Thirst for Change actions reach over 60,000

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Thirst for Change campaign – the parishes, schools and individuals who either signed campaign cards, emailed David Cameron or displayed water droplets.

As well as parish signings and school workshops, nearly 80 people came to our Walk for Water around Hanningfield Reservoir, 15 people came along to an evening with Lemlem, a water and sanitation engineer from Ethiopia and 13 bravehearts took part in the abseil!

And finally, yester Denise and campaigner Bernie O’Callaghan joined at least 50 others to display the droplets outside Westminster Cathedral.

As the Thirst for Change campaign closed, over 60,000 actions were delivered to No 10 yesterday. The Campaign Team writes:

“From the sunrise walk at 5am at Tower Hill to the river of change celebration at Westminster cathedral and the hand in at Downing Street – where Andrew Mitchell spontaneously declared his love for CAFOD – it’s been marvellous.

Our amazing communications teams have already got the news out so you can read all about it here>>

Thank you everyone for joining us, particularly those who endured the early start and the rain, or who held ribbons full of droplets in the drizzle!”

A new campaign will be launching in the Autumn.
