WaterAid has committed and dedicated fundraising committees in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia who generously volunteer their time, energy, expertise and skills organising regular events across Australia to raise considerable funds for WaterAid – and increase the profile of our work.

In 2014, the various volunteer committees raised in excess of $750,000 for WaterAid and 2015 is set to be even bigger. This money enables WaterAid to plan future programmes to help more remote communities gain access to water and sanitation in Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea, Cambodia and the Solomon Islands.

Committee events include:

Gala balls, golf days, trivia nights, lawn bowls, film nights and much more!

The recently formed Tasmanian WaterAid Committee are holding our first fundraising events! Simultaneous Comedy Shows in Launceston and Hobart will be held on the evening of Saturday 19th November (World Toilet Day). Entrance is only $20 and will provide enormous benefit to the people of the world who do not have access to clean water and sanitation.

GHD have generously sponsored the Hobart show and Zinfra and Tas Water have stepped up to jointly sponsor the Launceston show.

Every minute, every day, people suffer and lives are lost needlessly because of a lack of safe water and sanitation. Help us end this global crisis and transform lives.

Safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation transform lives. When children’s health improves, they are able to attend school. When women are freed from the burden of water collection, they have more time to work to earn an income and grow food. Families are able to take their first steps out of poverty.

So why not get together with a few mates and make a tangible difference to someone's life whilst having a great night out?

See the posters below for further information on both shows.
