Fundraising

As we prepare ourselves for the start of the Michaelmas Term, the Club’s aim to buy a new Women’s 1st VIII and Men’s Coxless Quad are coming to the fore.

As well as the money raised over the past years in preparation, we are going to have to pull together to raise the required funds to make these aims a reality. We already have our established events through the year to aid this: NEIRC, Winter Challenge Cup, Durham Regatta Pimm’s Tent, however the club has also set up an account with ‘Easyfundraising’. The idea of this is simple: If you wish to buy anything online, from train cinema tickets, to your weekly shop with Tesco or Sainsbury’s, please go to the site by first visiting Easyfundraising. By doing that, the various retailers donate a certain percentage of everything spent back to the boat club. So without you even spending anything extra, the Boat Club  benefits.

If this appeals to you, as we hope it does, please take a few minutes to have a look at www.easyfundraising.org.uk and help the Boat Club in it’s cause!

We would also like to invite anybody who would like to donate a significant amount to help buy one of these boats and in return have the name of your choice emblazoned across its bow, please send an email to: thepresident@dubc.co.uk
