    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Lydiard Youth FC is a local grassroots, not for profit, youth football club providing football opportunities for children aged between 6 and 17.

    Following the postponement of all fixtures and training from 18th March until further notice, we'd like to raise monies to support and gift the frontline NHS staff at The Great Western Hospital in Swindon. There are three coronavirus wards at the hospital and hundreds of nurses, doctors, admin (of which we all know of someone working there in this community) who are working tirelessly to protect all of us.

    They are being affectionately called COVID warriors.

    Some of the staff at the hospital have asked for no one to risk bringing in gifts and parcels but we do know that they would appreciate a coffee machine or at least, coffee to be supplied to help them get through the hard days they are facing.

    With over 255 young people and players, along with their extended family networks, we'd like to support such an initiative; after all, all football clubs and players will know of teammates and opposition who have been looked after by A&E when we sadly encounter injuries, doing what we love.

    So if players, parents, any local grassroots football club, the NWYFL and the Wiltshire FA could help share this fundraising initiative or contribute a small amount, we could use the power of youth football to support those in need at our local hospital and within our community.

      We are in close conversation with Brighter Futures, GWH and Nespresso over the final arrangements of purchasing the coffee. We should be in a position to start handing over coffee pods (some 4,000) in the coming weeks. Thank you all.

      We've surpassed our initial target of £1250.00 - thank you all who have either donated or shared and supported this fundraising initiative. We have been approached by Swindon Advertiser and are hoping to increase the fund over the coming weeks. Nespresso UK are in contact and are going to support us with the coffee and machines. We'll provide a further update on that in due course. Thank you again. £1345.00 currently, that equates to potentially 3840 cups of decent coffee or a mixture of coffee and machine dispenser.
