Image of Indonesia tsunami survivor

You’ve probably heard about last week’s devastating earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia. More than 1,300 people have died and hundreds of thousands of survivors are now in urgent need of help.

We’re supporting a new appeal by our partners at the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) so they can provide food, clean water, first aid and shelter for those affected. You can read more about it on their website.

We’re also working closely with The One Foundation to direct some of the funds generated through the sales of our own brand water to help survivors.

To donate:

  • Text ‘GIFT’ to 70000 to give £5 (texts are free but donations will be added to the bill and must have bill payer’s permission).
  • Or to donate any other amount, go to their website

Please share these details, and give whatever you can.

More information will be shared with Food colleagues next week on how to support in store.

If you want to fundraise for this appeal, please contact
