The Big Spring Swim

Why we're taking the plunge this November

This November, we're making a splash in WaterAid's Big Spring Swim to raise money for the 1 in 10 people worldwide who don't have clean water close to home. 

WaterAid is an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.

With all three, people can unlock their potential, break free from poverty, and change their lives for good. Children grow up healthy and strong, women and men get to earn a living, whole communities start to thrive. 

 Every dollar makes a huge difference.

  • $30 can build a simple handwashing station to help stop the spread of disease
  • $50 can provide a student with clean water at school
  • $150 can help to buy a rainwater tank- so a family has clean water close to home

Please support us today.
