AGUK 'elephant pump' unveiled! 

Advantage Group UK have recently switched from bottle-fed water coolers to a water filtration system in our Head Office.

This has a number of benefits. 

We are helping the environment by reducing our use of plastic, as well as doing away with the need for a van to deliver the bottles of water or collect the empty bottles. 

Our relationship with AquAid has also given us 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. 

We are delighted to announce that one such pump has now been installed in Africa on our behalf and will be a much-needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many. 

To date AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia, and donated over £15 million to charity. 

We are proud to be part of this great initiative!
