WaterAid is an international charity. Our mission is to overcome poverty by enabling the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education. For a gift of just £15 WaterAid can enable one person in Africa or Asia access to these basic services.
The Connection At St Martin-in-the-Fields
The Connection at St Martin’s provides an integrated package of services which help people to cope with the physical crisis of being homeless, and address the underlying issues which may have caused the homelessness and/or arisen from it. We aim to help people rebuild their lives and move as far as possible towards independence. Our services include: Street outreach Day centre services - one for young people 16-25 and one for over 26’s. A night centre Specialist advice and counselling services Employment and training programme Resettlement support A 16-bed supported housing scheme We have a proven track record in making a real difference to the lives of homeless people and in reducing the numbers of people sleeping rough. We also now have a renovated and vastly improved building to support us in our work and to inspire our users to engage and change. Our unique organisational identity is based on our unswerving commitment to helping homeless people to find their own solutions, resolve their problems and achieve their potential. This is complemented by the combination of our excellent location in central London, our accessibility, our user-led approach, our experienced pool of multi-disciplinary staff and volunteers and our creativity and dedication in helping homeless people to move on in their lives and find routes away from the streets

I am going to be playing all 32 of Beethoven’s piano sonatas from memory in an all-day music marathon charity event on 15th October at St Martin in the Fields.

All the money raised will be divided between international charity WaterAid and the The Connection (St Martin in the Field's charity).

WaterAid is an international non governmental organisation focused exclusively on improving access to safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation in some of the world’s poorest communities. WaterAid works in Africa, Asia and the Pacific region and campaigns globally to realise our vision of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation. .
