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.


Bearsted Football Club needs your help.

Our club celebrates our 125th Anniversary this year. We have been a significant part of community sport in Bearsted and the surrounding area since 1895. From our development squad of 4-6 years olds, through to the vets, not forgetting our hugely successful first team, our club supports over 500 boys and girls to play football.

Our club costs over £125,000 a year to run, from team entry fees, training, coaching courses and maintaining our ground at Honey Lane Otham. 25% of the income required to meet those costs come from our fundraising events. These include our annual tournament, summer ball and quiz nights. As we all socially isolate it is not possible for us to hold these events and so we have a dent in our finances.

Our teams are all playing virtual football and keeping up the community spirit. You can see all the teams videos on our Facebook Page.

The U10s video has been watched 15,000 times at the time of writing.

We need your help to keep us going so we can come back ready to go when we can resume our beloved football again.

Thank you on behalf of everyone involved in our club.

Clare Maynard - Treasurer Bearsted FC.

    Morning and another huge thank you for supporting us with our fundraising efforts this season. This weekend has seen many friendlies taking place at our ground and it was so lovely to see how happy the boys and girls were to play and be part of the team. This is in part thanks to your donations. I must thank some who have given to us directly, so that their contributions are not missed. This includes Dave and Christine Cowan £100, Sara and Steve Bailey £100, Gary Page £20 and Alan Swift £20 Thank you for helping us through the season
