    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.


    Following the sudden passing of our club-mate and friend Barry Whatley, we are raising funds in his memory to support his family at this difficult time. Barry has done a great deal for youth football in our community and for the last eight years at Hawkwell Athletic FC where he has been a committee member and team manager. His wife Jo and sons, Aden and Ciaran are also actively involved in the Club and at County level and collectively the Whatley family have given so much. We therefore feel that now is the time for us to give a little something back to them, to show our appreciation for all that they do, and in honour of the kind, caring and generous man that Barry was. – Colin Stroud, Chairman Hawkwell Athletic FC, on behalf of all at the Club
