The weekend's Parachute Christian music saw festival-goers dig deep to raise money to buy vital medical equipment for a small African village.

Cash raised at Sunday morning's communion meeting will fund equipment for a medical centre in Tubehoneza, Rwanda.

The centre was built by Parachute attendees, with the musical festival raising $303,000 for the Tubehonza community over the past six years.

The money would go towards neo-natal care equipment.
