Fundraising

Currently Under Construction, however some highlights!

Introduction

The art of good sustainable fundraising is to achieve it whilst having a good time (so it is almost unnoticed!) and that it strikes a balance giving lots of opportunities through the hard work of the club volunteers, for those outside of the club to put ‘their hands in their pockets’. If we continually ask the same club members to contribute financially, we might as well just ask for cash donations!

So many fundraising activities will have a dual purpose but often offer a good opportunity to raise funds. Some of the pure social events may make a profit but the focus is slightly different, likewise some of the following will have a strong social focus, a strong tournament focus etc.

Some of the events are aimed at raising funds purely for external charities, some sharing proceeds with external charities but all have club social and team building benefits!

14th April – Annual Sponsored Swim (Swimarathon in conjunction with the Round Table)
