The photograph shows secretary of Barnsley Rotary Club, Keith Hickie, presenting a cheque for £500 to Margaret Ripley and Carol Fife Jones who both help to run the Monkey Bay Fund.
The fund was set up to help feed and educate the 150 small children of the village of Madalitso in Malawi in Africa. Carol, who works as a teacher at Darton College, has recently returned from the village after she and her two children spent the summer holidays there working with the children. She said,” They have absolutely nothing in the huts only a mat on which the whole family sleep at night. They cook on open fires in the huts.” The money donated by Barnsley Rotary Club will help provide concrete ovens in the family huts so that the children can no longer fall into the open cooking fires.
