CORONAVIRUS APPEAL:

HELP GB ATHLETES RAISE £1M FOR GOOD CAUSES:

£501K raised so far 10/03/2020

Legacy 300 was established in 2012, to generate funds for good causes (£501K net so far) at no cost to Charity. The Olympians host well received, unique, VIP experiences in Track Cycling, Rowing and White Water Rafting, see the photo albums www.facebook.com/legacy300

  • This has been done mainly at auction, which sees the entry fees multiplied.

  • Participants on these days have paid for the entry fees and donated £501K to hundreds of good causes.

  • Good causes never have to buy places from us, even if it does not sell at auction

MARCH 2020 THE IMPACT AND HOW YOU CAN HELP

Charities and community groups across the UK are working hard to offset the social and economic impact caused by the measures to stop the spread of Coronavirus,

 

1) DONATE The Athletes and Legacy 300 are encouraging those who can to donate time to local initiatives or any financial help to the national appeal https://nationalemergenciestrust.org.uk/coronavirus/ or to any initiative local to you 

2) SINCE 2012 WE HAVE RAISED £501K AND THIS IS YOU CAN WORK WITH US TO INCREASE THAT AMOUNT

Reserve a place on a GB Athlete Experience Day via here and then make a direct donation to the cause you wish to support.

  • We are looking to deliver these around the country when safe to do so. Just register via the Online Shop.

  • Previous examples of these days can be found on the photo albums www.facebook.com/legacy300 

  • Don't worry about the entry fee just yet, please make the donation though.

Crowdfund future places to help ongoing fundraising by your chosen charities in 2020 and 2021

  • Last time we did this, the average £10 donation crowdfunded one place to create a £240 donation at auction.

  • During 591 separate auctions, this entry has been multiplied many times over, we have raised £501K net for good causes at no cost to them .

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

  • A £100 entry fee on a Legacy 300 experience day will multiply at auction. (We have 591 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.

  • 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 SEND DECLARATIONS OF SUPPORT IN THE FIRST INSTANCE:

Please e-mail david@partyforthepodium.com or ring 07866 316 228 (office hours) with contact details and declarations of likely support (see below). We aim to get the Crowdfunding page up as soon as possible, so no money or bank details yet.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

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

  • 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
