Greg Baker presents on Saints Foundation’s fundraising strategy
Saints Foundation’s Big Bike Challenge
As part of the expert panel on ‘Fundraising’, Saints Foundation will present their fundraising strategy, with a specific focus on the Foundation’s Big Bike Challenge. The Foundation has been delivering these bike challenges for ten years, with hundreds of fans now have ridden to or from home or away games in support of Saints Foundation, in so doing raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to support the foundation’s work – the last one, in May 2019, covering 260 miles from Huddersfield Town’s John Smiths Stadium. In 2020 Saints Foundation will be running two different challenges, one from Brighton (70 miles) and one from Bule in Switzerland, which is the birthpace of the club’s former owner, Markus Liebherr (600 miles). Saints Foundation is the charity of the club, and exists to help transform lives in and around Southampton by supporting people of all ages and abilities to fulfill their potential to be more involved, healthier and empowered members of the community. The Foundation currently employs over 60 full-time members of staff and turn over just under £3 million per year.
