Sponsorship of Team Members
The primary objective of Dragon Boat Racing is to have fun while fundraising for charity and therefore each team member will be expected to raise sponsorship monies. Half of the proceeds of the event will go to CancerWise and the other half to charities supported by the Rotary Club of Chichester Priory.
CancerWise is a Chichester based drop-in centre dedicated to helping anyone with cancer, together with their families and carers in their day to day lives. They provide clients with a wide range of counselling, complementary therapies and emotional support.

The Dragon Boat Challenge has a dedicated JustGiving page where participants can easily set up their own sponsorship pages.
Using Gift Aid means that for every pound donated, we get an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue – helping your donation to go further. This means that £10 can be turned into £12.50 just so long as donations are made through Gift Aid. Imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn’t cost you a thing!
So, if you want your fund raising and sponsorship donations to go further, please Gift Aid it.
