Harlequins Members raise £35,000 for the Harlequins Foundation through ticket re-sale

Saturday, 15th July 2017 @ 14:15

The Harlequins Foundation would like to say a massive thank you to those Members who re-sold their tickets last year and helped raise more than £35,000 for the Harlequins Foundation.

The money raised has ensured the Harlequins Foundation can continue to deliver programmes such as METTLE and Switch. The money donated by Members through ticket re-sale can go towards providing more than 2,000 hours of Switch coaching, providing girls with the opportunity to play rugby or provide learning materials to primary school children taking part in our eight week mental resilience programme METTLE.

Commenting on the success, Fundraising Manager Katherine Bishop said: "It is fantastic to see the Members utilising the ticket re-sale function to support the Harlequins Foundation. £35,000 is a phenomenal amount of money and will enable us to continue to deliver, plan and grow our programmes over the coming season and achieve our mission of building a brighter future for the next generation. Everyone at the Harlequins Foundation is very grateful for our Members' support and we hope they will continue to use ticket re-sale over the coming season."

We understand that it’s not always possible to make every match, but you can still ensure someone else will cheer the team on from your seat by using Ticket Forwarding or Ticket Re-sale. You can email a ticket to a friend in a few easy steps with Ticket Forwarding or just as easily put your seat up for sale to be bought by another supporter (with 50 per cent of the sale price returned to you on eCash and 50 per cent donated to the Harlequins Foundation) using Ticket Re-sale.

You can take advantage of Ticket Forwarding and Ticket Re-sale by visiting the My Stoop area of the website, where you can also find a Step by Step Guide and FAQs.
