Manchester Cathedral invest in water dispensers from AquAid

Manchester Cathedral invest in water dispensers from AquAid

We at Manchester Cathedral are aware that remaining hydrated will allow us to perform at our very best throughout the day. As a result, we decided to invest in a water dispensers from AquAid.

Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our organisation 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 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.
