Support Our Fundraising
Fundraising events are an important contributor to the progress and development of the Newtown City Hockey Club. The Club strives to provide an enjoyable and supportive environment for all members. Improving playing and social facilities and player development plays a key part in this.
Newtown City Hockey Club is administered by volunteers, without any paid employees. The Club’s income is derived from fees paid by members, as well as special fundraising ventures.
Members’ fees cover about 75% of the expenditure which the Club incurs each year. Members’ fees cover the costs of participating in a team – ground hire for matches and training, team entry fees, umpire payments, equipment, games badges, trophies and team photos. The Club Committee aims to keep members’ fees at reasonable levels, with the aim of encouraging more people to participate.
Fundraising ventures assist in training and developing umpires and coaches, developing new programs and recruiting new members. These efforts also support the maintenance and development of playing facilities and buildings at Lloyd Reserve. Fundraising ventures are a vital contributor to Newtown Hockey Club’s ability to provide an affordable and enjoyable experience for members.
The 2018 target for special fundraising ventures and income not derived from membership fees is $10,000.

Denis Walter Carols by the Bay
The Denis Walter Carols by the Bay are usually held in early December. This gives us an opportunity to help the community and to raise funds for the Club, by cleaning up the area and picking up any rubbish on the morning after the concert. One hour each for 8 volunteers will get the job done.
Festival of Sails – Royal Geelong Yacht Club
The Festival of Sails is held each year during the Australia Day period in January. We have assisted in this venture for nearly 20 years by providing volunteers to keep the area clean and manage the disposal of rubbish. In return, we receive a payment from the Yacht Club. The venture usually involves about 80 volunteer shifts of 3 hours each. This is the major fundraising event for the Club for the year.
