To raise much needed funds to help support grass root football at Farnham United FC

by Nicola Budd in Farnham, Surrey, England

Farnham United FC has provided grass-root fototball in the local community for over 40 years.  Over this period we have managed girl teams, disability teams, min-soccer for 4-7 year olds and football teams from U7s to U17s.  We have worked with the Police Youth Offending Unit to help local children overcome adversity through football and continue to support children in our community from less fortune backgrounds by funding membership fees to ensure they too have the opportunity to play, be part of a team and thrive in sport.  

Last season the grounds were broken into causing significant damage to our pitches, our entrance and equipment.  We have begun to address the damage by reseeding our pitches for this season but we still need to secure our grounds to ensure this does not occur again and more widely improve our facilities to give the boys a sense of pride in their home ground.  

In an attempt to raise much needed funds Ben Roseveare - Chairman and Tom O'Connor - Treasurer of Farnham United are going to abseil 300 ft down the Spinnaker Tower which whilst thrilling to some is terrifying for both Ben and Tom!
