Get involved

You could win up to £5,000 in our raffles and help give the gift of clean water to more children like Lydia.

Lydia lives in the Manjakandriana district, Madagascar. Every day after school she has to collect water for her family from the water point behind her village. Even though Lydia’s family boil the water, it still makes them sick. Frequent upset stomachs and diarrhoea means that Lydia misses a lot of school and the opportunity to learn and achieve her goals.

The good news is that Lydia’s story can change. By taking part in our raffles, you can help bring taps close to the homes of children like Lydia, providing clean water that will help them be healthy and stay in school.

Tickets are just £1 each and every ticket you buy gives you a chance to win one of our fantastic prizes – including the incredible £5,000 jackpot!

Our raffles are currently closed, but keep an eye out to see when the next one opens!
