Graham Taylor Supports Grassroots Cashback Initiative
Tue 10th Dec 2013 | Money & Finance
Grassroots sports clubs across the UK are in line for an early Christmas present if they shop with Club Cashback, a portal which generates a cashback reward for your club every time a purchase is made online with selected retailers.
With over 2,000 retailers to choose from, including some of the biggest high street brands, every purchase made via the new Club Cashback platform will earn clubs a cashback reward of between 1-15% of the total sales value — something former England Manager, Graham Taylor OBE, is encouraging grassroots clubs to take advantage of.
A partnership between the Football Foundation and Club Website, the not-for-profit scheme supports local clubs by helping them to raise much-needed funds, and ensure future sustainability within the grassroots game.
The process to start generating rewards is easy. Once you have signed up online, simply find your team using the 'Club Search' feature. Next, browse the Club Cashback section for the retailer, these include: Tesco; Marks & Spencer; Play.com and B&Q, and click on their website link. Finally, shop online and complete your transaction as normal, knowing that you are boosting your club's coffers in the process.
Former England Manager, Graham Taylor, said: "With Christmas fast approaching, the Football Foundation's Club Cashback is the perfect opportunity to turn some of your festive purchases into a cashback reward for your club. All you need to do is sign up and encourage your players, volunteers and their families, to shop through your Cashback portal.
"In these austere times every penny really does count, and Club Cashback gives between 1-15% of the total sales value of your purchase. So, what better way to start the New Year than with extra money to buy some new footballs or portable goals?"
"All the best initiatives are simple ones, and Club Cashback is just that - an easy-to-use scheme which helps secure the sustainability of grassroots clubs."
