We’ve only gone and done it! - £46k raised in only eight weeks
Amazing! When we first started our Kit it Out campaign we were worried that we were setting too ambitious a target with £26k to be raised in two months. We were proven wrong when our members, fans and supporters beat our target in half that time! We entered overfunding with a confident, but equally ambitious, £46k target. Incredibly, on the last day of the campaign we have broken through our overfunding target and are currently setting a new Crowdfunder record.
With the target beaten and the project ending at 17:28 today, we can say with pride that we have now raised the money to kit out the football ground of our dreams. The function room and kitchen at Broadhurst Park will be instrumental in FC United fulfilling its commitments to the community it will soon call home.
The function room will be the central hub of volunteering and community activities run by FC United across Greater Manchester. The kitchen will ensure that these activities will be well fuelled with food and cuppas, and we aim to use it as a facility to provide young people with training in catering.
None of this would have been possible without the people who have pledged to our Kit it Out project, and those who have shared it with friends, family and on social media. This really is a fantastic achievement of which we can all feel very proud. Additional funds can continue to be made until the time runs out later today. Any extra on top will also go towards the Broadhurst Park development fund.
We will be having a Kit it Out celebration meal on Thursday 4 December 2014 in the very function room we are funding in this campaign, eating food served from the very kitchen we are funding. Please join us by pledging for the meal rewards for what should be a great evening.
Broadhurst Park will be opening later this year and we hope to see as many of our backers there next season so they can see first-hand what a difference they have made.
Thank you so much for helping us Kit it Out!
