Money raised for the Cameroon Water Appeal will help remote farming communities in the north west where cattle grazers and crop farmers are in conflict over access to precious natural resources such as land and water.

Antony Allen, of The Bakewell Soap Company, on Buxton Road, is donating 20p for every litre of water used in his soap production business to the campaign.

The Village Green Café, on The Square, in Eyam, is supporting the charity by encouraging customers who have a free tap water with their order to make a donation to the appeal.
