This year we are asking Quins Season Ticket holders and members to put forward charities that they are involved with for a matchday collection at the Stoop. We want this year's collections to be for charities that <strong>you</strong> have chosen to support.
This is your chance to help a cause close to your heart - and watch your club at the same time! Most charities raise between £600 and £1,000 on the day, so it is very worthwhile few hours work.
The ground collections are very simple. We invite one charity per match to bring ten volunteers (plus buckets, stickers, etc.) to collect money as people arrive and leave the ground. The charity will also have space in the programme and the club gives these volunteers ten tickets so they can watch the match in between collecting.
During the season, there will be three ground collections for the British Paralympic Association, Quins official charity, and one for the Richard Langhorn Trust. We are currently asking the players for two suggestions and the rest of the matches will be open to Season Ticket Holders and Members recommended registered charities.
To register your chosen charity for this opportunity, please send us a letter from the charity with all their details and information with a covering letter stating your name and Season Ticket / membership number.
The closing date for applications for ground collections this season is 30th September 2004.
We will try to accommodate all charities who contact us, however should there be more charities than available matchdays, the Quins Charity Team will consider all applications and allocate charities accordingly.
Simple rules apply:
- The charity must be registered
- The charity must bring along up to ten volunteers, buckets, etc
- The charity are responsible for the monies collected on the day
Letters should be sent to:
