This week isn’t just the start of September, or the start of the new term it is also World Water Week, a week dedicated to raising money to help the 768 million people who are still without clean safe water. To help raise awareness and support, D&D restaurant Coq d’Argent have teamed up with ethical water company, Belu (who give 100% of profits to Water Aid) and Water Aid to create the first World Water Week Summer Sculpture Competition and last night was the launch party.
The Handbook headed over to the City and caught the lift up to the terrace at Coq d’ Argent. We drank watermelon cocktails, and nibbled on mini fish and chips and adorable little puddings and of course admired the winning sculpture. Using over 1000 recycled Belu bottles, and 5kms of ribbon Emerald Mosely and Christina Ballard have created a stunning sculpture which now stands proudly at the entrance of the restaurant.
To help the efforts of Water Aid and World Water Week Coq d’Argent will also be donating a £1 towards the cause for every bottle of Belu Water sold, which is the perfect excuse to visit Coq d’ Argent this week and help a wonderful charity.
