Sports cash targeted

Sports funding

Wairarapa sports clubs and community groups won't need to rely solely upon the trusty sausage sizzle to raise funds any more, thanks to a funding workshop organised by staff at Sport Wellington Wairarapa.

Tomorrow night, from 6pm, Sports House will host a free workshop entitled "Fundraising 101, Great ways to bring ca$h into your club", which will supplement the work Sport Wellington Wairarapa are doing to support local clubs and associations in being financially sustainable.

Community sport adviser Mark Curr is confident there is enough resource, innovation and passion in the Wairarapa community to raise more than enough money to deliver community sport, "so we have invited a great group of proven fundraisers to show you how you can do it".

The session will feature several speakers who have proven experience in raising funds for community groups.

"We are really pleased with the calibre of speakers that we have been able to attract. Those attending are guaranteed to leave with some great ideas" Curr said.
