Rotarians from Exmouth have thanked all those who have helped to raise funds for visually impaired children in Africa.

The Rotary Club of Exmouth Raleigh, along with other branches from across the world, have been involved in a two-year project to give youngsters in Uganda a chance to go to school for the first time ever.

The international Rotarians have donated £1,000 to a project to build a residential hostel for visually impaired pupils at Katente West Primary School in the East African country.

A spokesperson for the Rotary Club of Exmouth Raleigh said: “With your help we have provided rain water collection and storage for the newly built residential hostel.

“Now that the guttering and tanks have been installed and the children have clean water for drinking and washing, 24 pupils (12 boys and 12 girls) can start school for the very first time.”
