Charity & the Community
Water Coolers Direct is active in the community and is keen to support charities both locally and across the UK and have done so in a variety of ways over the last 7 years.

A closer look
Men's Walk 2012: The Cotswold Care Hospice
Our latest charity work sees us donating over 1,000 bottles of water to the Men's Walk 2012. The walk takes place in and around Gloucester and involves more than 500 men taking part in a sponsored walk through the city before heading back to Gloucester Rugby Club for a pie and a pint whilst watching the Gloucester Vs Harlequins match.
Cotswold Care Hospice provides the most modern palliative care facilities in Gloucestershire, supporting patients, families and carers.
The Pied Piper Appeal
Peter Glanville, WaterCoolersDirect's Operations Director has been on the board for the Gloucester based charity The Pied Piper appeal for the last 12 months and has a close relationship with the charity that helps sick children in Gloucestershire.
As a company, we have supported Peter in all of his fundraising efforts and we are proud that he has so far contributed over £17,000 to the charity.
Coolers for Schools
WaterCoolersDirect is always keen to provide schools with free water coolers. It is part of our initiative to hydrate school children as it is now commonly known that children who drink plenty of water have improved concentration levels and ability to learn.
If you want to enquire about a free water cooler for your school then please contact our friendly sales team on 0800 7311 491.
Donations to FRANK
We have donated over £7,400 to FRANK water, the majority of which has helped to provide a clean water facility for over 6,000 people in the village of Pedatummedi in Andhra Pradesh, India.
Katie Harrison, Founder of FRANK water projects said, “With the help of WaterCoolersDirect we have saved lives by installing the clean water projects”.
Donations to Oxfam
WaterCoolersDirect is proud to have donated around £7,400 for Oxfam to supply 4,000 people with safe water every day. The donation has bought 495,000 litre tanks which are for use in emergency situations when people have been forced to leave their homes. Each tank supplies 1,000 people a day with safe water.
