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.

Aquabox Trustee'
