Austin Hughes Charity - Children all ages and adult using their Elephant Pump

Water Coolers for Charity

Here, at Austin Hughes, we are aware that keeping our team hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day.

As a result, we decided to purchase water coolers from AquAid for our EMEA office.

Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company 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 organisation’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding a photo and a letter of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
