Hope Spring Water Charity a registered organization in the UK with one of its branch in Nigeria. Its main aim is to provide access to clean safe Water; Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Nigeria to poor and vulnerable people.
Herefordshire based ethical skin care company (Herbfarmacy) donated £250 to Hope Spring Water charity to support its water project in Africa, during a visit to Hope Spring Water’s office in Castle Green, Hereford, on the 27th of June 2019. Hannah Forstbrook of Herbfarmacy presented a cheque of the aforementioned amount to Hope Spring charity organisation. Accepting the cheque on behalf of the international development charity, Hope Spring longtime supporters and fundraisers Peter and Chris Dowsett thanked Herbfarmacy for their generous donation, saying that the money will help at least fifty people have access to safe, clean water in the areas the charity organisation works in.
The donation was part of Herbfarmacy’s social responsibility initiative for their successful, limited edition of bath tea and ChariTea business. Before the launch of ChariTea early this year, the company pledged to donate £2 to Hope Spring for each jar of the bath tea sold.
Speaking about Hope Spring’s partnership with Herbfarmacy that led to the donation, Hope Spring trustee Temi Odurinde said “it is refreshing to partner with a company that thinks holistically about their product. Herbfarmacy are aware that taking a bath is one of the most water intensive activities we undertake regularly in the UK. To donate part of the proceeds of a water intensive product like a bath tea, to help people struggling to access basic drinking water takes thinking out of the box to a new level”.
Hope Spring communications officer, Bolu Olorunfemi said “we are obviously delighted with Herbfarmacy’s donation. We look forward to working with partners like Herbfarmacy in the nearest future”. She added that “socially responsible companies and organisations are always welcomed to work with us, through our corporate social responsibility partnership.
