We hope that our Chairman, Mark Birch’s, emails alongside our web posts and social media activities are helping you to keep involved with the club. I can assure you that the Management Committee is meeting regularly on Zoom to steer the club at this difficult time.
We have had a great response to the call for donations of money and time. However, those options are not available to everyone and several members have asked what else they can do to help.
Easy fundraising is one way! It’s a scheme that I ran with one of our AG teams a few years ago with some success. The best thing about it is that it is totally FREE.
Join the scheme and whenever you buy online the retailer donates a small percentage of their profit to us. What you pay is no different it’s all down to the retailer.
Of course, the retailers hope that their support will encourage you to use them rather than their competitors, but that’s your choice. There are lots of retailers to choose from and here are just a handful of some of the 4,000+ retailers in the scheme.
So if you are doing your weekly grocery shopping, getting to grips with school uniforms, or even ordering a take-away there are lots of places to shop. If like me, you have been shopping online more than ever during lockdown, this is the perfect way to raise funds.
To give your support to the club:
Click on the ‘Get Started’ button and complete the form selecting Huddersfield Rugby Union Football Club as your fundraising cause.
It really is that simple.
There are special offers such as a mobile option and a ‘Donation reminder’ app that installs on your browser. Click on that icon before browsing and all the retailers participating in your search will be highlighted.
Plus, once you are a member, if you recommend a friend we can get a cash bonus too. Just think, if every member of the family became a member today, that could build a substantial pot.
I really hope that you will decide to join in, with your help, we can emerge from this stronger and fitter as a club.
