The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) President's Challenge
As so many walks of life are adapting to Covid so fundraising platforms have adapted new and clever ways for fundraisers. Julie Barratt the newly appointed President of the CIEH has initiated the CIEH President’s Challenge - a virtual walk (or run), hosted by End to End, around the 630-mile South West Coast Path - a new fundraising event that everyone can join and do from their homes.
The team's 32 members are nearly half way through their 12 month challenge of each walking (virtually) the 630 mile SW Coastline. Already they have raised an amazing £3,000! Please note that with Virgin Money Giving closing at the end of the month, they have set up a new fundraising page.
In 20 years Water for Kids has transformed the lives of over 390,000 people. We have provided water, sanitation and hygiene education to 154 communities in nine countries.

Help someone to get safe drinking water for the first time and make a dream come true
We work closely with our partners overseas and with the local people to ensure our projects are sustainable. Projects in Uganda and Zambia are managed on behalf of Water for Kids by local environmental health professionals.
This is a working partnership between environmental health professionals in the UK and environmental health professionals in Zambia and Uganda.
We also fund projects which are managed by other organisations, which we know and trust. These organisations are encouraged to involve health professionals.
