Fundraising


Building a sustainable funding model

Income is mainly generated from our retail operations, but to ensure we have a sustainable model, this is supplemented with Donations, Grants and Contracts. We have already been successful in applying for Grants, running contracts and raising small scale donations.  This process is currently being formalised into the organisation, at a group and local level.

Gloucester

In September 2013, Sports Traider opened its first ‘partner’ site with Sofab CIC in Gloucester town centre. The store is run by father and son team Chris and Dale Rawlings with a team of dedicated volunteers. See more about Sofab Sports and our Gloucester outlet here.

Corporate Sponsors


We are keen to identify corporate sponsors who as Founding Partners, share the Sports Traider vision, can align with the aims and outcomes of the charity, and are in a position to support the expansion plans of introducing the programme throughout your local community and the UK by the end of 2018. To achieve this we need to take the concept from its current stage to being ready for wider rollout. Sports Traider now requires sponsorship to enable it to:

  • Formalise the operating processes of the current retail and recycling activities
  • Establish the management team to plan and deliver growth
  • Build a sustainable funding model
  • Add other model retail outlets to the chain
