Get Involved. Change Lives

The most valuable gift you can give is your time. Join our amazing community of volunteers and supporters, who individually, and as a team, help Fylde Sharks to improve the lives of children with disabilities on the Fylde Coast.

The administration, marketing and running of the club and all fundraising activity is all carried out voluntarily by our amazing committee members and volunteers. Each person's contribution is invaluabe.

Fylde Sharks needs around £14,000 each year in order to continue to provide much needed swimming lessons to children with a whole range of disabilities. The money covers the ongoing costs of providing qualified swimming teachers, pool hire, life guards, equipment, insurance and CRB checks. These are all vital to ensure that Fylde Sharks operates effectively and continues to provide invaluable one to one swimming lessons for children with disabilities across the Fylde Coast.

If you'd like to get involved, please contact us. Together we can make a difference!

There are many ways to get involved including fundraising, supporting us at events and volunteering. Get invloved, and help us to change children's lives.

Support Fylde Sharks. Volunteer, Fundraise, Take Part

Donate

Every donation we receive, no matter how small, is gratefully received and very much appreciated by all at Fylde Sharks. If you have any doubts about how much your donation matters, please read the testimonials throughout our website and the comments by parents on our Supporters page. Your donation could be a one off, monthly or annual financial donation, or donations of equipment, your time or raffle prizes. For ways to donate, please visit our Donate page.

Fundraise for us

Some people do some extraordinary things to fundraise, but really anything goes. Hosting your own event is a great (and fun!) way to raise money for Fylde Sharks, or why not try challenge events, prize draws, collection boxes, sponsored events, coffee mornings, race nights or a corporate fundraising event?

Become a volunteer

You could donate your time and skills and become a volunteer with Fylde Sharks, whether that be a volunteer to help at the pool with the swimming sessions, helping behind the scenes with administration, or helping with fundraising.

Without our amazing volunteers, we simply could not continue and we are always on the look-out for new volunteers to join our friendly team. Thanks to the grant from Sported, we have the funds to train volunteers to become qualified Level 1 swimming teachers in return for a 12 month commitment as a swimming volunteer, so you could receive a qualification while helping us.

Join our Committee

Become a committee member and help shape the future of Fylde Sharks and make a real difference to the lives of Fylde disabled children and their families.

Do you have any skills or experience of sitting on a committee, designing and producing promotional literature, marketing, accounts, fundraising, working with children, or do you just have the willingness to give your time and learn on the job as most of the existing committee have done? If you are interested in finding out more, we would love to hear from you, please contact us.

Support our Events

Simply keep your eye on our website for upcoming events and pop along to join us at fundraising events to enjoy a social activity with your family and friends.

However you decide to get involved and support us, we are sure you will find it a very worthy experience.

Our volunteers and supporters are priceless, we couldn't do it without you - thank you!
