Pitch Replacement Project - Pitch 18
City of Peterborough Hockey Club have just announced the launch of "Pitch 18" - the campaign to raise at least £100,000 towards the cost of the new pitch surface replacement in April 2018.
The idea is that everyone in the club can contribute in some way - whether by a donation big or small, by contacting former members of the club to ask for donations, by talking to parents of juniors who might wish to donate, by helping through a fundraising activity, by offering a loan, or by obtaining sponsorship or donations from businesses.
Adam Drake and Sue McNaughton have already agreed to be part of a small team who will lead the project, and we are looking for 3 or 4 other people to join Adam in a small committee to make sure we maximise every opportunity in a coordinated fashion.
If you would like to be involved and feel you have contacts/skills which would help please let Jane Wilson or Adam know as soon as possible.
This fundraising started at the Presentation Night on 6 May, where money raised from the raffle went in to kick start the fund with a total raised of £809 for the cause. In addition, pledges were taken on the night for initial donations to the fund, and an amazing total of just over £2,000 was pledged, with amounts ranging from £10 to £1,000 - proving the point that every little counts, everyone can join in and we are blessed with some very generous supporters. We also had several offers of businesses to approach and a couple of people interested in fundraising.
City of Peterborough HC Chairman Jane Wilson said after the Awards evening
It's a hugely exciting project for all of us and I hope all our members and supporters will continue to embrace it. We'll continue to offer everyone as many ways as we can come up with to get involved.
This page is intended to be a home for updates on how fundraising is progressing, as well to provide information on how members and supporters can contribute to the efforts.
