Want to raise money to help fund your hockey club? Using GoRaise to generate funds every time your supporters shop online is a great way to do so, but here are a few more ideas beyond online shopping:
Bag packing at a local supermarket – do you have an army of energetic players at your disposal? If so, get in touch with a local supermarket and arrange to spend the day helping to pack groceries at the checkout in return for donations to your club.
Match day tuck shop – ever been stood watching on the sidelines and wished you’d brought a flask along? So have all the other spectators. Get a small table, a hot water dispenser, and head to a nearby wholesalers for some teabags, coffee and biscuits. Sell snacks and refreshments at all your home games and use the funds gathered to support the club.
Club film night – once a month, why not organise a regular social where the whole team gets together and watches a movie. If you are a university team, you may be able to find a lecture hall that you can use in the evening. Sell tickets and refreshments to boost your club funds.
Pub golf – always a classic event for university teams. Create a course leading you around local bars and pubs, make scorecards to be marked at each watering hole, and get sponsored for your efforts. You could even ask the pubs you will visit if they will donate in return for you bringing a team full of thirsty hockey players along.
