Help the cheerleaders fund the costs of competing and travel expenses

A short summary of our project

We are the Essex Flames Cheerleading Club and we are raising £500 to reduce the costs of competition expenses for all Essex Flames members. With our first campaign on Click we managed to raise £360 which will be enough to cover the costs for only some of  us that are going. Our next competition will be in the in the spring next year and we are really excited about this opportunity but we still need your help to support as many members as possible.

Who are We?

I am Amber and I am the fundraising officer for the Essex Flames. My job to help members with the cost of training and going to competitions and raise enough money to support the club with its general expenses . The Essex Flames are a university cheerleading team that compete at two national level competitions each year. We are one of the most popular sports club at the University with more than 300 sign ups each year.

our story

This year we have over 80 members on our teams. We have five teams in total, four of which are competitive. We have achieved excellent results at competitions with our Jazz team being 2nd at the ICC national competition in 2017. 

In addition, we have achieved club gold standard over the last few years and hope to continue our success this year! Moreover, we have gained a sponsorship this year from STA Travel in Chelmsford who have generously given us £600.

Where will the money go?

The money raised will go to covering expenses for our next competition in Manchester in the spring term. We are hoping to cover some of the costs for travelling and accommodation expenses for all our team members. 

Hotel- £60 per night

Travelling- £50 per person

The more money we raise, the more people we can take to the competition with us. Any extra funds raised will go into a pot for competitions in the next season.
