Easy Fundraising

Fundraising

There are number of ways we can continue to raise funds in addition to income from meets and membership fees and never has this been more important than now.  Below is a list of ways we can raise much need funds, we'd encourage all members to sign up to Easyfundraising and to support our Crowdfunding campaign.


1.  Crowdfunding - at the beginnig of March 2021 we launched a Crowdfunder campagin and on Friday 26 March 2021 we reached our initial £20,000 Crowdfunder target! We'd love your support to help us reach our next target which is £30,000. 

WHY ARE WE CROWD FUNDING?

We need to raise funds to help plug the gap caused by the lockdowns, as meets were cancelled and membership fees dropped.  Sport England launched an initiative called 'Active Together - Return to Play' to combat the impact of  the Covid-19 pandemic on sports clubs and community activity groups, by offering addititional funding through the Crowdfunder platform.

Our initial crowdfunding target was £20,000 and to receive the match funding from Sport England, our club needed to do a few things:

  • Raise at least 25% of the initial target (£5,000)
  • Raise this from a minimum number of 75 supporters
  • Sports England will then match fund up to 50% towards our initial crowdfunding target – up to a maximum of £10,000.

Once we reached 25% we were awarded £8000!! 

 

Please join in and support our club as much as you can, either by donating or by sharing our campaign with families and friends. We really do need your support to help PNSC survive the financial impact of the pandemic.
