As a team we’ve had two birthdays together. As individual members we have over 70 separate birthday dates (with the odd doubler here and there). Throw in Christmas (we’re approaching our third as a team) and suddenly the whole present-buying shenanigan becomes real expensive, right?
Well we have a solution which means you can give to ALL of us with a little click of a button and for as much or as little as you choose.
Introducing the Tiger Bay Brawlers Amazon wishlist
But seriously, like most/almost all derby leagues we primarily operate on the funds we put in ourselves via monthly subs. This money goes towards essential things like hall hire, insurance, track equipment, first aid supplies, bout day essentials.. you get the picture. We don’t make profit off our events either – all the money we make (if we make any) is surplus and gets reinvested into the team; be that juniors, rec league, fresh meat or the vet skaters – we all benefit from one pot. Needless to say, much of this equipment works out fairly expensive, but we can’t do without it.
We’ve had a lot of messages from people recently who have been unable to attend our events asking how they can support the league without being present. We know not everyone can make our bouts or fundraisers and that’s fine and completely justified, but we thought this wishlist was the perfect solution to that, and hope you agree.
We’ve kept it to the essentials so you can see what we spend our money on, and have also tried to explain why we need each item.
Whether this is something you choose to do or not we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of you, our Brawler fans. You’re always hugely supportive and make everything we do an absolute pleasure. We really do appreciate it.
