Swing money helps Ugandan orphans

More than $8450 was raised to help feed orphans in Uganda by Shotover Canyon Swing customers between April 10 and May 10.

The annual fundraiser involved customers paying $10 for an extra swing and all proceeds went to Orphans Aid International's Imuka project.

Shotover Canyon Swing general manager Matt Hollyer said the money raised was enough to supply food for one child for 1690 weeks or to feed 32 children for a year.
