Are you a Fundraiser?

This is a call to arms. 

If you’ve thought of an awesome way to raise money for the club now is your chance to bring it to life. Call Rhys to discuss your idea and be ready to be empowered to action it. We know that there must be plenty of fundraising and sponsorship ideas bubbling out of our awesome member base. Photos to raise money? For sure. Cake stall at Bunnings? We say yes. Golf Day tshirts? Why not.  Mick Kenny car wash in his budgies? Ok maybe not that one. But seriously, we will help you to bring your fundraising idea into reality. We have the helpers on call, the marketing and social media team ready to push the go button. We just need you and your brilliant idea to step up and drive it. 

No big idea but keen to help where you can? Join the Semaphore SLSC Volunteer Army by talking to any member who you know and asking them how they got involved or ask one of the Board of Management. 

Give Rhys a call on 0400 838 494 or email and we will help you create a plan that works in with our strategy. 

A big shout out to those people already part of the Semaphore SLSC Volunteer Army who are driving the fundraising efforts, you know who you are and we love you all:

  • Canteen crew
  • Bunnings BBQs sizzlers
  • Bunnings  Cake stall bakers

  • Sorry if I missed others

Uniform shop update

Skull caps have been selling like hotcakes and we have ordered some more and should be here in a few weeks.

We are in the process of finalising the club standard bathers (plain black with SEMAPHORE across the bottom). We should see the first order arrive early in the new year.
Bathers will be ordered in small quantities to keep costs down and stocks at a manageable level for the club.

We have limited stocks of all other apparel in the uniform shop. Again, stock will be ordered in small quantities so if there is something there you’d like, but it’s not in your size, it should be available in the next order which will now be early in the New year.

Thanks to Mardi and her small team of volunteers, you do a great job for the club.
