The Longfield Hospice
Our latest charity work sees us donating bottles of water for their popular Summer Solstice Walk. The Longfield Hospice provides the most modern palliative care facilities in Gloucestershire, supporting patients, families and carers.
The Pied Piper Appeal
Peter Glanville, WCD Group Operations Director is on the board for the Gloucestershire based children’s charity, The Pied Piper Appeal, alongside our marketing manager Cathryn Hage. As a company, we have supported Peter and Cathryn in all of their fundraising efforts raising over £50,000 for the charity.
Coolers for Schools
The WCD Group is always keen to provide schools with free water coolers. It is part of our initiative to hydrate school children as it is now commonly known that children who drink plenty of water have improved concentration levels and ability to learn.
If you want to enquire about a free water cooler for your school then please contact our friendly sales team on 0800 7311 491.
Donations to FRANK
We have donated over £7,400 to FRANK water, the majority of which has helped to provide a clean water facility for over 6,000 people in the village of Pedatummedi in Andhra Pradesh, India. Katie Harrison, Founder of FRANK water projects said, “With the help of WaterCoolersDirect we have saved lives by installing the clean water projects”.
Donations to Oxfam
WaterCoolersDirect is proud to have donated around £7,00 for Oxfam to supply 4,000 people with safe water every day. The donation has bought 495,000 litre tanks, which are for use in emergency situations when people have been forced to leave their homes. Each tank supplies 1,000 people a day with safe water.
