Sutton and East Surrey Water and education Sutton and East Surrey Water runs a school education programme, which highlights the importance of a safe and reliable water supply to maintaining good health. In one session children are encouraged to think about the difficulties of life without access to safe water by exploring the lives of the people WaterAid supports.

Staff members support WaterAid through various fundraising activities including the WaterAid Mountain Challenge, a wine tasting evening, and the WaterAid lottery. In September 2014 Sutton and East Surrey Water teamed up with Portsmouth Water and Bournemouth Water to host a cross-company Race Day at Goodwood Races. The event was a huge success raising more than £8,000.
