Welcome to the sharks fundraising page

Following the AGM, we both volunteered to set up a Sharks fundraising committee and are now looking for parents from all squads to join us and help raise some funds to support the development of our kids, as well as having some fun along the way! Looking at the talent we have in the swimming pool, we are certain there is a wealth of skills and/or connections amongst parents that could really make a difference. We are looking for as much or as little support as you feel able to donate in the following areas:
  • Create and manage the fundraising page on the Sharks website
  • Organise an external fundraising event e.g. Wolf Run, pub quiz or similar
  • Be part of the organising committee for Sharks events, including Summer BBQ, Xmas party/club awards night
  • Manage the 100 club
  • Coordinate a fun swim event
  • Create a sponsorship package to attract funding from local businesses
  • Secure charity grants from community schemes e.g. Waitrose Community Matters, Persimmon Homes Charity Champions, Co-op Local Community Fund
Our key aim is to raise funds to support the development of all members and this will mostly be spent on coaching equipment, along with raising the profile of Sharks in the local community, to help secure sponsorship and future talent. Our first goal is to raise funds to buy 4 iPad’s for the coaches so they can video swimmers and enhance their development through visual feedback and some freestanding whiteboards. This gives us a target of around £2000. If any of you are able to secure discounts on these items through your contacts, then we would love to hear from you!
 
Our first new initiative has been to register Stratford Sharks as a charity on Give as you Live, which is a free way to raise funds for the club from online shopping at over 4,200 online stores. We will be sending you details of how to sign up in a separate email.

We really hope you will be willing to help by joining us and we promise we will try to make this as fun as possible, with meetings held in the pub! Please contact us via the fundraising email: fundraising@stratfordsharksasc.co.uk
 
Thank you for reading and we look forward to hearing from you either by email or in the gallery!
