My name is Sarah Clark. I am a former judo player and 3x Olympian. I won Gold at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. I have now retired from international competition and my attention is focused on developing grassroots sport, judo and working with young people facing disadvantage in mentoring programmes throughout Scotland. I am writing on behalf of EdinburghJudo based at St. Margaret’s House on London Road.
EdinburghJudo is an established, successful judo club offering coaching for children and adults of all abilities, from grassroots and recreational, through to junior and senior internationals. Sally Conway, a member of EdinburghJudo and coached by our Head Coach, Billy Cusack, recently won Scotland’s first ever-Olympic medal for judo, a BRONZE in Rio. In addition, five members of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Judo Team are EdinburghJudo athletes and four out of five EdinburghJudo players won medals at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
We are looking to raise funds at our Annual Christmas Party on Saturday 3rd December 2016. We will run a raffle on the evening of our party and we are looking to offer some fantastic prizes to our members. Can you offer a prize for our raffle please? We’d appreciate a donation of service, a gift card, voucher, merchandise, day tickets or passes. Your donation would help towards fundraising to upgrade our facilities so that children and members have a changing and shower area along with a social area to feel comfortable in, meet new people and interact with others.
Any donations will be publicly acknowledged at our event and a note placed in our program. Most of our members live in close proximity of the club and we believe that your business will benefit from the community goodwill generated by your kind donation.
If anyone is interested in longer-term sponsorship and links on our website, please get in touch. To contact me or to learn more about our club, please use the information listed below. So that we can better plan our event, would you kindly let us know your decision by Monday 28th November 2016?
Thank you for your consideration of our request, and we look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
