At the 2018 convention, business display and gala dinner, the BWCA raised an additional £7000 along with the £30,000 raised prior to now.
Commenting at the background to the hyperlinks between Just a Drop and BWCA, Phillipa Atkinson-Clow, common supervisor of the BWCA mentioned: “On a single day in 2016 something astonishing happened. The launch of what we thought would be the start of a year-long campaign achieved success in less than 24 hours. That campaign was a fundraising programme to raise money for our newly chosen charity, Just a Drop, in order to create a water source for a village in Africa.”
And so started a programme of labor which bureaucracy a part of the BWCA’s 5 for five Sustainability Pledge.
Phillipa added that BWCA participants have persisted to lift cash in imaginative tactics along with supporting the ones actions organised by way of the Association. Until the 2018 convention the BWCA had raised £30,000. In 2018, BWCA can be turning in two additional borehole secure water initiatives in Zambia.
Speaking on the BWCA convention in Nottingham on March 8, Brendan Hanlon of Just a Drop, instructed delegates: “This year you are creating two more communities that will be healthier thanks to having clean water sources. Another 430 people will be able to access clean water. As they are healthier, children will be able to spend more time at school, and women of these villages will have improved productivity, spending more time following other productive pursuits, improving lives into the future”.
