We work with communities to improve access to clean water & toilets


Living in the Yorkshire dales I have access to clean water from taps inside my home. I also enjoy wild swimming in beautiful pools nearby and appreciate how fortunate and privileged I am compared to many...those who have to walk miles to collect dirty and bug ridden water which then makes them ill.

Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene should be a normal part of everyone’s daily life. Without all three, people can’t live dignified, healthy lives. With all three, they can unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good.With clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, children are born healthier. They get the chance to go to school and grow up to become adults. Women and men get to earn a living. Whole communities start to thrive. It sounds normal and it should be.

Therefore I am committing myself to 100 outdoor swims before my next birthday, this will average out at 2 per week with the winter months being the most challenging. So I would ask you to please donate to this worthy cause... and I'll do my best to achieve the target I have set.
