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.

True legends should be recognised, at Sunderland AFC we have our fair share of legends.
However we have 3 players who have pulled on the colours over 1400 times between them.
Jimmy Montgomery 627 appearances, Len Ashurst with 458 & Charlie Hurley with 402.
I think it is fitting that these club legends are honoured with their own statues to be placed around the Stadium of Light and to give Bobby Stokoe a little company.
The estimated cost for each statue is £40,000 totalling £120,000. Anything raised over this will be split evenly between the Foundation Of Light and the Beacon Of Light.
*The club are yet to give their approval on the statues being placed around the stadium.
