Tuktuk Day 40

It is interesting but at the same time sad the posts that have got the most traction and comments on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are about sponsorship and fundraising. It is evident that 99% of us do not support clubs awash with Saudi or American money and that for every Newcastle United there are one hundred Chorleys, Tauntons, Burys etc.

I was pleased therefore to receive a fundraising guide from Rich Stock at Clubforce. He calls it the “Definitive Guide to Club Fundraising” and it is absolutely worth studying if you are at the helm of a club and even more so if your role is commercial.

It is a 24 page downloadable guide crammed with ideas and recommendations that have been proven over many years and with many clubs. You can download the guide here at no cost. I trust it is valuable and I will welcome any and all feedback.

That being said, I am a great believer in that nobody has a unique claim to knowledge and I would be very happy to read about your fundraising successes and failures. Fire away.

As always, I hope that you will consider a donation however small to support FC Deportivo Galicia and/or Prostate Cancer UK If everybody chipped in £1 I would easily hit my target of £10,000 and life would be easier in West London whilst the charity continued their great work. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can. If you can’t you can still help massively by sharing this page about the work of Prostate Cancer. Thanks.
