About the track

Rich and Pippa supports
Corner Oak Trust

We are raising money for a well which has been sunk in a small village in the Emali region of South Eastern Kenya. Jonathan Mboya, a friend of the Pearce family, whose family still live in the village, has dug a borehole on his land and is making water available at little or no cost to the villagers. The 150 households live on whatever crops they can raise and on their animals. The rains normally fall during 2 periods of the year, but outside those seasons the region is completely arid. Each year crops and animals die in the months before the rains come. The youngsters, particularly the girls, walk up to 6 or 7 miles in order to fetch water. This seriously affects their education, which reinforces the poverty cycle. The well is now completed and providing good clean water! The charity still needs to raise funds to pay off loans and, more importantly, to pay for a “drip irrigation” system from the well to the villagers’ fields, giving a constant supply of water and food throughout the year as well as maintenance for the well in the future. We would be thrilled if you would download our song and help us to support this cause! The song was written by me (Rich), somewhat prophetically a few days before meeting Pippa(!)... now brought to fruition with Pip's beautiful supporting vocals and cello playing, kindly recorded by our good friend Iain Millar. Thank you so much for your generosity, Rich and Pippa
