GB Athletes making your donation go further.

 

HELP GB ATHLETES RAISE £1M FOR GOOD CAUSES:

£407K raised so far 01/11/2017

Legacy 300 was established in 2012, to generate funds for good causes (£407K net so far) and GB Olympians (£102K so far). The Olympians host well received, unique, VIP experiences in Track Cycling, Rowing and White Water Rafting, see www.legacy300.com.

 

ALL the GB Athletes that have delivered these experience days, were ALREADY committed to donating time and memorabilia to their chosen good causes. Legacy 300 was a platform which offered ALL good causes the opportunity to generate funds from the athletes and enable the public to donate to charity and also directly fund the participating athletes. 

From the beginning, good causes have been invited to auction of places on these days, we do charge an entry fee for these experiences and this does pay for one full time member of staff, (yes that's me) venues, equipment, event staff, funds participating athletes’ careers and the other components that help make these days special for the participants. Crucially, good causes only buy a place once they have sold it and have sold it at a profit.

 

During 353 separate auctions, this entry has been multiplied many times over, we have raised £407K net for good causes.  Yet, because we need to charge an entry fee, around 90% of good causes want these places donated. My word, you don’t know how frustrating that is.

No logical business argument will ever be listened to and after four years you kinda get the feeling that they ain't going to budge. But I am a very cussed individual and thankfully so are the athletes involved in this. 

 

This is where we need your help. If you are planning to give to charity this month, please take on board how the GB Athletes can make your donation go a whole lot further as we have done on 353 separate occasions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DONATIONS, DONATIONS, DONATIONS:

That's the problem and the solution.

  • If you give charity £100 they receive £100.

  • A £100 entry fee on a Legacy 300 experience day will multiply at auction. (We have 353 separate examples of this.)

  • On average that would reach £275.

  • We cannot guarantee the actual amount as every auction is different but since 2012 good causes have made £2.76 on every £1 spent on an experience day entry fee.

HOW WE WILL RUN THIS:

 

  • When making a donation please state which good cause you want the experience day presented to.

  • For every £150 received through crowdfunding we will draw out a name from the donors who have got us to that figure and their good cause will be donated a place on a WWR or Rowing day.

  • Buying an experience day place through this appeal, will generate a separate fund to fund equivalent days. Once a place is funded, we do a draw to target the donated place. (Surplus into general fund).

  • We will give you updates on Twitter @BritishAthletes and www.facebook.com/legacy300 as to how your donation has gone.

  • Any partial amount left over, will subsidise a place, again we will draw for the recipient good cause.

 

Please e-mail david@partyforthepodium.com or ring 0117 969 2452 (office hours) if you have any queries.

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

 

  • £10-£25 donations to help crowdfund places.

  • Buy an experience day at retail prices, to give as a gift and help crowdfund the good causes.

  • Spread the word to those you know are into these sports or are supporters of your chosen good cause.

  • You can also donate places directly to your chosen good causes for them to auction off in your name. Please contact Legacy 300 separately to arrange this
