I have recently been asked to help research and apply for grants to help with the running and development costs of the club. Not being a registered charity, we are excluded from many grant opportunities and competition for the remaining funds is tough. That said, we have identified about half a dozen to apply for, fingers crossed. If anyone has any suggestions for funds we could try please email me.
There is however one simple fundraising opportunity we are not fully exploiting – easyfundraising.org.uk. If you buy online from a retailer who is signed up to this (easyfundraising.org.uk), the club gets between 1% and 3% cashback. We probably all prefer shopping locally when we can but if and when you do go online for some of your Christmas gifts , please consider joining before you start – if you use this link there is the potential to earn a further £5 bonus for club.
