World Water Day

POSTED 10/04/2016 - By RW

International World Water Day started in 1993 by the UN is held annually on 22nd March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and for promoting the sustainable management of freshwater resources. World Water Day is an international day and is seen as an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference. Thatís why its so important to us here at Angel.

We work with a number of humanitarian charities including WaterAid for who this day is a chance to communicate further the important work that they do. This year Wateraid have asked people around the globe to help turn the world blue for a day. They want to raise awareness about the water crisis, and make sure everyone has access to clean, safe water by 2030.

Well that was a challenge our fundraising teams couldnít resist!! Today for one day only we turned BLUE!! There has been a fun filled atmosphere throughout the day at both our Par and Plymouth centers and just a little bit of blue competition with some great blue effort being made.  It really is a great chance to have a little fun without anyone loosing site of the importance of the message. We work hard fundraising every day on behalf of Wateraid and to know we were part of World Water Day and to have taken part in Blue4Water reminds us all why we do this job!
