Ete-sen Tappers,

What a beautiful day it is to share some amazing news with all of you.

GIVEMETAP ARE THE WINNERS of the VirginMoney and BeTheStart Award, winning £10k and a huge honour of being recognised by one of the world’s largest conglomerates, The Virgin Group.

The Water Guy had spent the last week putting together an amazing pitch to present to the judges via Google Hangout. You can watch the pitch here and see our winning presentation. We were up against fierce competition from an amazing group of people and ventures and so we are ecstatic that we have made it out on top!


This Award is another reminder of how GiveMeTap are growing bigger and bigger, spreading our mission to anyone and everyone. 

We would like to thank ALL OF OUR GIVEMETAPPERS for the amazing support that we have had. It is because of you guys that we are achieving success after success and that we can bring water to hundreds of people in villages across Africa. 

We love you all,

The GiveMeTap Team
