SolarAid are reminding people that there is only three days remaining of its UK government aid match scheme where all donations within the UK will be matched pound for pound.
Jeremy Leggett, chairman of Solarcentury and SolarAid, said: “Having just spent some time with rural African families, I have seen first hand the great power of solar energy. It has the power to transform lives through poverty alleviation; the power to help children study at night and to make families feel safe in their home. SolarAid are providing affordable solar lights to these communities through school networks. But there are still millions without access. Please help us change this. Give before the 1st March and the UK government will match your donation pound for pound.”
