A MALVERN consultancy’s sponsorship of a charity calendar has helped to raise $8,500 for the UN Foundation’s Nothing but Nets Campaign.

The campaign provides insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families from contracting malaria.

Quest for Future Solutions director Julia Goodfellow-Smith said there were several reasons her company wanted to support the campaign.

“We knew that supporting the Nothing But Nets campaign would reduce suffering and save lives, which is fantastic. By supporting this calendar, we have spread the word far more widely, supported young people to develop their confidence and skills to create positive change, and provided leverage to fund more nets than our initial donation on its own.”

It costs $10 to provide a net that will protect a family for four to five years. For more information about the campaign visit nothingbutnets.net.
