Yorkshire Water employee recognised after raising £400,000 for WaterAid

Yorkshire Water’s Helen Dibb had a night to remember as she was presented with the WaterAid President’s Award after helping to raise a staggering £400,000 for the charity over the past decade.

At the WaterAid Annual Supporters meeting in London, Helen was recognised for her long-term efforts running the Yorkshire Water lottery which raises £40,000 each year.

Tim Wainwright, CE of WaterAid said: “I was absolutely delighted to present Helen Dibb with our President’s Award. For more than a decade, Helen has championed WaterAid’s life-saving work, influencing others to support us and promoting the Yorkshire Water Lottery which raises £40,000 for us each year. She is an inspiring woman of great dedication and commitment.

“On behalf of all at WaterAid, I’d like to warmly thank her for her ongoing passion, helping us as we work towards our shared vision of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene for everyone, everywhere.”

Helen, who works in the Continuous Improvement team at Yorkshire Water, said: “I was really surprised when I received the letter from WaterAid about the award and it was lovely to attend the Annual Supporters Meeting to see all the great work WaterAid do and receive the recognition. I would also like to thank my colleagues as it is a real team effort!”
