    Story

    I'm raising funds for the Great Britain Junior Amputee Football Association in order to enable them to provide a football training weekend camp for the junior amputees aged between 7 & 16 years. The camp will see over 20 children take part in amputee football sessions over two days based at Reaseheath College in Crewe. Each group will be coached by experienced and qualified staff who make the weekend inclusive and enjoyable for each child. I recently attended a weekend camp with my 14 year old son Harvey-James who has suffered amputations from contracting Meningitis as young child. I was shocked to hear that the Charity supporting the camp EAFA - England Amputee Football Association: 328551 are completely self funded and given no support from the FA. I was truly humbled, overwhelmed and privileged to be a part of, watch close up The Great Britain Junior Amputee squad. The spirt and courage these young people show in their desire to play football is simply humbling and overwhelming at the same time. Children who have suffered such heart breaking adversary at such a young age showing such unbelievable strength in every aspect, I never saw one child complain, moan or show any self pity the whole weekend but simply pick themselves up, brush themselves down and carry on forward.

    They a have course provisional booked for August depending on funding the event.

    I left the weekend saying to myself I have to help provide funds to put another camp in place so will again be calling on the kindness of the football community, family and friends to help give these inspirational children another chance to enjoy a weekend of football and gain some the best coaching available to them.

    If you can spare a small donation no matter the size it will help achieve our 'GOAL'.
