On Sunday June 4th 2023, singers from choirs around Leicester will come together to Sing For Water! We will be performing on the main stage at the Riverside Festival in Bede Park at 2pm supported by children from Shaftesbury Junior School Steel Band and Japanese Taiko Drummers. We are hoping to raise £1,000 for WaterAid, through sponsorship for singers and collections from the crowd.
WaterAid is an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation. Only by tackling these three essentials in ways that last can people change their lives for good.
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.
