Thank you Barclays Bank

Tuesday 21 May 2013

Cardiff AAC has benefited from Barclays Bank's Matchfunding Scheme to the tune of £750 and business manager Sharon Greer visited the club last night to present a cheque to club treasurer Graham Webb.

Sharon explained that the Barclays scheme is specifically designed to help voluntary groups and matches pound for pound what the group itself raises, up to a maximum of £750. She said that she was delighted to help Cardiff AAC and was very impressed with the enthusiasm of the young athletes who would benefit.

Also present was  Jeff Gorwill of LWC Drinks Limited who generously donated a hamper of drinks as a prize.

Barclays' contribution will be added to the £875 raised by the club itself at the very successful "race night" held in March and organised by club secretary Ann Cooper and her husband Tony.

Treasurer Graham Webb, accepting the Barclays cheque, explained that the funds raised from the race night would be used to help subsidise the heavy costs of team travel for the junior teams. He emphasised how important sponsors are to the club which is an entirely voluntary organisation.
