Firstly a massive THANK YOU to all of our amazing supporters, both near and far, for your response to our Aspatria Rugby Club “Kick back at Covid” Crowdfunding campaign. In less than a week, we have unbelievably hit 90% of our fundraising target.
It is both humbling and encouraging to receive such generous support during these times. We would therefore encourage all Cumbrian Sports clubs, who have been unable to generate the usual income, brought about by Covid, to look at what options are available to you.
Like setting up a Crowdfunding page, with zero platform fees, and assuming certain criteria’s are met, then Sports England will match up to 50% of the initial target.
Please see our site for details of our campaign, and video introduction from Barney our treasurer: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/aspatriarufckickcovid With 29 days still to run, we hope to smash our initial target.
Apart from thanking all those who have contributed so far, a special thank you goes to Jack Clegg for the momentum he has created on social media, and Mel Hanley for his little black book of past players. Once a Black Red always a Black Red.
