Weʼre raising £1,958 to help fund 23 bricks at Bishop Auckland FC new memorial wall, in memory of the 23 who tragically lost their lives in Munich 1958

Bishop Auckland, UK

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 charity.

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


Supporters of Manchester United Football Club asked us, the supporters of Bishop Auckland Football Club to help donate money for bricks in Bishop Auckland Football Club new commemorative wall, further cementing our indelible link between the two clubs. The bricks will commemorate all 23 people who lost their lives, after a plane crash in Munich on 6th February 1958.

Following the accident Bishop Auckland FC were asked if they could send players to help Manchester United field a team, which they duly obliged by sending 3 of their best players, Derek Lewin, Bobby Hardisty and Warren Bradley.

Any money raised over and above the target will be shared equally with a worthy cause nominated by Manchester United Football Club and Bishop Auckland FC Supporters Club of which the proceeds will be used to support youth development with in the first team squad.

    Just a quick update on the brick wall and we are now in possession of the bricks and we are in the process of getting them installed. We also have a chosen charity for the surplus monies to be equally shared with youth development within Bishop Auckland FC first team squad and with Association of Former Manchester United Players. The Association of Former Manchester United Players is a very worthy cause which helps players who might not have had anywhere near the financial benefits of recent times but gave so much pleasure to so many people.
