Weʼre raising £3,000 to Support Urmston HC Mens 1st XI, Cancer Research UK and MIND in light of COVID-19
- Urmston, Manchester
- 26 days to go
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.
What are we doing? - Running 2633km between the Urmston HC lads over the period of July
Why 2633km? - Thats the distance we travel to and from away games in our league each season #urmstonawaydaychallenge
Where does my donation go? - 50% to Cancer Research UK and MIND to support their ongoing hard work, 50% to Urmston HC Mens 1st Team Support Fund
Why does Urmston HC need your donations? - The Urmston Hockey Club lads have been thinking hard about how we can multi-task (not our stong point). We wanted to give something back to the charities that are struggling with donations in light of the Covid-19 situation. We also wanted to raise some funds for our team, given the inability to hold our normal summer tournament, summer league and social events during lockdown. As a club that relies on annual membership and fundraising to cover our costs, this has hugely impacted us ahead of the proposed new season to start later this Autumn. Rather than going for government funding (thats better left to the businesses that really need it and the healthcare and education sectors rather than us!) we thought we‘d ask you!
Who are we? - Urmston HC has been providing local hockey for the community across Urmston, Stretford, Davyhulme and Flixton in Southwest Manchester for over 30 years and is a relatively small, local level club but with aspirations beyond our funding levels. Unlike other hockey clubs we’re not blessed with 20 teams, 1000’s of members, massive sponsors or wealthy benefactors. We’re more like; 7 senior teams, a growing junior section and 150 hard working members. As a result, every penny counts and anything we can raise will be hugely beneficial to our short term needs and long term growth and social outreach. Urmston HC
Where do the donations to Urmston HC get spent? - We’re seeking to raise funds for: coaching of the Mens top level teams (£3400), new goal netting (£130), new goal bolts (£55), a new set of goals (£3000) and team accomodation (£415). This is a tall order, so we’re starting small to begin with.
