Alderley Edge Hockey Club: Hockey for All

Fundraising Heroes headerEach week we recognise ‘Fundraising Heroes’ giving them the spotlight to highlight the incredible difference causes and charities across the UK make every day.

Fundraising Heroes, Alderley Edge Hockey Club in Cheshire were founded in 1888 and boast a long and successful history. The club, which has 600 members and a thriving junior section, favours an inclusive approach to the sport and offers every new member the warmest of welcomes. Age and ability are no barrier to joining in, and the local community really is at the heart of everything they do.

In total, the club has raised over £800 through online shopping with easyfundraising. These donations have been used to purchase new hockey balls for training and a shed to store equipment in.

Last Christmas they raised £120.65 with easyfundraising, simply by ramping up their communication with their members during November and December and handing out easyfundraising flyers at their junior training sessions to inspire more parents to sign up. This year, they’re taking a similar approach to their festive fundraising, commenting that they plan to:

Tell our supporters, tell them again, and then again! We’ll also be using social media and highlighting the amazing example of our star fundraisers.”

Christmas is nearly here, and good causes the length and breadth of the UK recognise that this is one of the very best times of year to promote easyfundraising. Buying seasonal gifts and supplies online really does make life a lot simpler – and, as a bonus, every purchase through the site will raise a much-appreciated donation.
