The Wight kind of help

Two British Water Cooler Association (BWCA) members are taking their social responsibility seriously following the  launch of the BWCA’s 5 for 5 Sustainability Pledge earlier this year.

The aim of the Pledge is to encourage members in work that benefits the community and  now Waterlogic UK and Wight Crystal are leading by example.

Wight Crystal is a water cooler company based on the Isle of Wight and exists to generate funds for its parent company, Osel Enterprises, a charity providing care and support for local people with learning and physical disabilities.

In a partnership that will raise money for the Way Forward Programme run by Osel Enterprises, Wight Crystal asked Waterlogic UK for advice on how to maintain and improve their 30-year-old bottling plant.

Waterlogic, which owns a modern bottling facility, Fillongley Spring Water donated a washing and cleaning machine to the team at Wight Crystal to help the local enterprise keep up with the growing demand for its products.

The project was overseen by projects director of Waterlogic Chris Routledge pictured with Wight Crystal’s CEO Tracey Hill). He said: “This is a great charity that provides much needed support for people with learning and physical disabilities on the island and we look forward to developing and strengthening our relationship with Osel Enterprises over the coming years.”

John Dundon managing director of Waterlogic UK said: “We were delighted to be able to help Tracey and her team to satisfy the increasing demand for water from her customers on the island and thereby help to support The Way Forward Programme. This is a fantastic charity project on the Isle of Wight”.
