Perranporth SLSC is one of the oldest Surf Life Saving Clubs in Great Britain, has over 300 members, is rooted in the local community and provides first class lifesaving training for volunteers - many of whom have been responsible for saving lives on beaches around the world.
With a diverse range of activities focused on surf livesaving and related sports, a need to keep their members up to date with a busy calendar and the need to attract sponsors they needed a site that would do all of these things and more besides.
Integrating e-newsletters, developing their social media sites and running their internal mail system is just part of the package – and membership enquiries have reached the point where there’s a waiting list for some sections of the club.
As a registered charity, the club relies on organising fundraising events – none bigger or more important than the annual Perranporth Extreme Surf Triathlon that attracts competitors from all over the UK and abroad.
By building in an online entry system and hooking it up a payment gateway we were able to help the club administer this event more effectively, encourage sign up and boost profits to help running costs and support purchases of lifesaving & rescue equipment.
Our website is absolutely critical to keeping our members, supporters and sponsors up to date with what we're up to. Entries to our annual triathlon - the biggest event - and fundraiser of the year is managed through the site with SeaDog's support.
