The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses & clubs to survive. We are hanging in there but could do with some help.
Crowdfunder are offering us their platform to allow all UK small businesses & clubs to pre-sell their meals, events, hotel bookings etc. for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date.
We would like to offer our events as a buy forward option - So what does that mean?
Well, really its quite simple - you buy from us a race credit, for any amount, that can be used in the future to offset race fees when we are back up and running as a brilliant triathlon club.
You choose how much you wish to buy now - Pay Forward - to an event that we stage once Covid restrictions allow.
Your money will keep us afloat to pay our monthly bills and secure our future as a club to bring back our lost season of events. As you can imagine, entering a triathlon/running event hasn't been a high priority on peoples list and our industry has taken a huge loss.
Fortunately, Lins and I have other jobs to keep us going, but the club expenses still need to be covered, tech still needs updating, loans need repaying etc etc. So far in 2020 we are operating on a -97% income.
We hope you can see the benefit your Paying Forward will do for the club and its future - think of it as buying yourself a lovely race voucher for 2021 - and giving you something to look forward to when we can actually play nicely together again x
Stay safe for now kids x
