PostSubject: CLUB UPDATE - Finances and what we can/can't get this year!   13th May 2011, 10:58

Hi everyone.

Over the first few months of the year it's become apparent that we are going to start needing public liability insurance as the events we do get bigger and more frequent. So, this has obviously let us to getting quotes and will have a large impact on our budgeting for the year. Costs are as follows:

Premium - £285
Excess - £250

So not only do we have the cost of the premium we need to make sure we have the excess in the bank as I can't afford £250 should the worst happen. Now we have a plan to cover the initial premium, and we have JUST enough in the bank for the excess. This will mean however that our spending for the year is done. Sad

So, I would like your thoughts please. We were going to buy a nice stand for our banner (About £100 I think) and samples of the merchandise for shows. As we are these will have to wait. Can we raise funds somehow, we obviously take donations but have had a fantastic response from so many members already so aren't expecting any more at all. Or can we have some sort of fund raising event for the club?

Any ideas/thought/feedback are welcome. We will be getting more quotes but think this is a good figure to start with.

Thanks all,

James.

Have you thought of opening a club store for t-shirts, mugs etc?

A site like http://cafepress.co.uk they look after everything even allows you to create an online shop with your own logo's and stuff.

We've been discussing merchandise over on tM, apparently the quality of the Cafepress products isn't that great though, people have said they would never buy from them again Neutral

No, thats cool - it was just an example - I would prefer to have a company in the UK to handle it rather than having to ship it from the states.

I'm all up for personal recommendations.

I am thinking this could be a winner Rich thumbs up

easy to organise (no booking needed)
we need to find a large boot fare local to us (perfect time of year for them)
all turn up & park together (novelty factor)
and the money is instant, (no faffing about with Pay pal) Wink

More like a summer fate tho?

Car wash
Quiz
Cake Sale
Jumble Sale

Then you can get other things happening?
Might be able to get some belly dancers to help out Wink

Also as far as clothing merch is concerned. i have friends in the business who are alot cheaper Smile just a thought

Yeah a car boot sale could be a good idea. If people are happy to donate the takings to the club. Maybe split it 50/50 so people get something out of it too?

we have some good ideas that I think we could go with....

But, I would say that we need something quick, simple, and minimal effort to sort out and that brings funds in instantly Wink

As for the boot sale idea, I would be happy just to take my 'table' money and give the rest to the club thumbs up

Also, we could just have some sort of normal collection to the club? Wouldn't mind donating an extra £10 or something into the clubs finances even without an event Smile
