Can you carry a watermelon?
Every year, Belu supporters follow in the footsteps of Dirty Dancing’s awkward heroine and carry a watermelon for the duration of World Water Week.
The aim is not only to put the ‘fun’ back into ‘fundraising’, but to help raise awareness of the millions of people around the world who still live without access to safe, clean water, and have to walk miles every day to collect this vital resource.
In 2014, the Belu team raised over £9,000 during the course of the week, gaining attention all across London as they took their watermelons on the tube, to yoga classes and concerts. A huge thank you to everyone who took part!
