STRETCH TARGET £75,000
Who are we?
Frinton-on-Sea Lawn Tennis Club is a not-for-profit multi-sports and social club. We have a rich heritage of over 120 years. We offer tennis, squash, gym, fitness classes, walking football, swimming and croquet together with a vast range of events and social activities which serve the local and wider community.
Why are we crowdfunding now?
The Coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on our Club’s finances mainly the general depletion of our funds and our inability to put money aside for capital projects.
One such capital project is the replacement of our existing floodlights with LED. Our existing floodlights are continually failing, are expensive to replace and costly to run. LED produces a better quality of light, is more reliable, has much greater longevity, is less costly to run and is more environmentally friendly. At present we have 6 lights not working, so this is our main priority.
We also need donations to help restore some of our funds to allow us more time to get back on our feet and to carry out other essential work such as repairing the Clubhouse thatch.
Will you back us?
We are appealing to you to donate as much as you are able to this crowdfunding project. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. Gift aid is available if you tick the gift aid box and complete a few details.
What the money raised will do
The money raised will be used to install LED lighting on the bubble courts. The existing working lights on the bubble courts will then be used to replace those not working on the other courts and to provide replacements for future failures.
This will help to ensure a safe and well-lit space, ensure a secure Clubhouse, buy us time to get back on our feet and ensure the Club continues to serve the local community.
Who will benefit
The Coronavirus pandemic has made it even more important that the local community has a facility on it's doorstep which provides opportunities for meeting people and keeping fit. All age groups will benefit. Being a non-profit organisation, all donations will be used for the benefit of the local community.
