About The Epee Club Charitable Fund
The Epee Club established The Epée Club Charitable Fund – Charity Registration Number 1159346 – in March 2015. Its charitable purpose is “the promotion of community participation in healthy recreation by the provision of financial assistance to enable members of the public to participate in the sport of epee fencing at all levels.”
There are three Trustees, all of whom are reputable members of the Epée community:
David Partridge – President of The Epée Club. Businessman.
Tom Cadman – British Fencing Board member. Lawyer.
Lawrence Burr OBE – Vice President The Epee Club. Retired Army Officer.
The three trustees have joined with British Epee Squad manager (Jon Willis) and the British Epée Weapons Manager (Dr Lindsay Bottoms) to help identify where funds can be used to develop a viable one, three and five year strategy plan to produce a successful épée squad at international level by 2021.
The Epée Club Charitable Fund will support épée fencing separately from the existing British Fencing Pathway and WCP system.
Donations are invited from all members of the fencing community to fulfil this remit. All donors will receive an acknowledgement and a regular newsletter on how their donations are helping to achieve the further development of épée within the UK.
