Give aid to water charity

A CHARITY night to raise money for Wateraid will take place in Leigh tonight (Friday).

The event, organised by 17 Christian Churches in Leigh, will be held at Sacred Heart Parish Centre, Walmesley Road, on Friday, August 3.

Starting at 7.30pm, the night includes a raffle, a bring and buy sale and a presentation by a volunteer of Wateraid.

Tickets cost £1.

Organiser Julia Galloway said: “This year, despite recession, it is hoped we can raise enough to help WaterAid’s vision of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation, which are basic human rights. Every 20 seconds a child dies somewhere from polluted water.”
