Sponsorship through JustGiving
This is an attractive, trendy and easy way of collecting sponsorship, particularly from people far away. Donors can be anywhere in the world. Just give them the web address of your page on JustGiving. Exploit your cyber-network!
Your fundraising page means people can donate before the event, and it's easy for you see how much you have raised through JustGiving's website.
A word of caution
Please don't record any donations collected through JustGiving on the Sponsors List form, discussed on the left of this page. Gift Aid on donations collected through JustGiving will be claimed by JustGiving and passed to WaterAid.
Your JustGiving page shows you who has made donations. Please get all your sponsorship paid in by 15 June 2020.
