Olympic trampolinist Kat Driscoll backs water-saving campaign
Washington residents are being asked to make and Olympic effort to save water by making every drop count.
Olympian Kat Driscoll took advantage of a free water-saving visit as part of Northumbrian Water’s Every Drop Counts campaign and hopes others will follow in her footsteps.
The trampoline gymnast, who trains in Washington, signed up for the visit because she wants to leave an environmental legacy for future generations.
She was given lots of advice and free water-saving products so that she can start to make a difference.
The Every Drop Counts team will be working in Washington over the summer, signing up customers to receive a free visit, where a qualified technician will look at the uses of water in the home and advise on improvements that can be made to help save water. They will also check and fix leaking taps and toilets, where possible.
People who sign up can receive water saving products from water butts to more efficient shower heads, worth up to £130, free.
