to give 10% of my takings during lockdown to WATSAN.”
In 2017 Mandy was part of a team who went to South West Uganda and participated in a WATSAN project working with the local community to provide latrines in their school. Once the latrine block for older girls was completed, over 60 girls returned to education.
WATSAN’s trustees would like to thank Mandy very much for this generous contribution towards our fundraising for Bwanga Hill – and of course encourage other supporters to do their Christmas shopping on the Fair2All website!
