Generous donations from the above lovelies means we have smashed through our  target with 5 days remaining.  This doesn’t mean we should stop though – if you have yet to pay your fees or you want a hoody, tee-shirt, walking stick, free training in Bude, music lessons etc, then making a pledge is the way to go.  Funds in excess of the target will be spent on camp equipment, such as tables or chairs or training equipment.

A huge thank you to all of you who have donated so far, on behalf of everyone who uses the marquee, many thanks.  I will make sure that a printed and framed certificate of thanks is hosted prominently in our marquee.

Other donors responsible for making this happen by giving their money, you little beauties:

Sajla, Tom, Louise, Fiona, John, Elaine, Joe, Andrew, Hannah, Alan, Julian, Steward, David, Jack, Niall, Mark, Tony, Kevin, Haydn, Mike and Tracy, me, Joanne, Tanya, Nicola, Paul, Tim – I will update with other names – if you’ve donated and not got a name check here, let me know.

Donating

Simply click here to visit our Crowdfunding project, have a look at the 3 minute, and hang on until the end for some lightweight humour, then make your pledge by Paypal or GoCardless. GoCardless will not collect the money from your account unless the project reaches its target. Paypal users will have their donation refunded in the sad event of us not making our goal.

Please remember you are donating for the common good, and if you’ve ever been to camp, I bet you have sheltered under my cranky old gazebo in the past.  That’s now dead, and we need a proper replacement.

Another pledge from Joe Rowley, and money passed over the table from the man who would be my father in law, if I bothered to marry his daughter.  He’ll need to pay a lot more for that!

Thanks Paul and Mary West, and Joe Rowley for your continued support.

Last night I received a very generous £50 donation, cash in hand, from a couple of friends from Denham.  Mike and Tracy run Ambush Security Systems, based in Ickenham.  If you need home security, call 01895 632688.  Thanks Mike and Tracy!

Today I also received a £75 donation from a club parent, which is absolutely amazing, bringing the total from the club parents so far to a massive £165!    Thanks Jo and Tanya.

We also have a number of other pledges waiting in the wings, totaling at least £130, and if they come to pass, that takes use over the £1000 limit.  Thanks again.

The Reward – Basics & Included for £60

IN a nutshell, this reward offers you a hoody plus a £35 reward plus a £25 reward plus the £7.50 reward.  For example, you could have the hoody, teeshirt, training fees and badge!  If you bought a hoody and tee-shirt last year, you spent £45, so this deal compares very favourably indeed, as you also get a badge and your training fees.

  • Shelter from the rain and continued training.
  • Circular embroidered Martial Arts Summer Camp Supporter badge with our adopted logo (above).  This will be a standard club badge size, and you could sew it on to your tracksuit, dobok or gi, or frame it and hang it up in the little boy’s room.  Wear it with pride!
  • A reward from £25 list – (training fees waived, or music lessons or save a life training)
  • MASC 2014 hoody embroidered with the MASC logo (above) and the wording Martial Arts Summer Camp Bude 2014.  These hoodies are the Fruit of the Loom brand.  Colours will be by vote on the Facebook page.

Options

In addition to the basics and included, you can pick one from the following:

  • A refurbished walking stick, complete with MASC 2014 and your initials branded on to it by me, using a pyrography pen.   Feel free to request different lettering, but no essays please
  • MASC 2014 tee shirt embroidered with the MASC logo (above) and the wording Martial Arts Summer Camp Bude 2014.  These teeshirts are the higher value Fruit of the Loom brand.  Colours will be by vote on the Facebook page.
  • 6 free training sessions at Atlantic Taekwondo, Bude.  This is equivalent to £24 of training fees, great value when you consider the basics and included, above.

  • £303 of £1500 target donated (22%)
  • 22 days remaining to pledge and meet target, or the project fails and we receive nothing.

The Reward – Basics

  • Shelter from the rain and continued training.
  • Circular embroidered Martial Arts Summer Camp Supporter badge with our adopted logo (above).  This will be a standard club badge size, and you could sew it on to your tracksuit, dobok or gi, or frame it and hang it up in the little boy’s room.  Wear it with pride!

Options

In addition to the basics, can pick one from the following:

  • Your £10 training fees included in this pledge.  This makes a £25 pledge a really convenient way to pay your fees AND get a badge
  • If you can’t / don’t want to attend camp, you could take me up on my offer of 1.5 hours of guitar or bass tuition, suitable for beginners to intermediates.  I can do this in the Bude area, or occasionally in Eastbourne, Brighton, Cobham / Leatherhead areas as and when I visit.   Or at camp!
  • Approximately 2.5 hours of first aid training – a certified course that teaches you basic life saving techniques including recover position and CPR.  Do you ever do anything that may involve a bit of risk of injury?  Could be!  As this is a rather expensive course to provide, unfortunately, this will not include the badge offered in the basics unless you donate an additional £5.
