BESTIVAL-goers can raise charity cash by keeping hydrated this weekend.
Isle of Wight charity Roll Out the Barrel Trust, has 100 cases of 50cl water which they are selling off for a donation.
Money raised will go towards buying Rotary Water Barrels for children in developing countries to stop them being forced to carry 20 litres on their head, for up to five miles each day.
The suggested donation of £4 will mean the buyer receives 12 bottles of water at around 33p per bottle, nearly half of the average retail price of water in shops.

To Answer you David... a rotary barrel is a simple push/pull 30 or 50 litre capacity Roll-Along Water Barrel with a handle and rubber tyres, it helps make it less strenuous and dangerous for children and also helps them collect the water and is much easier for them to transport. I can honestly say to you that yes the barrels do get to there destination and if you would like to see and read some stories, you can go to our website www.rotb.co.uk

Hi. I work for Roll Out the Barrel and I would just like to say that all the money that is raised goes to providing Rotary barrels to under developing countries and not into the hands of any "leaders" in Africa. We have actually sent over 1000 barrels and not only 300. Please Mr Don Prescott, if you would like to find out the correct information before you post untrue statement on here, you are more then welcome to contact myself or my work colleagues.

I have sent an email to the gentleman mentioned in the article. I think he needs to see what Mr Prescott has said.

I am shocked and sickened at my fellow islanders making claims and accusations below. I do not know this chairs, but to suggest they are doubling up is a disgrace. My daughter ran a charity building huts in Uganda and there is such a lot of hard work involved. How somebody can make a claim like below is pretty outstanding, is this moderated? You have suggested a charity is on the take. I am going to read about them now. Barry.

It's a plastic barrel with a handle, a bit like a lawn roller.

What is a rotary water barrel? - And after all the recent scepticism about charities, I have to ask. - Will ALL the money collected go to the deserving cause?
