Danni Lee, 28, from Gosport, has started a campaign called Stay Hydrated Gosport – and has already been out and about dropping off cold drinks to outdoor workers.

As someone who is always driving around working for Doggie Holiday Homes, Danni said she often rushes out and forgets her drink. 

She’s now aiming to give something back to workers who are outdoors in all weathers in a bid to stave off dehydration.

Mum-of-one Danni said: ‘When I give the drinks out, people are really surprised and grateful.

‘It’s not for money, you never know what people are going through in their day and it’s just so they’ve got someone to look out for them.’

Keeping followers updated on the campaign’s Facebook group, Danni urges people to let her know of anyone that may need cheering up, or who may have forgotten their drink or are just working really hard outdoors.

If the campaign is successful, Danni already has big plans to branch out to helping schools and care homes cope with the warm weather.

Danni said: ‘If it did work well this year then next year we could do ice lollies to schools.

‘Also I have another idea for ice lolly donations to give to local care homes. If I get enough I would love to hand some out to some homes locally.’
