The Sussex RS Owners club is run voluntarily by the members, for the members. There are no mandatory fees or subs expected of members. It’s free to be part of your local group, and this is how we want to keep it.
We’re very lucky to have secured sponsorship from The Birchwood Group, who have kindly supported us with some of our biggest expenses to date. But as we’re sure you can understand, our sponsor cannot fund our every need. There are (as with every club) some occasional, and/or ongoing expenses which crop up, and for this we have to be self sufficient. To this end, we rely on the generosity of our members to support their club in whatever way they possibly can.
We would like to have a small surplus available at all times to enable us to purchase club stickers for the members, provide tea & coffee to members when attending local shows, and also some small promotional items like flyers or cards. We are also looking to save money towards a gazebo to use at shows for when we need to shelter from the rain, and as somewhere to make tea & coffee.
Members are not expected to make regular donations, but anything you can afford to give will benefit club greatly. All donations large or small will be gratefully received, and 100% of the money we receive will be put back in to the club for the benefit of its members.
A collection tin will be available at the monthly meetings. You can also make donations in the following ways.
