Northumbrian Water’s bottled tap water scheme helps many local organisations and charities that need access to clean, clear and great tasting refreshment at their events.

Northumbrian Water Group has given away a massive 500,000 litres or 6,250 baths over ten years.

Sarah Pinkerton, partnerships manager for Northumbrian Water, said: “The donation of bottled tap water is always incredibly popular and I would encourage any organisation or charity thinking of applying to our scheme, to make sure that their application is in as soon as possible.”

“This is one of many ways that we strive to support our local communities. It is our commitment in this area that has helped us be recognised once again as one of the world’s most ethical companies by the Ethisphere Institute; the only water company in the world to be included on this prestigious list.”

Each year it tries to support as many events as possible in the north east. During 2015, bottled tap water was donated to 113 organisations.
