Weʼre raising £10,000 to Support Weston-super-Mare Association Football Club with Stadium Maintenance Costs
- The Optima Stadium, Weston-super-Mare.
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.
Weston-super-Mare Association Football Club are a proud, family run club, who play an important role within the local community and beyond.
Reformed in 1948, the club has been on an incredible journey, playing through the football pyramid, where we find ourselves today in the Southern Premier League South.
As we all adjust to a new way of life, we have a huge challenge ahead, to make sure that this long standing football club, can open its gates once again and offer football that we all love and admire.
As with all well run football clubs, we are always planning ahead, the close season is a time where we look to improve things, not just on the playing front, but to improve and maintain the facility and stadium, this is where we are asking you, our loyal supporters for help.
With the season finishing early, missed income from our remaining home games, a calendar of functions that have been cancelled, the following work and improvements cannot commence:
Main Pitch works has started, but only because our contractor has given us grace on payment, the sound system is in need of a full upgrade, toilets within the bar and function suite are in a very bad state and need a desperate upgrade, we want to improve the match day kitchen facility and the list goes on and on...
We appreciate times are hard and other things are taking priority, but if you feel you can help in anyway, then please be rest assured, your donation is greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.
For a minimum of £5 donated, we will offer free entry to one of our local pre season friendlies and if we can meet our £10K target or even exceed this, we will donate 10% of this to NHS Charities.
More details about which preseason game will be released in due course.
We understand this is a big, big ask, but we are hopeful that we can all come together and achieve our goal...
Thank you for your time and understanding, please stay safe and we hope to see you all very soon.
Weston-super-Mare AFC Board
If you donate over £5, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with proof of your donation, where you will be contacted in due course with information about your free preseason game.
