WATER AID BIKER CAROL GILLIES MEETS UP WITH MOD SQUAD
Written by Archie Fergusson on 28/05/2015
On May 1st Carol Gillies set off on her Suzuki V-Strom motorbike to ride around Scotland anti-clockwise, riding mainly b and c roads, in order to take in as much of the coastline as possible. (Apart from the obvious bit where the border is! and the land ends ) she miles completed nearly 2000 in total
For a great deal of the journey Carol could see water a constant reminder to her of why she was doing this, and whilst she travelled along the coast the greatest amount of water she could see was undrinkable because it is salt water.
For many folk in this world the only water they know is dirty in fact filthy, full of bacteria, parasites and animal faeces and as it is the only water available.
Every single day, 1,400 children die from drinking it.
That’s one a minute, every day.
Carol did this in the hope of attracting your attention just for a wee while enough time to make you aware of Water Aid
WaterAid is a charity that works in places all over the world where people have no access to clean water. At all…
One in ten people in the world have no access to clean, drinkable water. That’s about 748 million people. Every day is a struggle just to find enough to stay alive,
Carol we be calling into the 97.4FM Studio to talk to Mod Squad presenters Fryll and Jeniffer with a full report of her adventure
