Dear Parents/Guardians and Swimmers,
Over the past year, Stirling Swimming Club has been fortunate to secure sponsorship from Alere Technologies, Blair Drummond Safari Park and Camas Enterprises. Alere Technology and Blair Drummond sponsored the Stirling Open meet held in January, and Camas Enterprises have sponsored the new yellow swim caps and polo shirts for the club technical officials, coaches and volunteers.
Every effort is made by the Sponsorship & Fund Raising team to secure new sponsorship but it proving very difficult in the current economic climate. Local companies have been approached with the view to purchase one of our sponsorship packs; Gold, Silver or Bronze, to support our upcoming Stirling Autumn Meet on 2nd October at the Peak but this has proved unsuccessful.
I would like to take this opportunity to ask parents/guardians for help in moving the sponsorship of our club forward. It is important to bring in additional funds to supplement the growing costs the club is experiencing especially in relation to pool time. I am asking for help to develop contacts or leads into companies. You may work for a company that would be open to receiving a request for sponsorship from an employee, or you may run a company and would welcome the opportunity to sponsor the club. Any contacts, leads or direction you can offer me would be appreciated.
Stirling Swimming Club has 3 categories of sponsorship opportunities to download from the Fundraising and Sponsorship page on our club website www.stirlingswimming.co.uk :
- Gold (Alere Technology and Camas Enterprises - £800.00 each)
- Bronze (Blair Drummond Safari Park - £350.00)
Over the past 12 months, every effort has been made to raise Funds with the help of volunteers and yourself contributing. We have had delicious ‘Cake Sales’ at the Grand Prix’s, successful ‘Bag Packing’ at M&S, ‘tombola’s’ and ‘raffles’. Every fund raising activity, however small, has contributed overall to the club and is very much appreciated.
I will be at the Annual General Meeting on Monday, 26th September and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss any sponsorship or fund raising ideas you may have to help secure a strong financial future for the club.
In the meantime, if you are in a position to help the club with a possible sponsor for the Stirling Autumn meet or any general business leads you could share, I can be reached by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or please telephone me on M: 07752 790960 to discuss further. I look forward to hearing from you.
