Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help Brandon United Youth teams enter a 3 day football tournament held at Flamingo Land.
- Durham, 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.
Tom and I first got involved with Brandon United current under 8’s when our two sons joined 2 seasons ago. We attended all of the training and matches each week for about 1 year, supporting and encouraging all of the lads.
Due to the club’s success and expansion, they required more volunteer coaches. As we were already actively involved with the club, we then volunteered to fill the position, which required us to undergo the FA level 1 coaching course. This meant that we had to give up most of our spare time, to make sure we gained the necessary skills required to continue the development of the team. Since taking over as coaches, this has become a passion for ourselves, watching them develop and enjoy the beautiful game of football.
We currently play in the Russell Foster League at Durham City, we also enter them into as many tournaments as possible, due to the lad’s great enthusiasm and passion. Brando United F.C always support us in achieving our goal. As part of this we have looked at a 3-day tournament in April 2019 which is held at Flamingo Land. The hosts have a great reputation and accommodates all levels of players from around the country. The club have supported this massively by paying the entry fee for the teams.
We know that it’s a big financial commitment for the parents of the players to subsidise the remainder, so as a community club we recognise the need to start fundraising to help the club and the lads to fulfil their dream to play in this tournament.
We have a few ideas already in place for fundraising, however as the coaches of the team, we felt that a big commitment was required from ourselves. This is why on Saturday the 6th of October 2018 Tom and I are doing a 10,000ft solo skydive in order to raise funds for the Club.
We would be grateful for any kind donations to help us raise as much as we can, so then we could achieve our aim of making the weekend a success for Brandon United F.C Youth and Build towards the clubs future.
Please note that the sky dive has already been paid for and that all funds raised will go to the cause.
COME ON BRANDON
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Warren and Tom
