Culligan UK and Make-A-Wish: A Partnership Making Dreams Come True

June 23, 2023

At Culligan UK, we believe in the power of clean water and the difference it can make in people’s lives. Our commitment to improving the quality of lives extends beyond providing exceptional hydration solutions; it encompasses supporting the communities we serve.

That’s why we are thrilled to share the incredible journey of our nine-year partnership with Make-A-Wish, a renowned charity dedicated to granting the wishes of children with critical life-threatening or life-altering illnesses.

Our Employees: Dedicated Volunteers

When it comes to making dreams come true, our team at Culligan UK is more than willing to lend a helping hand. Our employees have shown remarkable dedication by volunteering their time and energy to support Make-A-Wish. Through various fundraising events and initiatives, we have successfully raised over £500,000, fulfilling more than 200 wishes!

Chris Vass, our Marketing Operations Analyst and keen Make-A-Wish volunteer says about the partnership;

“The relationship between our business and Make-A-Wish holds significant importance to me, and it’s a source of great pride. I’ve had the opportunity to support this remarkable charity twice during my time here. The first occasion was a skydive, which remains the scariest thing I’ve ever done. The second involved me being a helper at the Disney Wish, where I had the privilege of meeting the children and families supported by the charity. It was an incredibly moving experience.

Being there, and witnessing the children’s wishes come true had a profound impact on me. It was an unforgettable moment, and I genuinely hope that as a business, we can continue to contribute to the charity and help create more magical moments like the ones I was honoured to witness.”

Our Loyalty Scheme: A Difference Maker

We firmly believe that small contributions can make a significant impact when combined. With this belief in mind, Culligan UK has created a unique loyalty scheme allowing our customers to participate in the Make-A-Wish mission. For every water bottle sold, we donate 2p, and for every new water cooler rental, we donate £1. This ongoing initiative has not only raised funds but has also raised awareness about the incredible work done by Make-A-Wish.

A Story of Determination

In an inspiring display of determination and philanthropy, Culligan UK’s Sales Director, Matt Hemming, has embarked on a personal mission to raise funds for a our charity partner. With an initial fundraising target of £3,000, Matt has fearlessly taken on a series of exhilarating activities, with the recent completion of the prestigious London Marathon being a noteworthy highlight.

Matt’s commitment to making a difference in the lives of others has struck a chord with supporters far and wide. Thanks to the unwavering generosity and encouragement of family, friends, colleagues, and even strangers, his fundraising efforts have already soared past the initial target, surpassing an impressive milestone of £4,000 and counting.

Undertaking the London Marathon, a grueling 26.2-mile test of physical and mental endurance, Matt demonstrated his indomitable spirit and unwavering dedication to his cause. Crossing the finish line amidst cheers and applause, he not only achieved a personal triumph but also inspired those around him to rally behind his noble endeavour.
