Ballinderry GAC has inspired them to create a youth engagement initiative, focussing on activity, connection and togetherness to help improve the wellbeing of their younger members. They wanted to encourage all the young people in their catchment area to come and use their facilities and enjoy each other’s company. Their crowd of 65 supporters successfully raised £11,320 and an estimated £480 in Gift Aid. This included a £5,000 boost from Sport Northern Ireland’s Project Re-Boot: Activate fund which is helping clubs recover from the effects of the pandemic and keep their community active.
Rathfriland Boxing Club wanted to Rebuild & re-energise membership volunteers & supporters to offer an inclusive rural sports programme for local children and young people with their Crowdfunder Project. They raised a massive £26,100 from a range of 68 supporters.
Garvagh Phoenix Volleyball Club ran their Crowdfunder to help for weekly sessions for Juniors and Female Adults to increase participation levels within the club, due to inactivity over the past 18 months we have seen their numbers deplete severely, due to lack of numbers the club can not provide these new alternative sessions due to lack of funds within the club, this project has helped to not only introduce more people to volleyball into Garvagh Phoenix but also increased the participation levels of people in the area and ultimately strengthened volleyball in the area and offer exit routes from school to club level. They raised £4,030 with 28 supporters in 47 days!
