BEVERLEY: Volunteers from town charity Jacob's Well are to travel to west Africa on their latest mercy mission.
Five volunteers, led by Reverend John Beynon, are to fly to Burkina Faso to build a water tower for a 250-pupil school for refugee children.
Dr Peter Beynon, one of the charity's leaders, said the water tower will provide a fresh supply of water for the school's pupils.
He said: "The school has not got water on site, it is brought in a big barrel on a donkey.

"Money has been raised for a bore hole and our group is going out there to put up a water tower, so water can be pumped into the school."
HULL: A red carpet-themed party raised £22,300 in memory of a young woman who lost her battle against leukaemia.
Kirsty Longfellow, 24, died in March, one week before the event was due to go ahead.
Friends and family vowed to reschedule the party to honour her last wish and it went ahead at Hull City Hall earlier this month.
The black-tie event raised money for the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research charity and the Teenage Cancer Trust unit at Castle Hill Hospital, where Kirsty passed away.
Kirsty, of Burton Pidsea, underwent treatment but the leukaemia was too aggressive and she relapsed. She then made the decision not to have any more treatment, instead choosing to spend the time she had left with her family and friends.
