Fundraising

Over the past 10 years Club members have been very successful in securing grants and sponsorship to ensure continued Club development.

Support has come from:

  • Community Club Development Programme (CCDP)
  • Yorkshire Water
  • Sportsmatch
  • Drains Aid
  • Bradford MDC Community Chest
  • Connexions Capacity Building Fund
  • Bactive Sports Cheque Fund
  • Co-operative Community Fund
  • Lord Barnby’s Foundation
  • Sport England Small Grants

Further details of the related projects can be found on the Club Development pages.

The Club is very much a community club voluntarily run by members for members. Although the Club is lucky to draw in external funding it would not be possible without contributions from the Club and its members.

The Club holds a number of events throughout the year such as the Captain’s BBQ and the Annual Dinner. Supporting these events helps raise vital funds to enable the purchase of new boats, oars etc.

The bar is open most evenings and throughout winter and bacon butties are available on a Sunday morning. Profits from each of these all contribute to the larger fundraising pot.

The club also has a range of merchandise available for purchase. Please see the Merchandise page for details.

Members often donate services such as plumbing, building and electrical work in kind to projects.

Supporting the Club in these ways not only ensures the general upkeep of the facilities but enables the purchase of new boats and oars etc.
