It is important for people to lead a healthy lifestyle and drinking tap water is a good way to stay hydrated and maintain good health.
Our bottled tap water initiative supports outdoor activities such as runs and walks organised by charities while promoting the importance of staying hydrated.
In 2016 we have given out over 88,000 bottles of water to 183 organisations – 57 in the south. Applications are now closed and will reopen in January 2017.
We started handing out water at local events and to organisations in 2005 and since then we’ve distributed one million bottles. We’re committed to supporting our local communities and giving something back to the customers we serve and our free bottled water fits perfectly with this strategic theme.
Since the scheme started we’ve helped over 2,400 organisations as they arrange fun runs, outdoor activities and community events. Each year we try to support as many people as possible with this form of charitable donation. As well as giving a boost to the event, we also hope it reminds customers how good our water tastes and the importance of staying hydrated.
So as each bottle contains 250ml this means we’ve given away a massive 250,000 litres, or 3,125 baths over 10 years!
