Weʼre raising £5,000 to Help enhance the activities and services offered by AccessiBlues, Birmingham City Football Club's Disabled Supporters Association.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In 2016 we started to create a new disabled supporters group at Birmingham City Football Club.
We have been focusing on building a good relationship with BCFC over the past couple of years and our efforts have not gone unnoticed.
We were shortlisted for the #FansForDiversity award at the 2018 Football Supporters Federation awards.
Now, we want to go further and become a charity. An organisation who not only helps with advice and support at football matches, but also puts on supported free events which bring disabled people together.
Currently we have a coffee morning every Tuesday and we held a free to attend Christmas party, wholly funded by our own fundraising attempts.
Every penny we can raise will be spent on enhancing events and creating more. We are all volunteers who care about disabled people. Nobody within the group has any financial interest in AccessiBlues, we just want to help improve the social lives of people who normally won't have much opportunity to integrate with others.

About the fundraiser
I'm Steve, confounded and creater of AccessiBlues. I myself am a disabled supporter and so understand a lot of the difficulties associated with attending football matches and other social activities. Together, we can make socialising for disabled people more accessible
