How to send sponsorship in 

If you've set up a fundraising webpage, the monies donated on-line should be transferred to WaterAid automatically. However, if you've raised money off-line, here is how to get it sent to us: 

It is more efficient and cost effective for us to process sponsorship in batches, which saves funds that can instead be used to help some of the world's poorest people gain access to safe water and sanitation. We therefore ask that you collect as much sponsorship as possible before sending it to:

The Events team
WaterAid
47- 49 Durham Street
London SE11 5JD

Please remember to include the following information when sending in your sponsorship:
  • Your name 
  • What the sponsorship is for  
  • Sponsor form with names/addresses of the sponsors and whether they would like to apply Gift Aid 
We strongly recommend that you send your sponsorship via recorded delivery so that you can track and hopefully retrieve your envelope if it goes missing. Sponsorship does go missing in the post from time to time, and it's hugely disappointing for both runners and the charity, so recorded delivery is always worth the extra effort.
