Funding

British Fencing will cover the costs of the Chef de Mission.

In addition the following monies have been pledged so far:

  • Foil – MF team entry fee (BF Charity). Up to £500 to cover the cost of 1 foil coach (BF Charity)
  • Sabre – MS team entry fee (Patron).  Up to £1000 to cover the cost of 1 sabre coach (£500 BF Charity, £500 Sabre Fund)
  • Epee – WE & ME team entry fees (Epee Club).  Up to £1000 to cover the cost of 1 epee coach (Epee Club)

BF will be trying to raise additional money to cover all the team entry fees and send a coach in each of the three weapons. Over and above that all monies raised will be split between the athletes competing.

We have set up a page to collect donations for the event on the BF Charity website here:

http://mydonate.bt.com/events/2018gbsenioreurosfencing

You can either choose to share that page or set up your own fundraising pages which links to that page. You may be able to use your fundraising pages to target donations to particular weapons if you like. The advantage of collecting donations through the BF Charity is that they will be eligible for gift aid.
