Telford Utd Supporters Association had to have look at ways of raising funds, during these Covid times. Something that meant fans, indeed family and friends could get involved with, while stuck indoors with nothing but your smart phone and spending money.
Ideas were few, until it was mentioned that there was an old Easy Fundraising account, and that TUSA could take this account over and try again with it.
Efforts were made to track down the dormant Easy Fundraising account and found that there was a small amount already in it.
Ok, not much to shout about, but we duly set about informing as many people as we could about the Easy Fundraising App via our Twitter page and Facebook page.
Several people signed up, and slowly began to swell the figure.
It works like this…….
When you shop on-line you tend to go straight to your preferred website.
Well, with just one extra click, and that one EXTRA click is important, on the Easy Fundraising App, you type in your favourite store, and it takes you straight there. Then you browse and spend as normal. The only thing is, you’ll be raising funds for TUSA. Funds which are spent on kids Xmas parties, Xmas present donation to the club for when the team visit the kids in hospital, new pads and batteries for the clubs defibrillators, donations for team overnight stays.
So if you’ve always wanted to do something to help the club in any way, albeit indirectly, then what could be better than shopping on-line knowing that a small percentage is donated back to TUSA via your purchase.
Each shopping site will tell you exactly how much will be donated, percentage wise, anything from 0.5% and upwards.
If you don’t see your favourite website to shop at, type it in, you’ll be surprised.
Just to add, if you went straight to your on-line shop and not used the App, you’d still pay the same price with nothing being donated.
It’s been running for just over a year and the total to date is just over £250 with 21 active shoppers using the App. out of 41 registered. And we’d love to get you all involved.
If we can get 100 or more registered, the annual figure would a very welcome steady addition to the funds which TUSA raises.
The launch of this style of fundraising by TUSA is not a short term project. But to continue as part of the ongoing effort to support the club and the senior team in any way it can, which includes the women’s team and all the Junior teams girls and boys, right up to U18’s. Also, ultimately the fans, to put something back to aid their enjoyment of supporting AFC Telford Utd.
