Running The Renewable World
A quick news blast regarding our friends at Renewable World. Five of their noblest souls are pounding the streets for the Brighton Marathon this Sunday morning, helping to raise funds for the charity.
Renewable World are, as you probably know, all about using smart, affordable technology to help make the lives of people in remote rural communities that little bit better. They were featured on BBC's Lifeline appeal programme back in February, and are doing amazing work worldwide.
Tom Morton, Hayley Court, Fran Witt, Neil Gunning and Jim Watson are all running to help Renewable World to deliver energy from renewable resources to power lights, refrigerators for medicines, water pumps, and agricultural improvements. The ultimate aim is to increase living standards and incomes, and improve health and welfare for everyone that needs their help.
Can't say fairer than that, can you? You can help by giving to Tom's JustGiving site, or Jim's JustGiving site. Or, if you're in Brighton on Sunday, why not pop down and cheer them to the finish line? Look out for the natty green T-shirts... supplied by Pier32, of course!
