Support Pinewood

 Friends of Pinewood


Friends of Pinewood is a friends group, created to support Pinewood Judo Club and in doing so, will subsequently unite those that have coached, trained or simply supported the club over the many years of it’s running.

Pinewood Judo Club has created a legacy of supporting and developing people of all ages, by attentively and impartially developing them as judo players, regardless of their individual aims in judo. The support gained through this initiative will aid the club in continuing their incredible legacy.

Don Werner created a remarkable judo club and was exceptionally dedicated to maintaining it, with absolute passion and effort. With Don’s recent passing, this legacy need not discontinue and the Friends of Pinewood group will directly support the club with all its’ endeavours in maintaining Don’s legacy.

Why Join?

Event Funding

Pinewood Judo Club is reputable for its attitude towards competition and event attendance. The club was well known for attending competitions both domestically and abroad very frequently, if not on a weekly basis. Developing competitive experience by frequently and continually attending events is part of the clubs credo. So much so, that Don developed a policy where by the club would pay for the cost of events, for those in the Advanced Class. Unfortunately, the club has been unable to continue this policy for financial reasons. Proceeds from the Friends of Pinewood group will contribute directly to the Werner Scholarships; a  new concept established in Don’s memory, that will enable the club to follow on from the previous policy of funding the cost of events for members of the Advanced Class.

How will the Friends of Pinewood group support Pinewood Judo Club?

Proceeds from Friends of Pinewood membership fees, donations, gift aid and fundraising events, will go directly to Pinewood Judo Club with the primary focus of reinstating the Advanced Class events funding policy, thus introducing the Werner Scholarships. Pinewood Judo Club has earned a loyal and caring fan base, consisting of past and present members. It is the hope that by banding together as one support group, we can support the club directly in a meaningful and practical way.
