FAQs

  • What is H2Only?A 10-day challenge to drink nothing but water, to raise money for the RNLI.
  • When does it start finish? Say goodbye to your favourite drinks on 13 September at 5pm and be reunited with them again on 23 September at 5pm (just in time to party).
  • Can I drink sparkling water?If it’s sparkling, it’s not H2Only. So that’s a ‘no’ to fizz, I’m afraid.
  • Can I drink squash/cordial?Flavour? Oh no. Water only if you want to be a true H2Only.
  • Can I eat food?Yes of course you can. You must! Just make sure your drinks are strictly water.
  • Can I eat soup? How about cuppa soup?Tricky one. If it’s food, it OK with us. So if you eat it with a spoon, yes. If you drink it from a cup, no.
  • Can I have milk on my cereal?As long as you’re eating it. No tipping the bowl for a slurp. It’s spoons only, for our H2Onlies.
  • Can I add things like mint, lemon or strawberries to my water to flavour it?Sounds like cheating to us. If you’re drinking it, it has to be pure, unadulterated water.
  • Can I chew coffee beans?Well this falls into the ‘eating’ category. So technically, yes. But we wouldn’t recommend it.
  • Can I cheat? Yes, you shall go to the ball/wedding/party. Grab a lifeline for 24 hours and it’ll cost you a donation of £12 to our lifeline pot at JustGiving.
  • Where does the money go?It helps the RNLI’s amazing lifeboat crews, lifeguards and volunteers to save lives at sea.
