    Weʼve raised £782 to help fund clubhouse repairs

    Funded on Wednesday, 30th June 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Following the recent reformation of Glapwell FC and junior football teams, we are hoping to raise over £10,000 to help restore our family clubhouse, which was last used in 2016, when the previous club folded and the ground left vacant..

    Unfortunately from this point onwards the ground fell into disrepair, with the clubhouse also suffering extensive neglect, vandalism & theft from break-ins. The majority of damage has been caused to the inside and this was not helped by the theft of the metal roof sheeting, which has caused water ingress by being exposed to the elements and subsequent damage to the internal ceilings, decoration and flooring. Vandals have damaged furnishings as well as fixtures & fittings, plumbing and electrical damage/theft.

    We intend to restore the clubhouse to its former glory, not only to benefit our adults, junior teams and their families, but to be a hub for the local community.

    The works required include: new roof, electrics, decoration & refurbishment, security alarm, new bar/serving area, furniture and equipment. We intend to use as much local labour and suppliers as possible to undertake these works.

    As a newly established club, we are very much at the heart of the local community, with facilities within the heart of Glapwell Village and providing football for the local community from ages 4-6 right through to adult teams.

    By re-establishing the clubhouse, this not only gives the teams and club a social & family area, but also we aim to make this facility available for:

    General functions

    Local groups to use for other events / meeting groups

    Adult learning & education centre

    Fitness & leisure clubs/groups

    Junior & youth holiday clubs

    Community hub for all ages

    Social & well being events for adults & children

    We feel the clubhouse, not only provides a safe and inclusive envirenment for users but also a hub that can be accessed by users 7 days a week and not just for football.

    All money raised will go straight in to the club and help rebuild the clubhouse. Any surplus funds will be put in to the junior teams section, to help establish new teams and maintain our weekly 4-6 year old kickstart football coaching programme.

    Thank you and your support is very much appreciated and welcomed.

      Hi everyone, It's been around 2 months since setting up this JustGiving page and we have been overwhelmed by the amount already raised and people willing to help out at the club. You may have noticed that our target has dropped down a little. This is due to a 50/50 football card that was ran last month. The club received £500 and the lucky winner recieving £500. The club continue to raise funds away from this page so be sure to follow the us on Facebook and Twitter to keep fully up to date. Thanks again for your support. Glapwell FC
