Weʼre raising £800 to help us pay for football equipment and jerseys
- Croydon, London, UK
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.
My name is Jahshawn and I’m 12 years old. I go to a school in South London where boys have been affected by gang crime. In my community there has been a rise in boys loosing their life and it upsets me that my peers do not feel safe.
I want to make a difference in my community by setting up a football team to give my peers a safe place to come and do constructive activities which will keep them from getting involved in gang activities. I want my football team to be more than just a football team but a family.
I am asking for some support from my community so we can get the equipment we need and the necessary insurances to be an official team in order to offer the necessary support to young people.
