During 2012, Support Sport are going to be taking on a number of fundraising initiatives to help support our numerous social causes in the Coventry and Warwickshire area. Have a look at what and how you can get involved in!
We aim to enter a minimum of 5 Fun Runs or Walkathons this year and we are looking at assembling a team of approximately 30 people, with each person responsible for raising at least £50.
The team will also have many fun competitions, where prizes are given, such as best fundraiser, fastest time, Paula Radcliffe award etc, etc.
Soccer 7's is a summer football festival, for young boys and girls football teams to come and have fun and enjoy a competitive but freindly tournament with other teams across the region. It is held at Harbury Lane Recreation Ground, Leamington Spa, CV33 9QB.
So far we have also raised £2159.46 through localgiving.com, a website set up to support community and voluntary organisations, where you can donate to our causes and provide also read about our organisation.
We are currenly looking for a wide range of events, whether it be commercial, charity or anything in between. This is to take our Soccer Shootouts Speedgun and raise money for our causes. We will offer prizes for the winners of each age category and a contribution towars the fate at which we run, so please let us know if we can run it at your fate.
We are now running Birthday Parties for children, adults, and also parties or team building days for organisations! Prices on these can vary depending on numbers and the type of party so please get in touch to find out.
Peel 2 Save is a card that offers lots of local deals around Kenilworth, Leamington and Warwick, which we are selling at £10 each. £5 of this goes to Peel2Save and £5 goes to SupportSport, but the offers are well worth buying, i have bought one myself and allready doubled my investment!
Please remember that these initiatives are all for local good causes and each one really can make a difference to the work we do! So rather than using a commercial organisation, choose to become apart of something good in 2012.
We are open to offers over fundraising ideas and initiatives from other individuals or organisations, and would welcome your input! Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Joe Graham on 07801 597666.

Support Sport have been invited to this marvelous opportunity by The Heart of England Community Foundation, where localgiving.com hosts our web page and also provides members of the public and other organisations to donate towards our causes!
Our web page that is hosted by the charity is http://localgiving.com/charity/supportsportprojects and at present they are offering an Xmas Matchfund where they match any donations made to us by 100% and also give Giftaid on top of this!
Local giving are a ltd company set up by a secret millionairre in order to provide better support for the community and voluntary sector, especially since the economic downturn and cuts have effected the resources and provision that can be offered for a variety of groups that benefit from the services!

So far we have raised £774 from the match fund and we are targetting £2500 (to continue our community work and deliver projects in more deprived estates in Coventry and Warwickshire!) before the £125,000 put aside by localgiving runs out! This is looking to be well before the planned Xmas day as the programme has now become very competitive!
Perhaps you would like to donate to Support Sport if you enjoy our services, if you are involved in local sport, or even if you like the social objectives that we are involved with. If you would like to make a donation to help us reach our target, then please click the button below.
Lets make sure our area gets its fair share of the opportunities that this can provide!!
