A huge thanks to everyone who has signed up and choose Timperley Hockey Club as their local Co-op cause since we were selected in late November 2017. All the 1%'s and pennies really do add up and we are delighted to announce that so far £490 has been raised by Co-op members for THC and our first quarterly payment is on its way !
Still no signed up ? There's still time to sign up and help raise even more funds for THC and boost this amount. Its simple the more people who sign up, and then use their Co-op membership card when they shop the more funds we can raise.
We are using these funds to support the development of our growing army of volunteers that make hockey happen at THC and using the funding to help support the cost of training to #GrowOurOwn.
This week's safeguarding course run at the club is one of the courses we are providing with support from the Co-op's local causes funding. We've now signed up 11 umpires to go on the level 1 course in March and with club and Co-op support we are funding the cost of this training for volunteers to make hockey happen. Investing in our volunteers and supporting them is key to us and showing our support and recognition. The Umpiring training will cost £500+ so you can see how vital external funding is to helping develop our volunteers.
To find out more go to Co-op Local Community Fund . THC will benefit from the Co-op local causes scheme until November 2018 so with your help we aim to raise over £2000 to part fund our #GrowOurOwn volunteer programme.
