This is the time of year when people like to entertain so it was with some interest that I noted a campaign by one of my favourite charities Water Aid. Suss out http://www.wateraid.org/uk/get_involved/events/taste_for_life/default.asp.
The idea is simple, invite some friends around, show off your hospitality skills and cooking prowess and invite them to make a contribution for the food to Water Aid. One of them could reciprocate the week after and who knows you could be in for some smashing grub and great outings all summer.
Best of all the ultimate beneficiaries of this are some of the poorest and most disadvantaged in the world. Water Aid is one of those charities that concentrates on doing what it does best, providing potable water and sanitation to people who don’t have it.
