We are excited to announce the CoCSC Crowd Funder campaign - help us raise £10,000.
We really appreciate all the support you have given us over the past year. We have an opportunity to raise some additional funds through a crowd funding campaign.
The exciting bit - we have applied to Sport England who have linked with Crowd Funder. Sport England will contribute 40% of our target as long as we reach our target. So we need to raise £6,000 and Sport England will match that with another £4,000. We need to meet our target to get the Sport England funding within 4 weeks and we have a wide range of rewards to help us hit that target.
By fundraising we hope to go someway to plug losses we have sustained during the past year and keep everyone swimming in 2021. We want all our swimmers to continue in the sport they love and to be able to provide a high-standard and quality of training and support for all our squads.
How Crowd Funding works? We have set a target of £10,000 to be raised over 4 weeks. So please share our page far and wide on all your social media - we need our 'crowd' to be huge. Even the smallest of donations is very much welcomed. It is important that we have a high number of individual contributors as there are targets we need to meet to qualify - so if you have two rewards you are interested in it would really help us out if possible that two different people (and bank accounts/ cards) make a pledge!
Have a look at our great rewards on the crowd funder page they include:
Raffle £10 tickets - Prizes include a Rio training top signed by many of the current Team GB Swimming Team, a signed Adam Peaty photo, a Cambridge United Top signed by the current squad or a £100 Amazon shopping voucher plus many more prizes.
Shopping vouchers - From John Lewis
Special Edition Swim Training Caps
Pledge a month of training fees - We are able to offer a months training fees as a reward in the campaign, if you choose this reward a credit will be made to your account which will be used to pay for a month of training fees once we are back in the pool. Please reward with the Covid squad you are allocated to, you can opt to pay multiple months in this way - everything will help us to reach our target!! Please NOTE - the funding page will automatically select a £10 reward please add the additional amount you wish to pledge in the 'other amount box'
Optional Tip Box - Crowd Funder have teamed up with Sport England and are not taking any profit from the money we raise. There is an optional tip box, this can be set to any amount including zero.
Look out for posts in social media and helps us to promote our campaign!!
Thank you to everyone who has donated raffle prizes and rewards.
