Maidenhead Softball Club
As Maidenhead Softball Club expands it's efforts to promote the playing of Softball within the local communities it also needs to undertake a number of fund raising activities to support these efforts and to invest in it's facilities. All the money MSC raises during a year goes back into the club and goes towards funding:-
New Equipment or replacing old equipment.
Covering the cost of courses for our coaches, umpires and volunteers.
Running taster sessions for the local community
Helping to running our schools programs in partnership with the Royal Borough and Sir William Borlase's Grammar School.
Marketing the club to the local community and recruiting players into the sport.
Investing into facilities at our ground.
We are always looking at new ideas for fundraising, some are done through in-person events others are done online. The two current initials involve online shopping. It's easy to help us doesn't cost you anything. if you can help us that would be fanastic and you would be helping make a difference in the local community we server.
Maidenhead Softball Club is a member of the Amazon Associates program, this means that when you visit Amazon.co.uk from a banner, like the one on this page, from anywhere on our site and subsequently purchase goods, Amazon donate a minimum of 5% of the purchase price to the club.
It is that easy, there is no catch, no hidden charges for you as the consumer. The only caveat is that is only applies to Amazon UK. Other than that it's easy.
Please share this with your friends, family, colleagues and think about us when buying online.
Maidenhead Softball Club has also joined up to the easyfundraising.co.uk program. This is also an online shopping program, but also a search related program.
How does it work?
easyfundraising.org.uk helps charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups, and other good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online. So far they have raised over £4 million for causes throughout the UK.
It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for your cause instead. It's as simple as that!
You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 1.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!
