Our community programme supports environmental projects and voluntary/charitable organisations to make a real difference within our community.
The charity works with partners and influences decision-makers to maximise its impact. WaterAid’s vision is of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation.
Find out more about WaterAid
We have been an active supporter of WaterAid over the years. Through the support of our employees, customers, and partners we raise vital funds for WaterAid’s work, and each year donate funds raised through our annual Ricky Road Run held in Rickmansworth to WaterAid projects overseas.
We are also proud to be involved with the Customer Campaign since 1993, where customers recruited through the campaign have raised a cumulative total income of £6,105,028. This has enabled over 407,000 people to gain access to clean water.
We're so used to having taps and toilets in the UK, it's easy to take them for granted. But do you ever wonder how they came about – or what life would be like without them?
Hannah Battram, our Environment and Education Co-ordinator in association with WaterAid's Big History Project has created this short video, click below to learn what our habits like earlier in history using water in the home and how far we have come.
We would like to say a big thank you to our customers who have supported WaterAid over the years and below is a thank from WaterAid
Everyday Affinity Water works hard to maintain the quality of our drinking water for our 3.6 million customers; we are pleased to extend this vision through our partner WaterAid to help provide safe, clean water to some of the world’s poorest people.
KitAid is a charity set up by, Derrick Williams MBE, who visited Tanzania on a WaterAid supporters' trip in 1998. Derrick, being a mad footie fan, was amazed at the reception he received from children and adults in remote villages just because he wearing his favourite football shirt .
After two weeks in Tanzania, a flame was lit in Derrick's heart and he was on a mission to provide kit and equipment to the bare-footed children playing with footballs made of tied string and plastic bags. Fifteen years on, KitAid has sent out nearly 500,000 kits to children and adults in 40 different countries across the world.

Thanks to the funds donated by the event's sponsors and by sponsorships collected by our individual runners, we raise a huge amount for charity.
Announcements of the race date and entry forms will be available in the summer.
Each year Affinity Water employees organise this race to raise money for 3 charities with Water Aid and Kit Aid as permanent beneficiaries and a third chosen every year from a locally based worthwhile cause;
Supporting the race each year are our generous sponsors, without whom we would not be able to bring you the Ricky Road Run. Their continued support is essential for the good work that WaterAid, KitAid and our nominated charity undertake.
If you don’t think you could run it, but would love to help out we still need you. Marshalls are a vital part to the race; if you think you could help out, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
