Save water and support charities
By signing up to GetWaterFit you can earn virtual coins which you can then allocate to any of our four partner charities. Every four months, United Utilities will donate £4,000 to its partner charities in line with the same proportions of coins allocated by all users of the GetWaterFit app during the previous four month period.
Please note that the virtual coins that users can earn on the GetWaterFit app do not represent any monetary value and can only be used to inform United Utilities of how you would like us to apportion our regular donations to our charity partners. United Utilities reserves the right, at is sole discretion and at any time, to (i) change or modify how the virtual coins can be used; (ii) change or modify the quantity or frequency of its donations to its charity partners; and/or (iii) cancel its regular donations. Users can allocate their virtual coins, and find information on the donations already made by United Utilities at the bottom of the page.
Here are the charities you can support when saving water through GetWaterFit
We’re putting water at the heart of nature’s recovery in the North West, improving the health of our water systems, protecting and enhancing our great countryside, boosting biodiversity and conservation and tackling our biggest climate and environmental challenges. To help tackle pollution, flooding and water abstraction, and boost the health and resilience of our water systems, we’ve established a partnership with The Rivers Trust. Show your support for the Rivers Trust by donating your coins to help protect and preserve the North West Water ways.
Our innovative partnership with the RSPB aims to harness the power of nature to tackle climate change in some of our most iconic landscapes. This ranges from restoring the wider natural processes that support life e.g. grazing, flooding, woodland regeneration and working to protect endangered species, and helping nature flourish on a large scale, ultimately mitigating the worst effects of climate change. Show your support for the RSPB by donating your coins to help protect and preserve biodiversity and give nature a home.
We’re proud to be charity partners with Macmillan Cancer Support in the North West, supporting those living with and affected by cancer. Macmillan gives people with cancer everything it has. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are Macmillan’s worries, and Macmillan moves mountains to help you live life as fully as you can. Macmillan does whatever it takes. But without your support, it can’t help everyone who needs it. You can show your support for Macmillan by donating your coins, helping to fund vital support in your region.
Two million tonnes of good-to-eat food is wasted across the food industry in the UK every year. At the same time, an estimated 8 million people are struggling to afford to eat. FareShare’s work addresses these two issues by redistributing food industry surplus, which would otherwise go to waste, to the people who need it most via a UK-wide network of nearly 11,000 frontline charities. You can change lives by helping communities and families across the North West by donating your coins to FareShare.
