From time to time Taurus Boat Club donates funds to Oxford Brookes Boat Club to help the current students achieve their goals (see the successful Temple 8+ appeal for an example).
If you wish to support the club in this way then please consider setting up a standing order directly to our dedicated fundraising account - the Sponsorship Account for future Brookes donations. This is an account we use specifically for fundraising - all funds are ring-fenced and kept separate from general club funds. 100% of donations go to support Brookes. We have never publicised or promoted this account but even with a handful of subscribers making modest donations of £20 - £50 annually we have made several donations over the years.
Any level of donation is welcome - but we would suggest an annual donation of between £20 - £50 to keep it affordable.
On behalf of the Taurus committee, thank you to all those that have donated either through membership subscriptions, sponsorship account donations, individual donations or all three. We don't ask for your money lightly and will always ensure that it is properly looked after and used for the best results from Brookes rowing.
To set up a standing order please either:
1 - By post using attached form.
Download the combined fundraising form/standing order form (download here). This must then be printed out, completed, signed by hand and posted to the Treasurer, Simon Speirs (address on the form).
2 - Set up standing order via online banking
Using your own online banking service it is normally very easy to set up a new standing order, using the following account information.

Reference - Your name
Once you have set up the payment please email us at email@example.com so we can let you know how your kind donation has been used.
