Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are holding a Swimathon alongside Bathgate Academy’s Polar Academy on 3rd February at Xcite Bathgate.
With over 70 BASC swimmers taking part we’re aiming to swim 50k while raising money to help local community projects such as:
- Sponsoring children who do not have the opportunity to swim as part of a competitive swimming club and coaching them to enable them to compete in a local competition. This will include coaching from one of our head coaches, full kit required to take part in competition, transport to enable them to attend coaching sessions and support at a competition.
- Funding the Bathgate Procession annual gala.
- Funding local children to attend competitions which will help improve their confidence and swimming ability.
- purchasing required kit to help improve technique and build confidence.
We’ll have competitive swimmers, novice swimmers, parents and coaches all taking part to ensure we smash our target.
