The Club has undertaken some sterling fundraising efforts over recent months. The Juniors squad takes part regularly in bag-packing days at local supermarkets as a means of raising vital funds. Members of other squads also join in to act as packers and supervisors. The session on February 21st at Morrisons, Doxford Park raised £933 while on Easter Monday the £1000 barrier was surpassed for the first time with a total of £1023 being raised on April 6th at Sainsbury’s Arnison Centre store.
The Boat Race Ball on April 11th also raised around £500.
The Club is reliant on the efforts of its members to provide funds with which to purchase new boats and equipment so all efforts are appreciated.
The next bag packing day has been arranged for May 30th at Morrisons in Consett. Please see Alan Granlund or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part.
