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.
Ever since I can remember I have loved and played football. Around 2014 I helped out my friend who was coaching our local teams under 8's and then into under 9's Assisting with coaching and game days as well as all the other bits and bobs associated with grassroots football. With a day job that had very heavy hours this became increasingly hard to carry on with and unfortunately I had to stop. Recently and with a new part time job in hand I have had plenty more time to focus back on the coaching I love. I recently took my FA level 1 in coaching which I enjoyed very much and gave me a real desire to progress my learning.
I have gone back to the local team now to help a friend with the under 6's. The pleasure it gives me to bring the game I have always loved to these kids that are every bit as passionate as I was is hard to put into words, win lose or draw to see them listening and learning and playing with such joy is the best feeling in the world. This brings me on to why am I asking for your donation?
I would really like to take my FA level 2 badge . The level 2 progresses you as a coach to make sure you are doing all you can and teaches you how to develop a player. Despite all my football experience I learnt so much on my level 1 and you realise coaching is so different to playing, you are never going to be in a position where you know everything, even as a coach you are constantly learning, but I want to be the best I can be. Once qualified I would love to take this out to the schools and after school clubs and bring the game to kids who might not have clubs, there could be some real unknown talent lurking around the corner.
This is a big chunk of money for a grassroots team to put forward for me and I am so so passionate about what I do, anything you can give will be such a big help.
Any extra funds raised to the amount stated will be put into new equipment.
Thank you x
