Chester-le-Street ASC is a non profit making swimming club, providing the opportunity for local children to participate in swimming as a competitive sport. The club does not receive any external financial support or income to assist with pool hire apart from its membership fees.
In order for the club to maintain its high standards at local, regional, national and international level it relies on support from its members, parents and local businesses to help maintain these standards. We are constantly striving to raise our profile and generate funding for our swimmers to have the opportunity to excel in their chosen sport.
Please find detailed below information regarding fundraising opportunities for the club, along with previous fundraisers. As always we appreciate your support.
Help the club
easyfundraising.org.uk helps charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups, and other good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online. So far they’ve raised over £4 million for causes throughout the UK.
It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for your cause instead. It’s as simple as that!
You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 1.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!

A big thank you to all who helped support Friday night’s “Easter Sweet Treat Fundraiser”. It was a huge success and needless to say we had some rather “eggcited” children!
