We are inviting supporters and friends of the Foundation to offer contributions to help the Titans Community Foundation in their work across schools and with the wider community of Rotherham. These contributions will help bridge the shortfall in fundraising created by the Coronavirus Pandemic.
What We Have Achieved Already
Prior to the pandemic the TCF coaches provided over 1000 hours of coaching, mentoring and support to over 4000 children and over 250 adults in Rotherham. They were Reading Buddies to children struggling with literacy, led Healthy Lifestyle campaigns with children aged from 3-11, as well as teaching over 600 children how to do CPR through the British Heart Foundation. They ran after school clubs, holiday camps and coached schools, colleges and university teams. They developed and hosted weekly Walking Rugby sessions for adults in Rotherham and Maltby and last but not least, they made phone calls to vulnerable people who were in isolation because of the pandemic.
How Did We Fund This in The Past?
Historically we have run fundraising events such as Comedy Nights, the 50/50 Match Day Raffle, and social events but all this came to a halt in March 2020 when the country went into lockdown.
With the end of lockdown finally in sight, but with no cash generating activity possible at the moment, we are launching a crowdfunding campaign to allow the #TitansFamily to support the Foundation during these unprecedented times and keep us in operation until we can resume our old methods of fundraising.
What Will We Use The Money For
Whilst we want to continue with the programmes in schools and colleges we want to expand the work we do with the older (over 60) and more vulnerable members of the Rotherham Community. We want to extend the reach of our phone calls to lonely people and we want to organise social events in a nice socially distanced environment to help them to re-integrate into society after such a long period of isolation. These funds will make this possible.
There are a range of rewards and offers available to people who donate, from match day tickets and merchandise all the way up to coaching and match day opportunities with the players and staff.
