The award winning Surrey Spartans Hockey Club has been delivering a wide range of hockey activities to people of all ages and abilities in the heart of Guildford since 2010.
The primary focus of the club is to enable people who would otherwise not have access to hockey pick up a stick and participate. To date the club has enabled over 250 adults take part in regular organised hockey activities as well as over 1000 people of all ages take part in adhoc community engagement events. Last year the club expanded its activities to include regular sessions for juniors, delivery of the Surrey Youth Games sessions for Guildford Borough as well as taking hockey into local primary schools.
As the club is currently completely funded through participation fees collected from the organised hockey activities, the ability for the club to maintain equipment, organise & deliver engagement activities and help those less advantaged participate in the sport is dependent on any surplus generated in the core activities of the club. Increasing administration and delivery costs has meant that the club is generating less funds to put into the community engagement events.
This crowdfunding campaign is aiming to raise the funds necessary to restructure financing of the club's engagement activities, refurbish our community equipment and enable the continued delivery of community engagement projects into 2017 and beyond. To thank you for your support, we have pulled together a collection of rewards that have kindly been provided by our club members and other friends of the club incluing free hire of our amazing inflatables!
