£300raised of £175,000 target by 9 supporters

    Weʼve raised £300 to Help build our new changing rooms and develop the site at East Bierley Playing Fields.

    East Bierley, West Yorkshire
    Funded on Saturday, 11th March 2017

    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.



    This is happening as there is a newly formed association called "East Bierley Community Sports Association" which have taken over the running of the site from the Council. EBCSA is run by local volunteers from Birkenshaw Rugby, Hunsworth FC, East Bierley FC and the local community who have managed to secure funds to develop the site. The funds raised to date cover about 50% of the cost of the full works so the remaining money has been covered by way of a long term loan from Kirkless Council.

    The loan is for £175,000.00 so we are desperate to raise funds to pay this back so that we can concentrate our efforts and get back to our main goal which is to provide a fantastic sporting venue for all who want to use it.

    Your donation toward reducing this loan, no matter how big or small, is hugely appreciated.

    So from everyone at EBCSA.......... and all of the kids who play there:
