The Club relies on three main sources of funding: membership fees, grants and fundraising.
Each year we need to raise around £40,000 to run the Club. Whilst our members do pay a membership fee we aim to keep this as low as possible hence why fundraising is so important. For many of our children our classes are the only sporting opportunities they are able to participate in due to their particular needs.
We have always been generously supported, not only by parents, friends and family members, as well as our own volunteers, but also by so many community groups and organisations – schools, other sports clubs, universities, colleges and businesses. This has enabled us to continue to offer our unique specialised club. We face strong competition from other local and national charities all doing great work as we apply for larger sums to ensure the long term viability of the Club. This means that we need to continuously fundraise by organising events as well as applying to various charitable organisations.
Organise your own fundraising event
This is a great way to bring people together, have fun and raise money for the Club. Why not organise your own fundraising event for Horizon Sports Club? Our Fundraising Gallery has some ideas worth considering. We would be delighted to help you so just get in touch!
We are always keen to discuss corporate fundraising – both big and small. This is a great opportunity to promote the Club to a much wider audience. Most recently the Club was fortunate enough to be one of only 96 finalists for the Persimmon Homes Building Futures fund. Although we did not win one of the big prizes we did receive a much-appreciated consolation prize of £5,000. To discuss this sort of opportunity please contact Hilda Stearn our fundraising trustee (firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07808 229476) – she would be delighted to hear from you!
