Pink Panther took guard on the night, carefully bringing the crowd to the boil with his quality vocal and progressive beats and handing a buzzing dancefloor to Marc Flood. Marc parried with a barrage of mesmerising hypnotic rhythms, taking the vibes ever higher until Jonty delivered the coup de grâce, as hands raised in surrender to his classic chunky grooves.

Many thanks to the DJ’s and everyone who attended for creating a great atmosphere, everyone who helped out and to the Wedgewood Rooms for their support. Special shouts to Ruby for the flyer (see more of her artwork at www.rubydjordjevic.co) and Kelly for the decor.

Our next fundraising event on Saturday August 5th – The Three Musketeers at The Edge Of The Wedge

Three Musketeers at The Edge Of The Wedge 5 August

The Three Musketeers aka DJ’s Jonty, Marc Flood and Pink Panther bring the noise to The Edge Of The Wedge on Saturday 5th August from 8pm. Admission is free with donations on the door to No More Durty Water.

Get your glad rags and dancing shoes on as the Three Musketeers ride the decks in aid of No More Durty Water. Fresh from whipping up a storm at the Summer Love festival, Jonty makes a welcome return to the home of The Fishtank where he made his name. Known for consistently rocking the floor with his mix of chunky uplifting house and big rollin’ beats, don’t miss Jonty’s return to Albert Road.

Marc Flood is another Southsea legend and festival floor-filler, having smashed it at Riba Rocks, Bugged Out and his own Tomaito Tomato nights with deeper underground vibes. Marc drops warped and dirty basslines over nasty tech-house and twisted vocals to devastating effect, throwing in some exclusive cuts from his own productions for good measure.

Expect the unexpected as Pink Panther from Serbia makes his debut on the south coast. Bringing an eclectic blend of juicy drum & bass and bouncy progressive grooves, Pink Panther will lead you directly to the dancefloor.

All for one and one for all, these Three Musketeers invite you to join them for a hot summer night of bumping tunes on a sweet sound system at The Edge Of The Wedge 147b Albert Road, Southsea PO4 0JW. For more details on this party call 079 7035 4202, email info@nomoredurtywater.org or click here to find us on Facebook.

Portsmouth couple donate wedding presents to fund clean water in Uganda

Back in June last year, Billy Steere and his fiancée Honey Lindo were getting hitched at Portsmouth Museum. But long after the dust has settled on their wedding celebrations, a rural community in South West Uganda continues to toast their nuptials… in clean water.
Instead of a wedding list, matching kitchen appliance sets or even a contribution to the honeymoon, Billy and Honey asked their wedding guests for cash donations towards the work of the Southsea based charity they support, No More Durty Water.
Friends and family attending the wedding raised the amazing sum of £1200, enough to bore an entire well and install a protected spring in the village of Kahororo in the district of Rukungiri in Uganda. The well was finished in December 2016 and the above images show the site as it progressed from breaking ground to the villagers gathering to collect water for the first time.
DJ Billy said about the day:
“I was amazed and delighted by the generosity of the guests at our wedding day. Honey and I never imagined we could raise enough for an entire well. We’ve supported the work of No More Durty Water for many years and we’re so glad to be able to make a difference. It makes the day even more special for us and our family”.

No More Durty Water believes that clean water is a basic human right and the generosity shown by Billy, Honey and their friends and families will bring positive change to many aspects of life in Kahororo for years to come. Health, welfare, economic activity and education all benefit from a plentiful supply of the essential element that we all take for granted, clean water.

No More Durty Water is proud to partner with The Bridge of Hope Children’s Ministry, which provides the surveying and construction expertise and contractors necessary to deliver our projects to budget in remote areas of Uganda, where many people struggle to get access to water for cooking, washing and agriculture.

Billy and Honey’s wedding day gifts paid for the first of several wells in Uganda the charity has commissioned from fundraising activities in 2015-16. Communities and lives can be transformed for as little as £1200 – £1500 and No More Durty Water will be releasing further details of clean water projects after many fundraising events, including those given in honour of charity founder Paul Keeler who died in 2015. A new website will be launched in spring 2017 with details of how to get involved in the charity and full information on future projects.
