Event information

Sing for Water presents unforgettable community-based concerts with hundreds of singers from choirs across the country, which have so far raised over £1 million for WaterAid.

As part of Sing for Water, singers and choirs learn music and songs separately and then come together for one big performance. In recent years there have been concerts all around the country, so keep an eye out for one near you.


Our 2020 events are yet to be announced, but watch this space!

Raising money

Each singer commits to raising a certain amount of money as part of the event, and all the funds currently go towards our vital projects in Malawi, reaching some of the world’s poorest communities with safe water, taps and toilets. To date, Sing for Water events have raised over £1 million for WaterAid's work.

"When Sing for Water first started, our dream was to raise £1,000. Over the last 15 years, you’ve turned that into over £1 million for projects in Burkina Faso, Malawi, Ghana, India, Timor-Leste, Ethiopia and Rwanda. It’s wonderful that so many choirs, festivals and individuals are now involved with Sing for Water."
Co-Founder Helen Chadwick
