Aviva Community Fund – Trentham Canoe Club

Aviva Community Fund


The annual Aviva Community Fund will finance over 500 projects in 2017 to communities throughout the UK. Last year we were so close to reaching the finals that we thought we’d give it another go!

We’re fundraising for a new Outrigger 6-person canoe which will allow us to provide group sessions for U3A, Paddle-Ability and other mixed-ability groups who are encouraged by some element of competition in their sport. If our project gets enough votes and wows the judges, it will be in with a chance of receiving these much-needed funds.

Each time you vote you’re also entered into a competition to win an Apple iPad, £250 M&S voucher, VIP rugby experiences and up to £500 for your chosen project.

It’s easy to vote for our project. Just follow the simple steps below or if you’ve registered in previous years you’ll be able to skip that section and go straight to the VOTE NOW button below.

  1. Register to vote at https://www.aviva.co.uk/good-thinking/community-fund – you will need to input your email address and choose a password. Remember you may already have an account from last year!
  2. Look out for an email from Aviva and click the ‘confirm’ link. This will take you back to the Aviva website.
  3. Enter your email address and password to vote. Obviously you’re free to vote for whoever you wish to support – but we hope you’ll give our project your ten votes!

Use every email address you have access to and consider creating some more. Last year some groups won through with as little as 1500 votes but we need far more than that to get to the judges attention. Last year we got about 6000 votes – we need to aim for double that.

Thank you!
