2021/22 Crowdfunder Campaign

In Winter of 2021 after 8 weeks, our crowdfunder campaign closed and not only did we smash through our £10K target before the end of December, we also hit our £15K stretch target on the very last day!

In total, we raised £15,116 via the crowdfunder!  

In addition we also have raised over £4,000 in donations paid directly into the club bank account - from local businesses, charitable organisations, corporate sponsorships or from fundraising activities by individual club members.  


Sponsorship and Fundraising. In order to try and keep annual fee increases as low as possible and to provide development activities for our swimmers and coaches, transport to galas and to stage fun, social events, the Club relies heavily on fundraising and sponsorship.  In the past we have held cake sales/raffles, bag packing and even a swimathon - all of which are great fun, raise the profile of our club and raise much needed funds too!

Sponsorship  Parents who have businesses are invited to promote their business through a sponsored link on the website and noticeboard. We have a selection of packages available  - you can sponsor an event or the club in general - but we are open to offers! Please contact [email protected] for further information about sponsoring W&DSC. 

We also raise funds through:

  • 100 Club (monthly draw)

  • Christmas Penguin Raffle

  • Raffles and cake stalls

  • Initiatives by parents or volunteers

  • Grants for coach development and /or equipment

Here are some of the ways you can help to raise funds for our Club:

The 100 Club raises important funds for our Club along with a chance for you to win more than you put in!  You simply buy one square at just £10 for the whole year, it’s a bargain!  Prizes range from £20 to £5 per month provided we have sufficient members.  If you/your child leaves the Club you will not receive a refund of your 100 Club monies, nor receive any winnings once you've left. To buy tickets please see Liz Bazeley on Fri nights 8-9pm Witney or Sun 5.30-7.30pm Witney or e-mail her here. You need to be in it to win it!
