Creed Foodservice is working with water supplier Thirsty Planet to raise funds for Pump Aid in Africa.
Thirsty Planet has raised a total of pound;1.4m for Pump Aid since March 2007 and has been funding the hardware, building and maintenance of thousands of pumps across the continent.
Creed Foodservice has been supporting Thirsty Planet water with the aim to raise enough money to build a new pump for a community in Malawi. Every case of Thirsty Planet water that Creed sells guarantees 50p to the charity.
By working with the supplier, Creed Foodservice customers are two thirds of the way to helping fund their first water pump.
Chris Creed, managing director of Creed Foodservice, said: “Thirsty Planet is doing great work with Pump Aid and we’re pleased we can help such a good cause. Our customers have been really supportive of this initiative and we can’t wait to reach our first target.”
