Weʼre raising £1,000 to support TFC Netball Club's senior team compete in England Netball's Mizuno Premier League.
- Leicester, 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.
TFC is a Leicestershire-based netball team, competing in England Netball’s Mizuno Premier League Division 3. This is the highest level of competition for amateur netballers putting us in the top 30 teams nationally.
TFC is a small club, run by a core group of athletes and volunteers who all share the same love, dedication and commitment to our club.
Participating in the national league means that we will literally be taking ourselves off to the far corners of the country and beyond... From spending weekends in Brighton, Norfolk and Manchester to taking our annual trip to play against Jersey. Yes! Jersey in the Channel Islands, to play the game we love - and all of this will be self-funded.
The reason we are making a crowdfunding page is to ask our family and friends to support us financially this season in our quest for success and promotion.
TFC's national Premier League team has no sponsorship and does not receive any grant funding (other than a small contribution from the county which goes towards entry into the league). Funding of court hire, coaching, officials, transport (including flights), accommodation, kit and refreshments, totalling over £4000 this year, falls entirely to the players. Many of the team are students with limited means who often aren’t able to commit to away fixtures due to the expense involved.
Your financial donations will directly support our elite athletes by subsidising their travel, providing better quality training venues and much-needed equipment and kit. Perhaps most importantly, the money raised will ease some pressure and allow these talented players to reach their full potential and take TFC to promotion to Division 2. Any donation, no matter the amount, will be gratefully received.
We also invite you to join the TFC family by following us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TFCnetballclub/ where you will see the latest club news, how we are spending donations and details of our fixtures and results. You could even come and support! We guarantee you entertainment and the odd nail-biting finish.
Thank you for your support, we really appreciate it.
