MEMBERS of Bowland Interact Club were delighted to be able to present a cheque for £322.74 to the Rotary Club of Ribblesdale to buy life-saving LifeStraws.

A LifeStraw is a portable water filter that effectively removes all bacteria and parasites from dirty water.

It requires no electrical power or spare parts and can be carried around to enable easy access to safe and clean water, proving invaluable in many of the latest natural disasters when the drinking water becomes contaminated.

The club held a chocolate tombola, which proved very popular with fellow students and also a “Wear what you want day” which both helped to raise the incredible total.

Bowland Interact Club meets on alternate Monday lunchtimes at Bowland High School.
