GENEROUS Rotarians in Wallasey are donating their compensation for water supply problems to charity.
Thousands of homes across Wallasey Village, Wallasey, Moreton and Leasowe were left without water for up to four days earlier this month after United Utilities carried out repairs on a water main and a major water valve.
Compensation payments ranging from £25 to £65 are being sent out this week to those affected.
The Rotary Club of Wallasey said it would pass the money on to Water Aid, a charity dedicated to providing clean water for communities.
President Mike Elkerton said, “Even basic hygiene was difficult and made us realise how much we take for granted when millions across the world are without this fundamental need every day.
“There are some 884 million people in the world who lack access to safe water and more than 2.5 billion people who have no access to improved sanitation.
“5,000 children in the world under the age of five die every day from unsafe water, poor sanitation and hygiene.”
Anyone who would like to give all or part of their compensation payment to the charity can donate to the club’s appeal at Barclays Bank in Liscard.
Money can also be donated to the club at their weekly meetings at the Hollins Hey Hotel, New Brighton.
