How we use your Donations
Hawcoat Park Sports Club has full charitable status. It depends on income from membership subscriptions, events, and donations.
2017 has been an exciting year for the club. The asset transfer of the former Thorncliffe School playing fields behind Hoops has completed. That means that the club now fully owns and operates this piece of land, unlike the main sports ground which is still owned by BAE Systems, but managed by the club. Whilst this is fantastic news, it has resulted in some unavoidable one-off costs, in particular, for the erection of fencing all round the site. The club will maintain this additional land with no increase in site staff.
The Board has also committed to refurbishing the changing rooms during 2018, including extending the womens’ changing rooms. This will require a lot of money, and as much volunteer effort as possible. This work is required to bring the facilities up to more modern standards, and in particular to enable more women to participate in sports at Hawcoat Park.
Members and non-members now have option to donate via the website. The club can claim Gift Aid on donations from UK taxpayers, which it cannot do on subscriptions or payments for services. The Board can make really good use of any money that is donated in this way. It enables improvements to take place that simply cannot be funded by the subscriptions alone.
