St Mary’s is turning to crowdfunding to complete our ambitious fundraising target to build a water pump in our linked village in Mpwapwa, Tanzania.

Having chosen the project to support as our Charity of the Year in January 2020, we set out with a target of raising 50% of the £40,000 needed to build the pump.
However, through the extraordinary generosity of Redbourn villagers, (and despite the restrictions of the Covid pandemic), we have actually raised over 75% of the total, and we’ve now decided to launch to a crowdfunding campaign to reach the full amount before the end of this year.

Last week Will was interviewed by Steve Simpson on Radio Verulam all about our fundraising for Mpwapwa: the long friendship between St Mary’s and Mpwapwa, his visit there 10 years ago, and how our crowdfunding appeal is going.
If you missed it, you can listen below – the interview is about 10 minutes long.
