Well wishers give hope to Windy Village

By EMMA CORNFORD

THE dull thud of feet marching down the road echoed in Carol Ordish's ears, near the Cambodian settlement of Windy Village.

But there was no army. Instead it was a group of people, including seven from the Clarence Valley, moving a building by sheer manpower.

"That was really one of the most amazing things ... but really the whole experience was quite amazing," said Mrs Ordish.

The group, who helped in a number of humanitarian projects including sinking a well at Windy Village, returned to Grafton on January 20 after the two week trip.

For months the group fundraised in Grafton and got more than $1700, which was put towards projects in Cambodida.

"We want to thank everyone for their help (and) share with the community what went on over there, so people can see what can happen when people get together despite their differences."

Those interested in seeing what the group did can meet with them at the Grafton Community Centre on Friday from 3.30pm - 5.00pm, and at Shoppingworld on Thursday March 2 from 5pm - 7pm.
