Story

Bellfield Royals (2006) are a youth football club based in Kilmarnock, Scotland. The age group was formed in 2012 and many of the current playing squad and coaches have been part of the team since its formation. The club relies heavily on donations and support of families, friends and local businesses in order to provide the team with equipment and experiences to live long in their memories.

We are looking to buy new Home playing strips for the entire squad together with kit bags to replace the current kit, which for many is now too small. We are looking to raise £400 for the strips and £200 to cover the kit bags.

We have 20 in the squad, the strips cost £20 each and the kit bags are £10.

We have decided to do things differently this time and attempt to raise the funds involved via crowdfunding which will then enable us to use the shirt sponsor section to support the Myeloma UK charity.

Myeloma is a form of bone cancer which affects thousands of people in the UK with more than 5,000 cases being diagnosed each year. There is currently no cure for the disease however continual research developments mean that different drugs are regularly becoming available and with that more and more people are able to live with the disease and lead a more normal life.

A director from one of our past sponsors Humphrey Robertson has been living with the disease for over 9 years. Humphrey is the grandfather of one of our players Jack and the father of Craig, a coach. We would like to show our support for Humphrey by helping to raise awareness of the disease by using Myeloma UK as our shirt sponsor on the new strips for the coming season. The tax raised from donations will also be donated to the charity.

On behalf of the entire playing squad, coaches, families and friends we would like to thank you for supporting our cause.
