    In order to keep the club progressing we need to raise funds on a regular basis.

    Monies go towards general running costs, insurance, kit and will be going towards our next gig.

    We’d like to be in a position to order a new gig by 2020.

    If you have any fund raising ideas or events, especially if you’d like to take the lead and organise something please express it on this thread.

    Thanks.

    We need a plan!!
    I’ve found that by having a clear ‘target’ that we want to achieve makes fund raising an easier ‘sell’ with people generally understanding what we are about e.g. linking the target of a new gig to;
    – fun
    – fellowship
    – community development
    – health & fitness
    – etc
    Happy yo be involved.

    I know jumble sales are always a good way to make some money and I always keep a bag going of stuff I want to chuck out ready for a charity shop so I guess between us all we could get plenty and maybe ask neighbours friends etc

    I’m happy to help with this if its after mid august but being a bit new to the area I don’t know where would be good or who to contact etc so maybe if there’s interest we could work out a plan for Dave!

    A possible fundraising idea that I have helped to organize but could not take part in the end due to work in the past is taking part in the https://www.greatriverrace.co.uk/index.php and getting sponsorship for completing?

    Possibly a bit pricey for participants maybe? But well worth it if people are up for the challenge and a bit of fun 😀

    Hardest part to organize is logistically getting a boat to the center of London but if this can be over come it is well worth the effort. Starting with a years notice minimum to organize helps.

    Putting out there for thoughts? 🙂

    Just used boiler juice to order my heating oil for the year for the first time and noticed they support community clubs/projects so created a group https://www.boilerjuice.com/community/exmouth-gig-rowing-club/

    If you do not like the idea of this I will delete it but should get £2.50 for my order at least 😃 if you agree with this idea you can put one of the widgets on the website to promote it?

    Plan for sweepstake.
    £2 per team – prize £20 for 1st £10 for 2nd. £34 profit for the club.
    I will aim to draw teams out at our regatta.
    See me on the beach before then if you want to be in with a chance to win!!
