  • How to master H2Only

    Does the thought of giving up tea, coffee, wine, beer and soft drinks for 10 whole days bring you out in a sweat?

    Here are five tried-and-tested tips to make your H2Only challenge easier.

    Quit your coffee habit
  • Looking for something less strenuous?

    You don’t have to jump out of a plane, run a marathon or forgo your favourite tipple to raise money for our lifesaving service.

    From quiz nights to coffee mornings, there are plenty of other events you can get involved in.
