    Weʼve raised £395 to help fund Swansea City Roller Derby's first overseas game

    Swansea, UK
    Funded on Tuesday, 19th February 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Swansea City Roller Derby was established in 2010, and since then the team has gone from strength to strength. We are currently ranked 38th in Europe and 14th in the UK and are always training hard to climb the rankings. We want the team to grow and develop, and part of this is challenging ourselves to play highly ranked opponents wherever we can..

    The team now has the opportunity to compete in Nantes, which will be the first time we will play outside the UK, representing South West Wales roller derby in Europe.

    The cost of travel for the team is huge. We are a small team and entirely self funded. Particularly the cost of insurance is difficult, we need specialist team insurance to cover us for the trip.

    If you feel in any way you could help out with the fund, we would be eternally grateful! Any amount is hugely appreciated! Thanks for reading.

      You guys are awesome and have smashed all our expectations of what we could raise! Anything more is a bonus now, but will be spent well and appreciated.

      Thank you so much everyone for your generous donations, we are so grateful. We modestly tried to raise half the amount our insurance costs, but given the fantastic response so far, we may aim a little higher. Every little bit helps, and we can't thank you enough for what has been given so far. SCRD

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
