BWCA 2018 Charity Golf Day

The BWCA is pleased to announce that as a result of its first Charity Golf Day and funds raised at their 2018 Conference, the Just a Drop charity can now start to build a 4th “BWCA” borehole in Zambia. www.justadrop.org

The Golf Day was held on Thursday 7th June with 44 golfers at The Oxfordshire golf course in the beautiful Chiltern area of England.  Funds were raised through sponsorship from Waterlogic, H20 Direct, Eden Springs UK, Office Beverages, AA First, Cascade Water Systems, Hydrate Direct, Edgar’s Water and Phillipa Clow.  The Golfers also gave generously to play the after-dinner game of “Heads & Tails”.

The BWCA launched this charity partnership with Just a Drop in March 2016 since when over £40,000 has been raised.

Just a Drop provides drinking water and sanitation to communities in developing countries.  The BWCA and its Executive Council chose to raise funds in a number of villages in Zambia situated near each other.  The projects have provided clean drinking water to villages whose inhabitants had no access to clean safe water, resulting in waterborne disease striking every week.
