With the WGBC formally established we have put in place provisions for all UWBC old boys/girls to give something back to your old university rowing club. Membership is entirely free however we ask all UWBC graduates to do a voluntary donation of at least £10 per year. The funds collected through the donations will be used for two reasons:
- To make the finances available to the UWBC to purchase new equipment or facilities. The vast majority of funds collected will be used for this.
- A small amount of money will be used to help pay for the annual registration of the Warwick Graduate Association Boat Club to British Rowing.
Any member of the WGBC can race at any ARA rowing event and independently enter an alumni crew. In addition, all members (on request) will be added to the alumni email distribution list, thus receiving important updates from the UWBC and invitation to the annual rowing club ball and various other social events.
As WGBC membership grows year on year it is the eventual aim that the UWBC will never again be short of club funds. The donations will assist the club in funding coaching and the purchase of new equipment to allow UWBC to compete at the very highest level of the sport. You are kindly asked NOT TO WAIT but to immediately set up your annual 'standing order'. £10 is a very small amount; however, if everyone contributes and as the fund matures this will become a major source of funding for the UWBC.
The contribution amount is purely voluntary and any amount of money will be very much appreciated. One off donations are obviously more than welcome however we prefer that your donation is set up as an annual 'standing order' (that does not expire), the date of the first payment can be any date that suits you. If you use online internet banking this can very easily be set up in a similar way to doing a one off payment (please note this is a 'standing order' and not a 'direct debit').
£10 is only a suggested amount, we currently have yearly donations ranging from £5 to £200 so please give as much or as little as you feel appropriate.
Set up the standing order either through your online banking using the details below or by handing this document, printed and completed, to your bank.
Please then complete the below form.
