For our annual presentation evening, we sold entry wristbands and donated all money to our uniform fund. We also ran a raffle with prizes that had been donated from parents, athletes and local businesses. This was a good start to our fundraising.
With the money raised from awards evening, and donations from families and friends, we reached our first £1,000.
While training, coaching and helping with fundraisers, in their spare time one of our athletes/coaches began making cheer bows, bow keyrings, bow clips and bow baubles to sell. She took out the money it cost for her to make the items, and all profit went into our uniform fund to help boost our target.
A huge thank you to Jark Recruitment for our £500 sponsorship towards our new uniforms. This helps us reach our £3,000 and is greatly appreciated.
The head coaches of Sussex Tornados made the decision to put out a post on social media and invite all ex-tornados to return for one last time to compete at Legacy Just Believe in February. The subs from the athletes of Flashback every week were put straight into the uniform fund. This was a huge push each week.
We attended fetes through-out the year making our stall better and showcasing our routines. We ran tombola's and games on our stall, and every penny was donated straight into our uniform fund.
With more cash donations, along with fete collections, we reached our £4,000!!
STC hosted our very own quiz night at the Empress Bar in Littlehampton for everyone to attend. We raised an amazing £450 on just one night. Thank you to everyone that attended, and Well Done to our winners!!
We had lots of teddies donated from athletes and parents, so we gave these out and asked athletes to run a 'Guess the name of the teddy' from home. All they needed to do was ask friends and family to choose a name of their choice for the bear, pay £1 to enter, and the name was drawn at the end. Whoever's teddy name was pulled, won the bear. Each bear that was taken home, we had £20 returned after the draw. In total, we had around £200 raised!!
Coach Jordan and Coach Carley gave up their weekend and ran private tumbling sessions every hour. Every pound raised for this was donated straight to the uniform fund. Raising £170 between them, we hit our 1/3!!
