Why is Fund Raising important at Islip Bowls Club?

Islip Bowls Club is a self-funded organisation and receives no monies from other agencies, apart from those that we raise ourselves.

The material costs alone of greenkeeping varies between £3,000 and £4,000 a year. There are equipment maintenance and servicing costs to consider too.

Of course, there are the usual bills such as rent, insurance, bills etc to pay and so it goes on….

However, we have our greenkeeper and several dedicated members who work tirelessly to maintain the green in tip top condition. They give hours of their time for free to ensure that the green is ready for you to play on!

We have many fund raising events during the year, including Jumble Sales in Islip Village Hall, Quiz Nights, Race Nights and we always get involved in Thrapston’s Charter Fair.

There are other members who give their time behind the scenes. keeping the wheels running so that Islip Bowls Club can exist. One of those jobs is to apply for grants without which we would not be financially viable. This is why Islip Bowls Club has signed up to www.easyfundraising.org.uk.

It is an easy way for members, friends and families linked to the club to raise funds for the club while shopping on line. Please take a look at the website and sign up to help our cause. You can set up a reminder to donate so that you never miss an opportunity to help raise funds for the club.
