About the project

FC Kolektivo Victoria is a community football club based in Victoria Park, Leicester. We aim to provide a space in the city for all people, irrespective of age, class, culture, disability, gender, race, religion, or sexuality, to take part in football as an important social activity. There are many who, due to their status as refugees and asylum seekers or due to financial hardship, struggle to afford the resources required for playing football. FCKV already provides access to the physical space and to tournaments for free, but footwear, shin pads, socks, t-shirts and socks can be expensive. We believe that being unable to afford these should not exclude anyone from taking part. That's why were asking for donations to help us buy the kit required to allow all those who want to to take part in this social activity.£250 would be enough for us to buy 8 full kits (astro boots, shin pads, socks, t-shirts and shorts) in a range of sizes that would be made available to those unable to afford their own.This small amount would make a big difference in allowing refugees, asylum seekers and those suffering financial hardship to take part in a simple social activity that can be at the heart of building a community of support in Leicester.
