evian UK x Wimbledon — Thank You Key Workers


As Wimbledon's official water partner, the unexpected cancellation of The Championships during the pandemic left Evian to reassess its positioning amid global uncertainty. In response, we proactively redirected the partnership to engage and support the community by honoring UK heroes battling the pandemic. A unique fresco by artist Clemence Gouy invited the British public to nominate key workers on social media, offering exclusive ticket/experience giveaways, including access to the iconic Evian VIP suite, typically reserved for global celebrities.

The campaign's overwhelming success made it one of the most engaging initiatives and led to a two-year extension, enabling Evian to fully leverage its Wimbledon partnership and contribute meaningfully during challenging times.
