Roller derby can be an expensive sport to play with the amount of equipment, uniform and travel that is required. To offset some of the costs for our members, we currently cover the cost of each player’s first scrim shirt when they progress to playing their first game with us! We fund this through a mixture of fundraising events, EasyFundraising donations, and sponsorship from local businesses.
If you’d be interested in supporting the league, please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as we have a number of sponsorship packages available and can offer various forms of advertisement for your business in return for sponsorship.
You can also support us while going about your online shop – just head to EasyFundraising and select Durham Roller Derby as your cause. A percentage of each sale will be donated directly to the league at no extra cost to yourself. Donations are available from pretty much every online shop you can think of and you can even install a handy donation reminder on your phone and laptop so you never miss a donation.
We’ve raised over £500 through donations since setting up our account in 2019. This currently funds scrim shirts for our new skaters but in the past we have used this to fund team travel to away games.
