Solus Decor are collaborating with Water Aid UK at Chelsea Flower Show
We are always keen to give something back and collaborate with charities within our work. We have worked with a number of charities back in Canada but we have yet to create a link with a UK charity. Given our involvement with water features we were keen to get in involved with a clean water charity that provides a basic resource to developing countries that is so readily available to us in the UK. Water Aid seemed the perfect collaboration and we are thrilled to be raising funds for such an important cause at Chelsea Flower Show this year.
What does Water Aid do?
Clean drinking water, proper toilets and good hygiene are essential, yet millions of people around the world don’t have access to these basic services. Across the world, women are forced to waste precious time walking long distances to collect dirty water. Girls are dropping out of school because there are no private toilets, and young children are not surviving to see their fifth birthday because of preventable diseases.
Water Aid’s whole approach is about getting safe water, sanitation and hygiene to everyone everywhere by 2030 . They tackle the reasons why millions of the world’s poorest people live without these most basic human services. With hundreds of partners in civil society, government and the private sector, they deliver water, sanitation and hygiene to those most in need and make transformational change happen so that governments across the world provide all of their citizens with affordable, sustainable services.
What we’re doing?
Last year at Chelsea Flower Show many people were keen to buy our candle holders, which are given to clients as a sample guide showing colour and texture when selecting their water feature. It seemed appropriate that this year we “sell” these to visitors to Chelsea Flower Show with all proceeds going straight to Water Aid.
If you’re at Chelsea this year be sure to visit Solus in the Fresh Gardens at trade stand FR64 and make your donation.
