More than £200 was raised for Northumbrian Water’s international adopted charity, WaterAid, at the recent Eagles v Sheffield Sharks basketball match. Eagles coach, Fab Flournoy, helped to encourage fans to support the life saving charity by riding the water company’s ‘toilet bike’!

WaterAid provides clean, safe water, effective sanitation and hygiene education in 17 countries in Africa and Asia – things that we take for granted in the North East. Fab grew up in a very poor area of New York and understands what it is like to live in poverty.

Northumbrian Water appreciates his support of WaterAid which gives children hope and a future – funds raised on the night will save 14 lives.
