Redcar Athletic Football Club is a Community Grassroots Football Club that provides facilities for the community of Redcar to engage in football activities & healthy activities, we also run several community initiatives aiming to have a positive impact on health & social inclusion in our local community. We have over 260 young members aged from 3 years old . The Club is ran by a team of volunteers and we rely on the membership fees from the members to manage the day to day running of the club.
Recently , and for the 2nd time in a year, our facility was vandalised through the evening, a window on a turnstile building was smashed up and substantial damage caused to the building, a storage portacabin had the window removed and the cabin trashed in addition and much more worrying our floodlight control boxes were broken into risking serious injury through electrocution.
The damage now has to be replaced/repaired and we simply cannot afford the work at this moment the best that we can do is make temporary repairs by boarding up the damage until we can afford to complete the work. We are hoping that by raising funds we can replace the broken windows & window frames, repair the damaged portacabin but more importantly purchase a comprehensive CCTV system which may deter further events of this nature
