We continue to support many charities throughout each year, taking part in the Macmillan Big Coffee Morning annually, raising money through a cake sale, as well as recent donations and raising awareness for Billingshurst Lions, Help for Hero’s, Breast Cancer Awareness and the Poppy Appeal.
We at Loxwood Medical Practice are aware that keeping our staff members hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day. As a result, we decided to invest in watercoolers from AquAid.
Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our Practice the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
Our Practice’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
To date AquAid have built over 5,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia; and have donated in excess of £10 million to charity.
