Butterfly Youth Bursary Fund

Dear Member,

It’s great to see the courts being used and so much tennis being played as the weather gets better and better. There have been some really impressive matches in the tournaments as well. Well done to everyone for getting these played (mostly) on schedule! 

A huge thank you to the 14 members that have already very kindly donated to what is a very special part of our club – the Butterfly Youth Tennis Bursary Scheme which couldn’t function without the generosity of our members. We have weekly sessions run by Arum and the coaching team and the scheme has been a fantastic success. The club runs four school sessions (two primary schools and two sessions for a secondary school) each week, as well as over 50 children entitled to Free School Meals having holiday camp and after-school tennis sessions paid for by the Bursary. We need to raise £15,000 a year to run the programme. Any donations to this fund may also be eligible for Gift Aid, if you are a UK tax payer. 

We are not able to set up a Just Giving page so any donations would need to be paid directly to the club's bank account via bank transfer. 

You will need to complete a very short form to confirm you are eligible to pay gift aid or to elect to donate without. Please click on this link: 

Wishing you a happy summer of tennis ahead! 

Best regards, 
BTC Committee
