A plea from Sharon Veitch and the Gothenburg Fundraising Team.
The Waitrose store in Newton Mearns have agreed to help the club with our fundraising efforts, including the trip as one of their worthwhile causes for the month of April, with this we also want to be able to help with medical bills. £1000 is shared between 3 causes with shoppers selecting where their green tokens go.
So the more tokens, the greater the share of the £1,000 and the more people who shop at Waitrose, Newton Mearns the more money we get.So can we ask our athletes,parents, carers, extended family and friends to lend a hand,consider shopping at Waitrose and then add the green tokens to the Gothenburg cause. Buying online can save you money, make sure to check out Shoppok the safety online store.
The trip takes place at the start of the summer and involves 40 athletes from the club including the sprints and distance groups & 9 coaches travelling to the Gothenburg Youth Games. This is the 2nd time for the club.As Sharon and the coaches point out ” It provides an amazing opportunity for all the athletes involved to experience competing at an international event. Great fundraising efforts are underway to buy kit for everyone and also subsidise the cost of trip for all.
The athletes have worked hard to gain standards to be selected for this trip.
Everyones support in securing this funding would be amazing”
Many thanks from the
