Staff working for South Staffs Water and other companies within the South Staffs group have raised a fantastic £28,000 for WaterAid over the past year, while donations from our customers have amounted to £530,000 since WaterAid was founded by the water industry in 1981 thank you!
Fundraisers have included a fly fishing event held at Blithfield Reservoir, a race night at The Belfry and a monthly lottery, all organised by our keen volunteers.
In 2013, 783 million people still lack access to clean water and 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation but you can help to transform lives and stop some of the 2,000 children who die needlessly every day by giving a regular donation. Just £2 per month could give one child access to clean, safe water for life, or give dignity to some of the women and girls who have nowhere safe or private to go to the toilet.
One customer who is a supporter of the charity, Susannah Gray, said: "Clean water is fundamental for all of us, yet so many people around the world don't have it. WaterAid is changing that by building wells and pumps.
That's why they are my charity of choice."
Last year SSW received Royal recognition for our 30 years of supporting WaterAid. Along with other water companies from across the UK, SSW was awarded WaterAid's highest honour, The President's Award, at the charity's Annual Supporters' Meeting.
