Fundraising is critical to the success of almost every amateur sports club in existence, as well as many professional teams too.
There are several ways in which we are seeking help as follows:-
The Club’s main annual fundraising event is the Annual Dinner, held in September/October. This is also a celebration of the Club’s successes throughout the year and brings together senior athletes, parents and coaches for a wonderful dinner dance.
Annual JAGs Meet
Our own JAGS Annual Age group Meet, which is for young swimmers throughout Scotland, usually takes place around March/ April and money received at this event from entry fees, programme adverts, door sales, raffles and tombolas is absolutely vital to the ongoing well being of the club.
- Half page – £25
- Full page – £50
- Race sponsorship – £10 per race
- Gala main sponsor – £250
Raffle & Tombola
- Donations of gifts or vouchers for raffle/tombola prizes will also be most welcome.
Grants / Donations
We are also extremely grateful for the various grants and donations we receive from time to time from both current and previous members, along with those who have a strong connection to the club.
How do we spend the money
Fundraising money is used in a range of ways across the club: from the purchase of new equipment; to assisting some of the senior swimmers with travel and accommodation costs (which for some of the senior swimmers can be quite significant). However, we are continually looking at how swimmers across the club can benefit whether it be funding a bus to a local competition for younger swimmers or applying a donation to swimmers travelling outwith Scotland for a specific competition.
