£15,000 stretch target 3 days left
108% 184 supporters
Flexible funding – this project will receive all pledges made by 10th May 2021 at 10:28am

To raise £10,000 to rebuild, supplement fees, offer concessionary places for those that may have been hit financially by Covid 19

New stretch target

We did it and thank you so much to everyone who supported us to raise £10,000. We now have a stretch target of £15,000 as we have time left.  Going forward if we can raise more than our target, this would simply mean more inclusion, more pool time, potential reduction in fees, more coaches and a more successful club able to meet the needs of children of all ages in all circumstances in the Wakefield area so if you can help us please do we are very grateful.


Can you help us make a difference to 100 kids and the future of their Swimming Club?

THE HIT
The pandemic has had a huge impact on everyone and has heavily impacted our revenue, but our kids are the unsung heroes who have missed out on so much time whether that be in education, socialising or gaining new friends as well as taking part in sports. What we need now is support to help us to continue helping our swimmers to achieve their full potential on our return to the pool.

OUR STORY AND WHAT WE NEED TO REBUILD

1615978464_making_our_ideas_happen_crowdfunder_instagram.png

City of Wakefield Swimming Club is seeking funds to rebuild not only into the club we were before the pandemic but to grow beyond that to new heights and we need your help to raise additional funds to support this.  During the different periods of lockdown we made the decision to suspend our training fees. With this and the inability to host galas our reserves have significantly reduced and therefore, we would like to raise £10,000 as part of this crowdfunding campaign to provide for our return to pool activities, offer places for more children who need opportunity, offer concessionary places to those perhaps hit financially by Covid 19, support our current members and widen the scope of our offer to provide for those with special needs.

BUILD AND SECURE OUR FUTURE

We are lucky to have enthusiastic kids who love and support their club and the younger generation, who volunteer and coach in the club in their own time.  We want to invest more in our older teams to develop their coaching skills too by offering them a development plan which gains them coaching qualifications and supports them in their education and secures our coaches of the future who lead by example and mentor our younger swimmers.


Lead by Example

We want to encourage more kids to be like our Club Captains Harrison and Briony.  

 

Working hard to gain as much funding as possible

We will also be applying for extra funding through Sport England which means if our application is successful we could receive up to 50% of our target, but we need everyone's help us to get there.
