Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge
Well done on volunteering to be a team member in the Annual Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge. Your responsibility as a paddler is to have fun, have a great day out, but also to contribute to the funds raised to support the many local and National charities. Obviously, each team tries to raise as much as they can for their nominated charity and the Rotary Charities this event supports. Your target is to generate at least £50 towards that aim. Your team manager will let you know whether it will be via Virgin Money Giving or by the traditional cash collection method. Whichever it is please remember there is no upper limit to what you can raise and for the team that raises the most money, an extra donation will be made to the teams nominated charity by the organising Rotary Clubs.
There are 2 ways of raising sponsorship monies:-
1. Online Sponsorship
Our preferred method is on-line giving, which has proved both popular and successful in previous years. This year it will be operated by PayPal and detailed instructions on using PayPal will be provided to Team Captains together with their confirmation of entry to the event.
Used properly you benefit by being able to keep an eye on the amount your team members are raising and if it is not up to your expectation, increase your fundraising to benefit your charity. It also removes from you the responsibility of collecting the money after the event and allows your friends, who were not able to contribute before the event, to contribute afterwards.
2. Cash Sponsorship
We strongly recommend that money is collected at the time of asking to ensure it is paid.
