Free charity places with WaterAid at selected swims

Around 771 million people worldwide don’t have access to clean water near their homes. They need to waste hours each day collecting water that in many cases isn’t even safe. WaterAid is working to change that – and needs your support.

Bringing clean water to a community is transformational: children can stay longer in school, people have more time for productive work and families can lift themselves out of poverty. So this year, why not swim for WaterAid and give the gift of clean water?
