Good deal for Fresh Start Foundation

13/05/2009

Lamin Daffeh, founder of the Fresh Start Foundation, appeared on television’s Deal or No Deal on Friday 8th May to win funds to provide a school in The Gambia (West Africa) with a borehole that would supply clean running water.

Unfortunately, those famous red boxes (containing the highest value prizes) were opened early in the game and he only won £10. Deal or No Deal’s ‘banker’ was kind enough to double this to £20 which FSF is grateful for, but bigger thanks must go to the Deal or No Deal viewers who have donated over £1000 online by using Everyclick.

FSF had previously raised £2000 since March 2007, so to have increased the total by a third in just a week is fantastic. Fresh Start are still fundraising to reach their targets.
