Live Race Nights Suspended In the UK Well the new normal has certainly taken a few turns in the last couple of weeks and the new six people rule has certainly put a hold on any race night activity for the time being. Many of our customers are now having to postpone their proposed race nights until either later in the year or until 2021 which of course means many are running short of funds. Zoom Entertainment Race Nights and Charity Fundraising Customers just wishing to have a social evening are doing so by having a virtual race night via Zoom etc and this is proving to be both popular and enjoyable. A few customers have been in touch to say that although they used fun money or used a points system they made a donation to their favourite charity by asking their friends to [...]

10 Fundraising Ideas for Sports Clubs To Raise Money 2020 Fundraising isn't easy but it doesn't need to be a gigantic event which would be a headache to organise. Remember the old acronym KISS - Keep It Simple and Short - often kid's and youth clubs struggle for funding and with rugby, football, and hundreds of other popular and niche grassroots sports clubs will testify, sometimes the simple ideas raise the most money. Team leaders, members, family and friends can be your quick win key when fundraising at sports clubs, so we've put together a Top 10 Fundraising Ideas agenda that won't make you sweat half as much as when you're on the playing field! 1 - Fundraising at a few quid per person - Training Night Tasters for friends We've put this at the top as it's not well advertised that we have noticed when we visit venues to host fundraising Race Nights. Whichever sports venue we have visited we lookout for club promotions with a dual purpose; our favourite which we remember is to bring along a pal for £3 to join in a training session as a taster and brief introduction to the sport. Held once a month the regularity is reassuring if your buddy can't make it this month. The double benefit is that your pal may just be interested in joining your team to swell the club coffers. 2 - Financing Your Sports Shirt Printing - Annual Sponsorship This is a common way that most [...]

Zoom Lockdown Charity Fundraising UK Horse Race Night Events

By |2020-06-10T21:20:07+01:00June 10th, 2020|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Zoom Lockdown Charity Fundraising UK Horse Race Night Events

Zoom Lockdown Charity Fundraising UK Horse Race Nights Another month into the lockdown in the UK and even with the slight easing of restrictions nothing much has changed in the fundraising sector we supply. We made the decision in April 2020 not to furlough the company or staff as I felt we could be of some use to customers trying to have small fundraisers or just trying to have some family fun using Zoom with our Virtual Race Night Lockdown Downloads. Race Night Lockdown Family Fun Virtual Online It was a great decision as we are hearing from customers telling us about their race night and this is one of the reasons I decided to give away ten free race night packs to customers who got in touch to tell us what they were doing or were going to do. In our July 2020 blog we will tell you about some more of our winners, Gary Fox, Ben ONeill and Gary Kirton.  Google Meet versus Zoom - Video Conferencing Software in 2020 From this feedback Zoom is by far the most popular way of different household meet ups, but coming up on the rails strong (excuse the racing puns) is Google Meet who realised they were falling behind and had to get the whip out. Virtually every customer is making a donation to charity with their nights regardless of whether or not it is fundraising or family and friends fun and with this in mind we at Race Night Services [...]

Lockdown Race Nights - Horse Race Downloads Friends and Family Entertainment What the world is going through at the moment with Covid-19 is horrible and here in the UK is no exception. As a company that provides fundraising materials via our Race Night Services we are fully aware of the impact that it is having on this important sector. What we are finding is that people are using our virtual race night downloads for both fundraising and for fun entertainment while in lockdown. COMPETITION - FREE FUNDRAISING PACKS - 10 TO BE WON (SCROLL DOWN) Lockdown Virtual Fun Ideas - Online Family Fun Things To Do Here are a couple of examples of what people are doing. Fundraising Online - NHS and Charities With a lot of people making a donation to the justgiving.com website and funds going to the NHS link. Get everybody who is taking part to link up to Zoom / Google Hangouts / Facebook / Skype etc. The person who has made the download acts as the host for the evening and works out the timings and the payouts. Each person to donate £10 for taking part, for instance 25 people over 10 households brings in £250. Donate £50 to the NHS this leaves you £200 in prize money or £25 a race if showing 8 races. Each person bets £1 per race  on a horse number 1 to 8 (remember you can give the runners fun names in advance if you want, but the commentary [...]
