Fundraise for WaterAid

There are a number of ways in which you can support WaterAid.

Whether you are interested in taking part in a fundraising event, becoming a local volunteer speaker or creating your own WaterAid group, it's easy.

As I have been volunteering for WaterAid once a week for the last few months, I would like to take this opportunity to share some of the great work WaterAid does.

Working with communities across 17 countries, it stresses the importance of giving local people the skills and resources needed rather than sending people from here to do the job for them.

This means that in the long run, these projects are sustainable and the people can keep them going.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer speaker, then you can contact WaterAid via the website wateraid.org.uk.

WaterAid works with a variety of community groups who are extremely supportive. Groups range from youth groups, churches and rotary clubs.

There are a number of fun ways in which groups can get together and raise funds for WaterAid but at the same time, doing something they enjoy.

WaterAid also have many events throughout the year including Sing for Water. If you are part of a choir or singing group, you can join this campaign which takes place once a year at the Thames Festival in London.

So there are many easy and fun ways to raise money for WaterAid which you can do with friends, family or members of your community.

Take a look at wateraid.org.uk for plenty more information.
