Untapped appeal

Join our appeal and untap potential this winter. Everything your club or organisation donates before 31 January will be doubled by the UK Government (up to £5 million).

Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene should be a normal part of everyone’s daily life. But all over the world, communities like Tombohuaun in Sierra Leone are living without these essential human rights, leaving their lives at risk and their potential untapped.

Double your impact

No child can play, learn and grow when they are sick from drinking dirty water.

No mum can be her best when she has to walk for hours to collect water from a river.

No family can thrive when they spend what little income they have on medicine.

Will your club or organisation help whole communities like Tombohuaun tap into their potential and change their lives for good? Everything you donate between 1 November 2017 and 31 January 2018 will be doubled by the UK Government up to £5 million, and help up to 250,000 people around the world get clean water for the very first time.

We’ve created downloadable resources for you to help engage your club, including fundraising ideas, a presentation and an inspiring film (see above!). There are also handy paying in forms for you to send in with your fundraising to make sure that it can be matched.

Your generous support this winter will have double the impact – thank you so much!
