Help us reach £25,000 this year

The costs associated with putting on the UK’s biggest roller derby tournament are increasing year-on-year.

With your help, we can continue to support the fantastic work of our nominated charity, while at the same time making the awesome sport of roller derby accessible to more people. All profits from the event are donated to the road safety charity Brake and so far we've managed to raise over £20,000. 

Brake carry out valuable work raising awareness around road safety. They also support victims and their families making them an aptly deserving partner for the Louisey Rider Cup. Read on to discover the ways in which you can support this year's roller derby tournament and help us reach £25,000 or get in touch below.

Could you help us cover our costs?

The inaugural Lousiey Rider Cup, which donates all profits to Brake, was funded by Louise's Legacy Fund. The fund itself comprised of generous donations made at Louise's funeral. Her loved ones, along with her employer Paul Smith, wished to make a contribution to the sport that played such a significant part in her life. These donations helped build a solid foundation and as a result, some clear goals were established for Louisey Rider's Legacy. 

It would strive to: 

1 Make roller derby accessible to all with affordable spectator tickets and skater tickets open to all abilities every year.
2 Host the biggest roller derby event in Europe while still keeping things sparkly and fun - it's something Louise always wanted.
3 Raise as much money as possible for road safety charity Brake. With your support we can reach our goal!

Any amount will help us to put on a brilliant event and get us so much closer to our target, but your contribution might look like:

£20 To help towards digital advertising, reaching a wider audience and increasing ticket sales.
£50 To pay for our game day programme, an annual keepsake.
£100 For one hour hall hire. This is by far one of the biggest costs we incur on the day.
£350 To cover our amazing on site medics, without whom we wouldn't be able to host.

No Louisey Rider Cup is complete without a bonkers fundraising challenge. We've shaved people, waxed them, made them complete an obstacle course, walk over lego and eat super hot wings. Well, we say people, but mostly we make our mate Roller Polar Bear go through these gruelling challenges. And we're pleased to announce this year will be no different. Keep an eye on LRC socials for an imminent announcement. Can't make it this year and want to help us reach our goal? Follow the link below.
