Household goods manufacturer What More UK has lent a helping hand to the flood-stricken people of Pakistan by donating 900 buckets for the relief work.
The Lancashire-based company sent a pallet-load of the buckets to Pakistan after being approached by humanitarian aid charity Bootle Refugee Aid Cumbria UK.
Charity director Joan Capp explains: “Buckets are vital for collecting clean rainwater, and we needed to get some quickly. We found What More UK by conducting a simple internet search and they responded with just what we needed.
“The donation was very generous and the pallet of buckets has already gone to the airport for shipping to Pakistan. We are extremely grateful.”
Emily Gregson, who works in the What More sales office and arranged the donation, said: “We were happy to help with this good cause. The buckets will allow people to collect rainwater and they can also be used to carry other goods around.”
