Weʼve raised £2,350 to put towards the cost of replacing our historic 'Shed End' stand at Shawbridge after it was sadly destroyed in storms.
- Clitheroe, UK
- Funded on Thursday, 31st May 2018
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.
Unfortunately our oldest stand was destroyed by Storm Emma at the beginning of March, and due to safety reasons it had to be completely torn down.
The stand is the oldest in the ground installed over 45 years ago, and throughout that time continued to be an integral part of Shawbridge, sheltering our home regulars and away fan groups alike.
Had a cracking Boxing Day a few years back under this stand watching Clitheroe v Ramsbottom with family and friends... - Dom Burke
RIP the Shed End. So many memories made watching games under there since a kid. Started going in the 70s when there was only the Shed End and a wooden seated stand on the halfway line for cover. Great times - Richard Hardcastle
We are trying to raise funds to go towards the cost of replacing the stand with another that the club, fans, and the town's community can be proud of.
The initial £5000 will be used for the preliminary work and preparations of installing a new stand, but we are all too aware that in 2018 a new stand will cost considerably more. Our initial target is to have a new stand in place for the beginning of the 2018/19 season.
100% of donations will go directly towards the construction of the new stand and anything that you can donate will be greatly appreciated by the club and it's volunteers.
We'll also hopefully be organising some exciting fundraising events in the near future to help us along the way, so keep your eyes peeled.
