In 1960 Mike Paul and two english mates were all gaining experience working in architectural practices in Canada. One of them owned a mini and they decided to spend two months driving round America looking at its most extraordinary architecture. Mike kept a written journal and a sketchbook in which he made beautiful drawings of the places they visited. Three tall young men, all their camping equipment and gear crammed into a tiny car were quite a sight, in the southern states they were hounded out of town as scruffy bearded outsiders. Enjoy Mike’s memories of the trip and the beautiful drawings he made.
In 2014 Karen Binns and Tony Evans set up a charity in their son Rory’s name to provide essential support to communities in rural Sierra Leone. Rory’s Well has drilled 17 wells to date, which have brought essential clean, safe drinking water to communities in desperate need of it. Since 2015, Rory's Well has progressed into further projects focusing on supporting the 'basics of life': clean water, food, health and livelihood. Listen to the story of this inspirational Wotton couple and their extraordinary project.
