Weʼre raising £5,000 to Help Blackpool BMX Club a local club run by volunteers who was broken into and £5000 of equipment stolen. This is to try and help replace it
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.
I am the secretary and coach at our local BMX race club , Blackpool BMX Club. We are totally reliant on volunteers and provide coaching and run races for the local kids.
We recently suffered a break in at our container and we have had numerous items stolen. Most of our clubs bikes were taken that we hire out to get kids started and also lots of items of equipment that we use for the upkeep of the track.
We receive no financial help from anyone and we are also required to look after the BMX track , even down to cutting the grass as the council do not help with that , this can be a back breaking task even with the equipment that we have had stolen.
As a small club we cannot really afford to lose this amount of equipment and it has devastated us.
It has been suggested that we setup a justgiving page by people who would like to donate and get us back on our feet , so here it is.
Any donation big or small would be gratefully received.
