Supporting change

We are a longstanding supporter of WaterAid.

Last year our staff and partners raised over £58,000 to support the charity. Staff engage in a wide variety of fundraising activities for WaterAid such as dress down days, bake sales, quiz’s, raffles and physical challenges such as the Great West Run and Ride for London.

Our staff also launched the ‘Give an Hour Appeal’ for WaterAid, encouraging staff to donate their last hour’s pay for World Water Day in March each year in aid of WaterAid. Each year this raises in excess of £2,500 with more staff contributing each year.

Several of our employees have travelled overseas to see WaterAid's work on the ground and these experiences have helped them raise awareness and further fundraising for these crucial projects.

Our Employee Development Consultant Susie Golics spent eight days learning about WaterAid's work to improve safe water, hygiene and sanitation in Zambia in 2012. You can watch a video here, on Wateraid's Youtube channel, about her trip.
