FUNDRAISING & CHARITY WORK
The Saints Southwest TEAM are always up for a challenge... and we are always looking at new ways to help support good and charitable causes.
We have a unique team of coaches who take on challenges each year to raise money for those who need it.
Get in touch if you have a special cause you'd like us to help fundraise for.
As a Community Interest Company, Saints Southwest are always willing to take on yearly challenges to raise money for their chosen charity (chosen annually), from football matches, biking riding, hiking, to tough mudder...
How do Saints Southwest choose their yearly charity?
Charities are chosen on how the money raised can impact the young people and families we work with across the South West the best, or if we get approached by a staff member, someone we work with or a parent/guardian of a child from one of our programmes has a particular charity close to home they'd like us to support.
We understand that schools, youth centres, community organisations and sports clubs rely on financial support. Saints Southwest are proud to be able to help in various ways.
How can Saints Southwest help us? We would listen to your needs and ask why you'd need us to help. We would come up with a plan of action to maximise fundraising opportunities.
Here are a few examples;
Sponsored Penalty Shootout
Beat the Keeper Competition
Sponsored Speed Shot
Challenge Steps Pledge Competition
Social Media Fundraising Campaign
Saints Southwest Coaches Football Match
Supermarket Bag Packing
TACKLE POVERTY PROGRAMME
Saints Southwest work throughout Cornwall, Devon and Somerset delivering various Education, Community and Football Development programmes. Saints Southwest use these sessions as 'drop off hubs'. The items are handed to the Saints Southwest coach, who will then bring the items back to the Saints Southwest office for initial storage.
What to drop off or donate?
Food (which can be stored)
Old Sports/Football Kits
Working on a referral or application basis, Saints Southwest office staff will review all enquiries and then do our very best to deliver the items where they are needed. If we can't help, we will contact or signpost your enquiry to a local food bank or other support organisation.
