Walk for Water 2020

Trek up UK's highest Mountain with #TeamOrange on bank holiday weekend, Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th August, and help build a water well.

For millions of people around the world, getting clean water isn’t just a case of turning on the tap. You can provide reliable access to clean water by building a well with our 'Walk for Water' challenge.

Places are limited so sign up now! Please note, you will need to register below and then pay your deposit at the bottom of the page to secure your place.

Download our info pack which has everything you need to know about the trek.

Registration: £35/£85     Min Sponsorship: £300


Over 100 fundraisers joined our 2018 trek raising more than £50,000, funding the construction of 150 wells. Watch our highlight video to find out more!

Don't delay, register today. Invite your friends & family to join you. Everyone is welcome!images

To take part you will need to pay a registration fee and commit to raising a further £300 before the day. This will build a well in your name or in the name of a loved one. Once you've raised the full amount, we'll commission a well and you'll receive a feedback report from us, which will include pictures of your newly constructed water well.

With your help, we can bring clean water to rural communities, giving them safe water for drinking, cooking and cleaning, water for their crops and animals and the chance to break out of the poverty cycle. There’s no limit on fundraising, raise more and we can build more wells for you and reach more people in need. Raising £600 will build you two wells, £900 will fund the construction of three wells whilst raising £1500 could build five wells, helping five entire communities. How many wells will you aim for?

Travel and Accommodation

We will be travelling down on Saturday and stay overnight in a hostel, with transport available from the major UK cities. Transport will also be available from Glasgow on Sunday morning. See information pack for further details.

Registration fee

Saturday and Sunday: £85 – includes transport, accomodation, breakfast & dinner

Sunday only: £35 – includes transport from Glasgow, if required

PLEASE NOTE: We will be starting the trek very early on Sunday morning. We strongly recommend you stay overnight unless you are taking the transport from Glasgow, or live close by and are confident that you can reach the meeting point in time.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said:

“The best charity is giving water to drink”


What your Well can do

Reliable access to safe, clean water means that drinking, cooking, washing, watering crops and animals and making wudu no longer pose a risk of illness. This allows those less fortunate a chance to break free from poverty and transform their lives for years to come.

Once we've received the full payment for your wells, we can then start to assess the best place for it to be built in your chosen country, with your chosen plaque details.

We use a stringent third-party selection process to ensure only the most needy benefit and the whole process from start to finish after payment is an estimated 9 to 12 months.

When your well has been built and functional, we’ll send you an individual feedback report so you can see it in action and find out about the people whose lives you've changed.

Your  feedback report contains:

  • Information on the village where your well is located
  • Information about the community who have benefited
  • A message from the grateful community
  • Pictures of the construction and the finished well in use
  • A framed picture to share with friends and family
