See below, appreciative email received from Roger Cassidy (second right in the pic'), trustee of Aquabox, this year's Ashbourne CAMRA 2018 Beer & Cider Festival's nominated charity:

'Thank you for sending through the pictures of last Sunday night's presentation.

It was a great pleasure to come along to your meeting yesterday and receive the cheque.

Receiving over £500 was fantastic and with such a sum, we are able to supply an 'Aqua 12' (Box of 12 'Family' filters) and a Community filter. These 13 filters will provide enough water for over 400 people, and Ashbourne CAMRA's efforts will make a real difference to communities in the aftermath of a disaster.

I mentioned last Friday that we have seen an unprecedented demand for water filters over the past 2-3 months as a result of the natural disasters in Southern India, the Philippines and Indonesia, as well as the human tragedies that are unfolding in the Yemen and Cameroon, and I thought you would be interested in receiving and reading the attached article*.

Thanks once again for all of your support and, if the Ashbourne CAMRA Beer & Cider Festival is good enough to choose Aquabox as their nominated charity next year, we would be delighted to work together once again.

Thank you for your help.

Roger
Aquabox Trustee'
