Event information

Set your own fundraising mission today and help bring clean water to millions of people around the world.

This June, join the Mission: Water movement, and come together with water industry employees across Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales in a week of collective action and fundraising.

Our mission

One day, every person on this planet will have clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

That’s our mission – right now, right here, on earth. And you can be part of making that day closer. Are you with us?

How to take part

Join your company’s team and tackle your very own fundraising challenge, either as an individual or in a group – you could join forces with your colleagues, set up a cross-departmental team, or even get your friends and family on board.

You’ll be competing against others across the UK water industry to be crowned the Mission Water Champion!

To take part, choose from one of the following three categories:

Then complete your chosen challenge during Mission: Water Week, from 5 to 11 June 2023.

Your mission can make a world of difference

Whatever you decide to do, the funds you raise will bring us closer to our shared mission: a world in which every single person has clean water.

And for girls like 16-year-old Atalel, that clean water can be truly life-changing.

She used to be responsible for collecting water for her family, spending hours each day walking to and from the closest river to her home in Finote Salam, Ethiopia. The time it took meant she was often late for school, missing out on vital chances to complete her education – and with it, the opportunity to shape her own future.

I feel really excited because we have tap water now. I'm sure our lives will be changed for good.

With clean water on tap – made possible thanks to the support of water industry members like you – everything's changed for Atalel and her family.

They no longer fall ill from drinking dirty, worm-infested river water. Her mother can concentrate on running her small business and earning a decent living. And Atalel's using the time she used to spend fetching water to focus on studying hard, looking forward to the future and choosing her own mission.
