Even though the World has slowed to the pace of an under 7's goal keeper coming off their line matched with the feeling of despair only normally experienced in a 10 - nil drubbing, things are now finally starting to look up and your local Club needs your help.
Whilst game play has been at a minimum over the last 12 months some Club costs have still had to be met, the grass pitches have continued to grow as have most of the players meaning grounds maintenance costs and new kit costs have been forthcoming.
Bawtry JFC was formed in 2007 with the aim of providing football coaching to boys and girls in a safe and supportive environment. All our coaches and volunteers are DBS checked and each age group is led by an FA qualified coach.
Unfortunately due to the effects the Covid lockdown has had on our normal Club fundraising we find ourselves in need of financial support, this Crowdfunding site has been set up to allow you our loyal fans and the wider Community to donate directly to your local Club.
The impact of Covid-19 and the 'new normal' mean that we are having to cover previously unimaged costs, such as additional training venues to ensure all the teams are able to train in a socially distanced environment, additional equipment to ensure minimal sharing, all the additional cleaning and sanitizing materials we need to keep the players, parents and staff safe, plus in the past we would hold raffles to fund our matchday league referees, unfortunately that is just not possible at the moment so the Club has been funding these directly. All the funds raised by you will go towards these important items and keep the Club going during these difficult times.
We are asking everyone and anyone to support our local Club by donating as much as they can to this Crowdfunding initiative, as an added incentive we have Rewards available donated from the Club and the surrounding Community.
Plus there is also a window of opportunity at the moment where Sport England, under their ‘Active Together’ Crowdfunding initiative, will consider matching up to 50% of our initial target. We are currently applying for it and want to try and take advantage of the potential match funding from Sport England but can only do it with your support.
To thank you for your donation to the club we have a range of Rewards you can select within the Reward section of this page. Ideal for that special someone or just to keep your ears warm!
We have a range of Rewards available branded with the Club logo so you can show your support every match day!
As your local Club we couldn't survive without the generosity of the local Businesses within our Community and for this important cause they have excelled themselves and we are so grateful for their kindness, you can view details of their individual Rewards within the Rewards section of this page and the Club would like to extend their thanks to the following Businesses:
