I’m very enthusiastic about working with FRANK Water - they build capacity, not just infrastructure. My water engineering skills can contribute to FRANK’s delivery of safe and appropriate WASH services for the people who currently lack them.

Alex met the FRANK water team when we commissioned her to draw a wall-sized map of India. Since then, Alex and her partner Paul have run the Bath Half Marathon, dressed as taps. See them in action here. Alex said "The FRANK water team were so engaging and charismatic, I immediately felt part of the team. I was honoured to be asked to help promote the work FRANK water does."

Jim has over thirty years experience working with herbs, spices and food at Bart Ingredients. He has a passion for community matters both locally and in the countries where Bart sources its ingredients. Jim has been an ambassador for FRANK Water for over five years and has taken part and organised many events. In 2016, Jim walked the full 630 miles along the South West Coast Path. In 2107, he spent time with one of FRANK Water's partners in India's Madhya Pradesh where he visited three villages that have benefitted from safe water and sanitation.
I'm a water engineer, and believe clean water and sanitation is something that should be available to everyone. I've been involved with FRANK Water for several years with Refill at festivals, and been fortunate enough to see some of their projects in India first-hand. I am excited to be inspiring more people to support their work as a FRANK Water ambassador!
