What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


fans of AFC Wimbledon are clubbing together to buy a gift for Wally Downes to say thank you for the Great Escape last year.

the idea is to raise a minimum Of £100 with which we will buy a plaque, engraved with

Thank you Wally

The Great Escape 2019

Always in your corner,


We will also buy a card and endeavour to carry as many messages as possible from donators.

if we raise nearer £500 we will upgrade the gift to an engraved watch.

in either case, we will be hoping to present WD with the plaque/watch at a game or farewell drinks event in Wimbledon - but this part is very much TBC.

thanks for looking and maybe even contributing.

    Hey everyone, just a reminder that you’re the best! We aimed for £100, we hit £1,600! Phenomenal but then the Great Escape was a phenomenal achievement, so it’s very fitting. The watch has been ordered and a card with all your messages is being produced as we speak. Anything left over will go towards a plaque. We are Due to present Wally with his Thank You gift at the drinks get together on Saturday - see previous post for details. And hope to see you there. Thanks again!

    So, thanks to everyone who has chipped in/shared the link (etc) for the ‘thank you’ gift for Wally. We’re up to £1,150 and counting (and anyone who wishes to can still add to it for a few days yet). We’re looking at sharing a few drinks with the man himself and presenting his gift and card to him on November 23, after the Gillingham game. If you would like to join, we will be heading to The Alex from around 6pm - the more the merrier. #WeAreWimbledon

    You guys are amazing. We hit the £100 base target within an hour and then got to £500 overnight. This means we will be able to get a watch (rather than a plaque) which is great news. We’ve made the decision to keep the page open for now to allow people to contribute and add messages should they so wish. And, of course, this will mean a better ‘thank you’ gift. So thanks to everyone who has contributed so far - please do keep spreading the word and we’ll endeavour to get a great gift befitting the Great Escape.
