Letters: Donor should be thanked

Rotarian in England seeks donor who gave money for Nepal relief

On 11 May a donation of £50 was paid into our charity’s bank account – the payee was shown as Sooke Sooke TP/Roygld. We launched an appeal for £75,000 following the Nepal earthquake disaster on 25 April to pay the cost of 500 Water-Survival Boxes to go to families that have lost everything or lack access to safe drinking water.

We are a Rotary charity based near Bath in England and would dearly like to thank the donor. The only reference I can find to Sooke on the internet suggests that the donor might live in your community. Could you please publish this email and we would be delighted if the donor did get to read it. Details of our charity can be found on our website www.worldwaterworks.org   Best wishes.

Director of Operations

Past President – Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge in North East Somerset, England
