British Dodgeball has confirmed a new national partnership with sport service GiveToLocal, set to benefit our clubs across the UK. GiveToLocal enables community sport clubs to connect to donors, sponsors and the business community. And its user-friendly application offers clubs an effective platform and system of support to deliver sustainable fundraising all year round.
In 2021 GiveToLocal is working with 21 sports — including dodgeball — and its mission is to generate £10m of additional income for community sport each year. Ben Hoyle, MD of British Dodgeball, said:
“British Dodgeball is delighted to be partnering with GiveToLocal and we’re looking forward to achieving great things together in 2021. The last year has been extremely challenging for community sport and it’s been no different for dodgeball. GiveToLocal’s user-friendly, fully supported fundraising platform provides our clubs with the perfect opportunity to secure additional funding at a time when they need it most. Working together I think we can make a significant and positive difference.”
GiveToLocal’s service will be available to all clubs affiliated to British Dodgeball and it is hoped that community dodgeball clubs across the country will engage with an organisation committed to supporting the sport at every level. As the conduit between clubs and additional income streams, GiveToLocal encourages donors and sponsors to make a positive difference.
By pledging as little as £3 per month donors can directly support their community clubs safe in knowledge that every penny goes to the club. In return they can also receive benefits linked to local businesses.
“I’ve been talking to the guys at British Dodgeball for a number of weeks now and it’s clear that we have a shared passion for community sport,” said Colin Stromsoy, Director Of Strategic Partnerships at GiveToLocal.
“There is so much enthusiasm for enabling positive change and helping clubs come through such a challenging period. Dodgeball is a sport on the rise and at GiveToLocal we want to be a part of that exciting journey during the next few years.
“But dodgeball is no different to any other sport in 2021 in terms of needing support to maintain its position at the heart of local communities. That’s where GiveToLocal can help. Our partnership with British Dodgeball can make a positive difference and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”
