- We’ve launched the club SOS campaign to give all our sports clubs access to more funding for better equipment and facilities.
- Win £500 cash for your club - just raise £5 with easyfundraising between Friday 21st October and Friday 2nd December.
- easyfundraising is simple, you can raise money for your club every time your members shop online.
Recent research conducted by the Sports and Recreation Alliance indicates that 1 in 10 sports clubs in the UK don’t have access to enough funding to provide appropriate equipment for members to participate fully in their sport. This is a huge issue and we want to do something about it...
We’re committed to ensuring our clubs can deliver the best member experience possible and give you convenient access to more funding, by making fundraising easier for your club community to get involved in.
In partnership with the team at easyfundraising, we’ve developed our Club SOS campaign, giving you access to free funding and a chance to win a cash donation of £500 when you Shop Online to Succeed. Here’s how your club can get involved:
1. Register your club with easyfundraising
Join over 10,000 sports clubs and register your club as an easyfundraising cause:
Clubs like yours have raised almost £2 million this way. Every time you and fellow members shop online, your club will receive a donation courtesy of the retailer you shop with. There are over 3,000 retailers to shop with, including the likes of Amazon, Sports Direct and Betfair!
