Hydro’s helping hand

Hydro International, supplier of stormwater and wastewater solutions, has kicked off a charity drive to raise £10,000 to provide a rainwater harvesting system for a school in Nepal.

Hydro's helping hand

The year of fundraising for WaterAid started with an ‘It’s a Knockout’ event which raised nearly £4,000 towards the target. The system, once installed will provide 900 children and 15 teachers with clean water.

Employees, suppliers and business partners competed on a “fiendish” obstacle course, made possible with key sponsorship from Micro Drainage, Burdens and Fränkische.

Hydro International managing director Europe, Chris Williams (who is currently organising a Lands End to John O’Groats Cycle Challenge in aid of WaterAid) said: “This is the first time that Hydro has committed to a company-wide sponsorship.

“We were very impressed by the work of WaterAid all over the world. But in particular our employees were keen to be involved with a rainwater-harvesting project because of the clear synergies it has to our business. ”

Fiona Blake, Business Development Manager from WaterAid said: “I am delighted that Hydro International has launched a corporate partnership with WaterAid in support of our vital work and is planning an exciting calendar of fundraising events during 2007/8.
