What a difference a cup makes!

It’s the Karen Coombes Cup, designed by the ‘mother’ of the F.O.T.T. It couldn’t be simpler and more effective. The cup itself is transparent and has measuring units so you know exactly how much liquid it holds. The top fits neatly into the cup and has a wide rim which makes it easy for the lips to close around it. A narrow ‘cut’ allows small-ish, manageable portions of water to get out, and a hole on the opposite side makes sure that as water comes out air flows into the cup, avoiding a vacuum that would hold the water back.

It makes drinking water much much easier for Pádraig, and it takes him less time to drink, too.

Its a design that proves that small details can have a big impact.
