Step by step instructions
As many of you already know, we are supporting two South African based charities.
Lulisandla Kwmtwana -

Hipporollers water company –
the designers of such a simple invention that could be life changing for the people of rural African communties where the quest for water is such a struggle. It’s simple: a 90 litre water barrel, with handles that can be pulled behind with ease, through even sand and scrub, limiting the incidence of severe neck and back pain which is suffered by ladies who carry heavy water barrels on their heads on a regular basis.
For UK Givers:
It’s a little more complicated, because HippoRollers is a South African Charity.
We have a UK registered charity who will be collecting donations on our behalf for HippoRollers.
So please write a cheque payable to Winchester Vineyard
Write on the back and include a slip stating, Ref: HippoRollers Longwayhome
The Winchester Vineyard will then collect the cheques and transfer the money to HippoRollers. The Winchester Vineyard is a church that has agreed to do this on our behalf, as there have been some difficulties with making donations to this charity as it is South African.
This donation can also be gift aided, if you are a UK taxpayer, so please email Beth Sutton at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will forward you the giftaid form to complete.
Please send the cheques to:
