Cake & sandwich sale - fundraising week at geography

Next week, 4th - 7th May, third-year and Masters students along with the Geography Society are hosting a week-long cake and sandwich sale to raise money for the charity Friends From Marich Pass in Kenya.
Sparked by the slow progress of the construction of a new health clinic in one of the local villages, Tikit, students have decided to raise money as a way of 'giving something back' to those communities who partake in research for Geography Dept. students year-on-year. Money will be channelled through and distributed for projects in Marich, Mbara and Tikit by the Marich Pass Field Studies Centre.
In the first instance the funds will go towards completion of a clinic in Tikit where there are no health facilities for miles and towards the provision of drinking water. There is no potable water in the village. The charity also supports a number of educational projects.
