We are always looking at ways to raise funds for the club. If you have any ideas for ways in which we can raise funds please let Rob Freeman know. Similarly, there are various community funds available from major employers to assist clubs like Etwall Eagles. If you are aware that your employer runs such a scheme, please let us know with any info about who we need to get in touch with.
The club participates in the EasyFundRaising scheme. This is a FREE service where
you can shop with your favourite online stores and at no extra cost raise funds
for the club.
For example, spend £25 with WH Smith and 3.5% will be donated. You will have raised
£0.88, at no extra cost to your purchase. Make any purchase from Amazon and 2.5%
will be donated. Insure your car with Direct Line and raise £35.00, or purchase
a mobile phone from O2 and earn £17.50, and so on.
British Gas Promotional Scheme
Dear Members, Parents and Friends of Etwall Eagles Swimming Club,
We are one of 6 clubs in the East Midlands ASA Region who, along with 6 clubs in Scotland, have been selected to take part in a pilot promotional scheme for British Gas. You may or may not be aware that British Gas sponsors British Swimming, providing valuable funding at the elite level, and through the ASA to clubs and swimmers at all levels. British Gas naturally hopes that this association will promote their company and increase their market share.
To do this more directly they are piloting the scheme described in the attached leaflet... Basically if you switch your duel fuel energy to British Gas, and quote the code ETEA (for Etwall Eagles) when you do so, British Gas will donate £150 to Etwall Eagles Swimming Club. Apologies to those, especially in the more rural areas, for whom duel fuel is not an option, the scheme only covers this.
As a club this could be a great benefit to us, allowing us to keep your payments to us as low as possible, I would also hope that if you are going to take up this offer there would be a benefit to you in lower fuel prices and there are several well known websites which can help you find out whether British Gas can offer you a better deal than your present supplier.
The offer is not restricted, so please pass on the information to family, friends, neighbours and colleagues, anyone can participate, as long as they quote ETEA as the beneficiary of the £150. We consider ourselves very lucky to have been invited to be one of the pilot clubs in this scheme and hope to be able to benefit before it is rolled out to other clubs across the country - if a success.
As part of the participation in the pilot I am being asked to provide feedback on the scheme to East Midlands ASA. I would welcome any comments, supportive or critical, maybe many of you are already British Gas customers, maybe you cannot take advantage of duel fuel, or maybe you have checked on prices and British Gas cannot offer you a good deal.
Any feedback to me at
would be welcome. I am keen for this to be a success, as it will bring money into the club; and also to justify our selection as a pilot club. Please support us if at all possible, or if not let me know why.
Thankyou, Rob Feeeman, Chair Etwall Eagles Swimming Club
