Thank you to all the parents who managed along to the meeting on Sunday 24th at the Botanics café. It was great to have your support and ideas and we are now in a really good position for moving forward with our Fundraising ventures!
I felt it would be helpful to summarise what was agreed for those who were there as well as circulate our plans to those who didn’t make it. But before I do… a little update….
Our Fundraising has begun, and we have £843.96 and 40 euros banked already!!
Other events discussed at the meeting:
Please put this date in your diary as this will be our main fundraiser and social get together. It’s a fun night for both the parents and players and a great opportunity for meeting others. We hope that as many of you as possible can join us on the night and if not, you are still able to get involved by buying horses, sponsoring a race, donating auction and raffle prizes. Please can I encourage you all to contribute. Further information will follow.
Thanks to Jaine Campbell who is organising the races, Lynne who is printing our programme and Brian Winning who is overseeing the auction prizes. We need another couple of volunteers to assist with prizes / assist on the night so if you can help, please let Pippa know. (email@example.com)
Moira Byrne and Carol Ann Wilkinson have kindly offered to run this successful event again. All donations should be brought to Sunday training at 9am and given to Carol Ann or Dean Wilkinson. Toys, good quality bric a brac, clothes, sports equipment etc all welcome.
Our photographer, Jamie Johnston, will take photos of the squads once selected. These will be available at a cost of £10. Date tbc but likely early May.
Thank you to Craig Fraser who is looking into organising this again at Forrester rugby Club on a Friday night. Date tbc
Thank you to Sarah Mauritzen for this suggestion, another lovely social occasion. More details and a date will follow shortly.
Thank you to Ann Maitland for offering this exciting event. More details to follow.
Thank you to Karen Wightman who is exploring both of the above and will feed back to the committee.
Once squads are selected, all players will be encouraged to raise £50 each in anyway that they want. This venture allows all our players to make their own contribution to fundraising in a way that works for them. From washing cars for neighbours, to bake sales at school, to sponsored walks…there is no limit to what they can do, and it would be nice to hear about their plans in due course.
Thanks to Ann Maitland who is looking into “Sport for All” funding along with Rotary Club funding
Sponsorship and fund matching by employers was also discussed and we would encourage everyone to explore this if they can.
Local sports councils may also offer funds for individuals involved in community projects.
A great wealth of ideas which will bring in money for the teams to travel to Paris but will also bring us together as a community of families within Scottish Touch. If anyone has any further suggestions offers of support please do let us know.
More to follow, but for now, enjoy your Eater Holidays!
