**OVERFUNDING** FC United are going to Moston. As our new home is being built, we are fundraising to kit out the function room.

We have reached our £26k target!

Incredible! We have managed to break our £26k target, and so can say with confidence that we will indeed Kit it Out!

When we first started the campaign we were worried that maybe 8 weeks would be too short a time frame to achieve our goal. There was always the risk of not making the target and none of the pledged funds actually going to our cause.

But as the pledges from our backers rolled in we found out that we shouldn't have been worried at all. We have reached our target in just 4 weeks and have another 4 weeks to go. It's only half time!

With that in mind, let's hope the second half is as good as the first. We will shortly be updating everyone about what additional work can be done with the extra pledges to our campaign in the next 27 days. (Our backers have rather taken us by surprise with the speed in which the target has been reached!)

Many thanks and congratulations to all our backers! This means so much to the club and to the community in which we will be part of later this year when we move into Broadhurst Park. Let's keep the momentum going!

Well done everybody! Photo credit: oakemanorevents.co.uk
