Last weekend we had the privilege of playing at the New Dock Hall in Leeds for the fantastic charity WaterAid.

Wateraid are part of an active global network and work hard getting water, toilets and hygiene to the millions of people still living without these basic human rights.

While one billion people have escaped extreme poverty in the last 20 years, at least 10% of the world’s population still live without safe water to drink and one in three people live without a decent toilet. As a result, 500,000 children die every year. This wholly unacceptable situation causes untold suffering, holding back human and sustainable development. It particularly affects the lives of women, who carry the burden of collecting water and caring for sick children, and the lives of girls who often fail to finish their education because of a lack of toilets in schools.

We had an absolutely fantastic time and we would like to thank the folks at Yorkshire Water for having us on board at this great event. Lots of money was raised for a great charity with a fantastic cause.
