We continue to promote the health benefits of drinking tap water and our water for health campaign aims to encourage people to lead a healthy lifestyle.
To date, over £341,000 has been provided to fund free mains-fed water coolers in schools and around 740 have been supplied in nearly 410 schools. We also continue to promote bottle-free water coolers as a sustainable alternative to bottle-fed coolers. Similarly, we use our ‘tap into’ initiative to donate bottled tap water to community sporting events in order to promote the importance of rehydration during exercise. This year we donated 82,300 bottles of tap water to events.
Working with a wide and diverse range of sporting partners is a natural extension of our water for health campaign and we work with them to support grassroots sporting activities to get people active as well as educating them on healthy eating and good hydration.
Through our partnerships we have reached over 96,000 children and adults. We provide:
• Links and networks to enable sporting partners to get together to share ideas and resources.
• Financial support of approximately £50,000 per annum.
