Over the years we have raised funds in many ways. Apart from our regular and very well supported Quiz Nights, we have held a Virtual Balloon Race, Race Nights, Curry and Chinese Nights, Bingo nights, Christmas Quizzes and Raffles. Never ones to take the easy options, members of the Trust Board and members have also completed a number of sponsored walks to local Clubs in time for kick off – including Colchester United, Gillingham, Charlton Athletic and Dagenham & Redbridge, raising many thousands of pounds for ourselves and our partner charities, which have primarily included Little Havens and Havens Hospices. A few years back, fund raising Chairman, Alan Perry, also completed a personal sponsored swim raising funds for the Trust.
Trust membership fees pay for postage of newsletters and our inevitable overheads of accountancy, stationary etc. so we need to arrange ever increasing amounts to pay for our commitments to the Youth Team etc.
Two popular fund raisers that we’d like to build on are our Quid a Goal scheme and the 100 Club which are explained in further detail below.
QUID A GOAL
This year the bulk of the proceeds will be donated to the Danny Heath’s Youth Academy and his Department to help purchase much needed equipment.

THE 100 CLUB
This scheme gives you the opportunity of winning a weekly draw for approx. £35.00 and £350 on the draw immediately prior to Christmas. The cost is £5.00 per calendar month which we require paid to us by direct debit.
