Your fundraising could make all the difference...

Dig Deep With Penny Appeal- You can run the Virgin Money London Marathon to fund the construction of an entire water well that will serve a community day in, day out, providing them with fresh, clean water.  We all know that water is an essential need – but as well as being integral to stay hydrated, it is also indispensable to feed livestock and other animals so a regular source of income can be maintained, paving the way for the freedom of self-sufficiency we take for granted. Penny Appeal’s Dig Deep campaign aims to provide safe, clean drinking water for children, families and the elderly living in Africa


Community Deep Water Well - £4,000

By raising £4,000, you could give a whole community in Africa the water they need to thrive. In dry regions, wells need to be 10 meters deep before clean water is reached. Build a community well in your name or in the name of a loved one and give hundreds of people clean water for generations to come. 

There's no limit to how much you can raise. £8000 will fund two wells, and £12,000 could build three wells; transforming the lives of 3 entire communities. How many wells will you build? DIG DEEP with Penny Appeal and start fundraising by joining our CAMPAIGN PAGE today.
