The £100 Challenge
Finally we will have a home for our club, planning permission has been granted to Tonic Health to convert the currently derelict building into a community cafe, and consequently the Spalding based health and wellbeing charity have offered some of the space to the hockey club to install two changing rooms including showers and toilets. Sport England are making a sizeable contribution, together with funding Tonic Health and the club has raised to date. We need YOU to help raise the final bit of funds towards the project – the more money we can raise the higher the standard we can achieve (yes the dream of showers with underfloor heating can become a reality!!!!)
With this in mind we are asking all club members to try and raise £100 and we are going to organise a number of events to help you, so please get involved in as many as you can and also consider organising something as a team to raise funds for operation clubhouse. If each member could raise £100 that would be fantastic and would allow us to have a wonderful new clubhouse ready for the start of next season.
