The generosity of our members and the kindness of strangers never ceases to amaze.
We launched our #FlyingHigh Crowdfunder campaign last Saturday, hoping for perhaps a few hundred pounds each day towards our target of £20,000. Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine that on the eve of our first week, your donations and support would have raised £15,565! We've had contact from our rugby family old and new, near and far, friends who want to protect and support grassroots sport and even England Roses !
Our offer of a pledge of £8,000 from Sport England was subject to two conditions. On Day 3 we met the first, to have raised £5,000 and Day 5 brought our 100th supporter, so their pledge was made. Now we have reached a staggering £15,565, 77% of our total, and still with 21 days of our campaign remaining. Thank you one and all !
This is an 'all or nothing' campaign which means that we have to raise the remaining £4,435 to ensure we receive our target amount of £20,000. these are difficult days for grassroots sports but we love our rugby club and are proud of the heritage, commitment and achievements of our members past and present. Every donation - great or small - will help us keep rugby on the park for over 300 Mini and Junior players as well as our Colts, Seniors, Vets and Women's squads, now and for the future. Please spread the word and continue your support by liking and sharing our campaign page www.flyinghighcampaign.com far and wide. Together we'll keep the blue flag flying high !
