A LYMPSTONE woman is hoping people will attend an event at Crealy Park to help raise money for a water pump to help poverty-stricken African communities.

Jenny Clark, of Longmeadow Road, is determined to continue charitable efforts in her husband's memory, Tony Clark, who died suddenly two years ago, aged 56, of a heart attack.

Co-owner of the Eaton-Terry Clark property managers, Tony died before completing his aim of funding a 'play pump' for Africa.

Crealy will hold a hog roast, disco and the carousel ride will be open, at the fundraiser on Saturday, November 7. Money raised will go towards building a pump to take to Africa.

The play pump scheme cleverly uses a child's roundabout to power a water pump - giving kids a rare chance to play on proper equipment, while using their energy to boost vital water supplies.

Tickets, available from The Saddlers Arms, in Lympstone, and Eaton-Terry-Clark, at 41 Rolle Street, Exmouth, cost £15 for adults and £7.50 for children, aged up to 15-years-old.
