Perth Academy 2015 Rugby Tour | Cause of the Month | Part 1

Every month we’ll be highlighting some of the great causes in the easyfundraising family. As it’s the first in this feature we thought we’d bring you two great easyfundraising causes, starting with school sports club, Perth Academy 2015 Rugby Tour.

Perth Academy 2015 Rugby Tour

Perth Academy 2015 Rugby Tour have been fundraising for two and half years to raise money to take 26 teenage school boys from Perth Academy Rugby XV to Ontario, Canada on the trip of a lifetime!

The lads, accompanied by three brave rugby coaches will be promoting Scotland and in particular Scottish Rugby by playing in five rugby matches against schools and clubs in Ontario this June.

Perth Academy 2015 Rugby Tour have undertaken a variety of fundraising activities to make this trip happen, including supermarket bag packing, selling tour calendars, washing cars and even a duck race!  The lads had their own entrepreneur fundraiser challenge where they had to grow £5. Some have raised up to £200!

So far they’ve raised over £500 using easyfundraising, contributing to their overall £40,000 total raised to date!

Kirsty Nisbett, of Perth Academy 2015 Rugby Tour, entered an easyfundraising competition in partnership with Viking, and won £100 towards the cause. On winning, Kirsty said:

“I feel excited, grateful – we wish to say thank you to Viking for sponsoring the competition and easyfundraising for giving all the various good causes the many competition opportunities to win extra funding for their respective cause.”

To sign up new supporters Perth Academy 2015 Rugby Tour use the Raise More tools available on the easyfundraising website to spread the word. They also use social media to remind their supporters to shop through easyfundraising by regularly posting on Facebook.

We asked Kirsty whether she’d recommend easyfundraising to others looking to raise donations;

“We already have done so. It’d be daft not to as it’s a great idea to use to underpin the main thrust of your fundraising.”
