Fundraising – Sponsorship

City of Oxford Swimming Club offers the opportunity for anyone aged seven to seventy to achieve their potential in swimming whether at Club, County, District, National or even International level. The Club is seeking sponsorship to enable it to continue as the largest and most successful competitive swimming club in Oxfordshire and with a particular focus during the next year in raising funds to equip the new pool in Blackbird Leys to competition standard.

The Club strives to provide the best possible opportunities for swimming of all abilities and social backgrounds.  To achieve this whilst maintaining affordable training fees, outside funding is required for additional coaching, increased pool time, repairs and replacement of equipment, competition software, transportation to galas, promotional material and training camps.

There are several ways in which we are seeking help as follows:

1. EasyFundraising:

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be collecting free donations for City of Oxford Swim Club?

There are over 3,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury’s – it doesn’t cost you a penny extra!

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…

1. Head to  OUR CAUSE  and join for free.

2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.

3. After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and City of Oxford Swim Club will be really grateful for your donations.

Thank you for your support.
