Thank you for visiting our page.
We are crowdfunding to try to raise money so that Kirkie can go for goals! We want to create an all inclusive project where everyone can be a part of Kirknewton Football. Let us tell you a bit more.
Who are Kirknewton Community Development Trust?
We are a community trust set up in the village an our main aim is to try to improve the lives of everyone who lives and works in Kirknewton.
What do we do?
We love our community. Kirknewton Community Development have a great team. We work really closely with all the groups in Kirknewton. to ensure that this is a great village to live in. We have this year set up a new pensioners' group getting our older residents out and about including going out for afternoon tea and a day trip to Pitlochry. It has been hugely successful and it has been great getting to know them all.
We also run a youth club for our P7's and up which is very popular but there are limited things that the kids can do in the village. Running these two groups gave us the idea to bring these fabulous people together in something fun. The building of the new football pavilion was the sign we needed to decide on football! Nothing brings people together like football does.
What is our vision?
We have a big football pitch and goals but no nets and the pitch is too big for the smaller kids. The kids end up playing in the streets in different small areas. We would like everyone to be able to use the park to play football.
Our aim is to bring everyone with a love of football together to play scheduled games and the football pavilion open for changing and toilet breaks. This includes boys, girls. mums. dads. grannies and grandads. We would like to get everyone playing no exclusions. No one is not good enough.
Where would your money go?
Any money raised would buy new nets and smaller goals, footballs and if we get enough we would train some local volunteers from the local community, through the SFA scheme , to be able to coach the kids . Our absolute long -term aim would be to have our own football teams.
We would get the project up and running as soon as we had the money.
We would love it if you could help us achieve this goal (no pun intended!) We would have a fitter, healthier and happier Kirknewton.
