Football Foundation Funding Confirmed
The start of the the 2013/14 season brings with it HUGE NEWS, probably the biggest since the club was founded 110 years ago in 1903.
Today we receieved written confirmation from the Football Foundation that we have been granted funding for the building of our 3G all weather pitch. This is the culmination of over a years work by the clubs committee and in particular Nik Hart in securing the funds necessary for the club to complete this project. The Football Foundation themselves and Sport England together with and a variety of smaller grants covers over half the total estimate of £370,000!
Whilst the grants are a significant amount of money the club has committed to raising the balance of the cost of the project. We have already secured some of this through club reserves built up over the last couple of seasons and a number of large donations made by several incredibly generous individuals at the club.
BUT WE STILL NEED MORE!! The voluntary donations made during the subscription period for this season have not been as successful as we expect or hoped. So we have to ask for you to dig deep - If you've already donated thank you very much but if you can spare more please do so. If you haven't donated, this is YOUR club and no amount is too small.
To donate or increase the amount you have already given please contact Nik Hart: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07718 539920 as soon as possible.
SOME SIMPLE MATHS FOR YOU...WE HAVE NEARLY 500 PLAYERS - THATS A LOT OF PARENTS - WE KNOW TIMES ARE TOUGH BUT...
If just 100 people donated £50 that's £5,000 or better still if 200 people donated £100 that's £20,000 and so on... we're so close, we hope you can help!
