A Swansea Harriers Christmas

We would like to wish all our athletes, volunteers and everyone else associated with the club a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Both the indoor and outdoor tracks close after training on Thursday 21st December 2023 and will reopen on the morning of Tuesday 2nd January 2024. With the exception of Saturday 30th December 2023 9am to 1pm where both indoor and outdoor tracks will be available, open only to those who have pre booked and paid online here.

Christmas Kit:

We have plenty of club kit (rain jackets, hoody’s, crop tops, vests, t-shirts and beanies) available to purchase as Christmas presents, incognito every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in the club cafe from 5pm to 7pm, up to and including Thursday 21st December 2023, exactly what every Swansea Harrier wishes for as their main Christmas present!

Christmas Thank You List:

The club has kept running for another whole year and this has been down to the hard work of all of our volunteers:

Thanks to all the coaches for making themselves available as much as possible in all weather conditions.

Thanks to the treasurer and the cafe team of mums, dads and grandparents who cover eight shifts a week between them, two a day Monday to Thursday to collect training fees, membership fees and kit sales on our new contactless cashless system and religiously turning up even if their own kids weren’t training.

Thanks to all our officials for supporting all our home and away fixtures, and also to all our team managers on and off track for getting squads out for on and off track league matches

Thanks to all of the club trustees/committee for all of their very important hard work in finance, governance and more, that goes on unseen in the background.

Thanks to the University Track Staff too supporting us year round in competition & training.

Online Christmas Shopping & Fundraise for Swansea Harriers in the Process:

Swansea Harriers depends entirely on the fundraising efforts of our members to exist. We rely on a steady stream of smaller donations primarily via our membership fees and club cafe sales. These donations alone give us the assured income to help meet our operational costs. Additionally to keep participation costs to our members as affordable as possible, from all groups of the community, from grassroots introductory level through to international level, Swansea Harriers are registered online with the Easy Fundraising initiative below, that we hope you will consider utilising to help raise further much needed income for the club. These funds can help ensure the club continues to grow its income to enable the sport on the ground to thrive and survive.

At no extra cost to you a percentage of your item will go to the club and there are thousands of retailers to choose from, 100% of the income raised goes back into the club.
