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

We are overfunding - Here are some tasty new rewards!

What a great position to be in. The success of the campaign so far has amazed us all, getting to our target with 26 days to spare. But as all football fans know, it isn't over until the final whistle!

Because of the efforts of our backers we are now happy to announce that we are starting a new phase of the campaign called "overfunding". It's about keeping the momentum going. The function room is now funded, but additional pledges will go a long way towards kitting out other parts of the ground.

A key part of servicing the function room and community space for meetings and events will be the kitchen facility which is right next door to the function room. We need to ensure that we have a fully fitted kitchen to allow us to be self-sufficient for catered events and on a match day. We reckon that we need to raise around £20k to buy what we need to kit out the kitchen and with your help, we think we have a great chance of doing it.

- If we raise another £5,000 we can buy all the crockery, cutlery and glassware we need.

- An extra £10,000 above target will enable us to get a commercial toaster, a mixer, large liquidiser, full set of pans, roasting and baking trays and storage equipment.

- Going £15,000 over our target gets us a commercial fridge freezer and an oven.

- And if we raise another £20,000, our final target, then that means we can completely fit out the kitchen with everything we need including microwaves, food warmers and a coffee maker.

As an added incentive we are today launching two tasty new kitchen-themed rewards:

£75 – An item on the menu will be named after you on a matchday.

£200 – A meal for four in the function room at a special evening celebration event on Thursday 4 December 2014.

Please share the success story of our campaign, and let people know that we're not quitting at £26k. We believe we can keep going and with your help we can continue to Kit it Out!
