“I am delighted to be the patron of The Hydration Foundation. I fully support its mission to distribute free Hydrants to as many elderly or vulnerable beneficiaries as possible. The ability to drink unassisted whenever you want has significant health and social benefits - preventing dehydration and all its related health issues, whilst restoring independence and dignity. I think the Hydrant is a fantastic invention”
