This week, WaterAid has launched a prize draw to win tickets for the live Bathroom Session gig, which will bring together some exciting acts, including former X-Factor winner Louisa Johnson, rapper and songwriter Nadia Rose, Australian contemporary R&B artist Celina Sharma, and Londoner Cat Burns, whose music spans folk, acoustic, soul, reggae and pop genres.
Also performing are South London singer songwriter Jaz Karis and DJs Kennedy Taylor from Foundation FM and Mercedes Benson.
Each of the 25 prize winners will get two tickets to see the Bathroom Sessions at Protein Studios in east London on 8 March 2022 from 19:00 until 23:00. The music event, which will be performed on a bathroom-themed set, is being organised in partnership with Clash magazine and will be also available to view online for free.
Just ahead of the fabulous night of music will be a discussion panel chaired by Stylist Editor-in-Chief Lisa Smosarski, who will be leading a conversation about tackling gender inequality and the role clean water and decent sanitation plays.
One in ten people globally have no clean water at home, with the burden of collecting water mainly falling to women and girls, meaning they have less time to work or study. A third of schools have no clean water or decent sanitation, affecting children’s health and education, especially among girls who often skip school when on their period if there are no toilet facilities or drop out altogether when they reach puberty.
Through its Thirst for Knowledge appeal, WaterAid will help improve girls’ education through improving access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene in homes and schools across the world.
By donating to WaterAid when entering the prize draw, people will be helping transform the lives of women and girls. Public donations made by 15 February 2022 will be matched by the UK government, up to £2 million, making double the impact in communities in Nepal and enabling girls to thrive.
Members of the public can also join the draw for free by post. Find out more about the prize draw and ways to donate at www.wateraid.org/bs.
