The Rutland fundraising group for WaterAid staged a highly successful cake, plant, produce and book stall in Market Place, Uppingham, to raise funds for a new scheme.

Rutland MP Alan Duncan joined the team as they did their bit for the charity’s To Be a Girl campaign.

Between June and September WaterAid aims to raise £1m to give girls around the world clean, safe water and sanitation. The Government is matching every donation given to the appeal.

The stall raised £810, bringing the group’s total for the cause to £1,620.

Organiser Hilary Williams said: “This is one of the most vital appeals that WaterAid has undertaken and a very big thank you to all Rutlanders who shopped at our stall or donated the wonderful selection of cakes, plants and produce. Thank you also to the Government.”
