Book with us and help Just a Drop

We are proud to work with Just a Drop, who provide clean water to thousands of children and their families. Incredibly, more children die under the age of five from water pollution than anything else in the world. Just a Drop raises money to build wells, hand pumps and health and sanitation programmes in order to give children and their families’ access to clean water close to their homes.

To demonstrate our commitment to this charity, we will donate £1 for every booking on a Hayes & Jarvis holiday.

If you would like to help too, we would encourage you to do so at the time of booking, when our Travel Consultants will ask you if you would like to match us and contribute £1 per booking to this worthwhile cause.
