Why are we crowdfunding?

The widespread impact of rising costs and inflation is keenly felt across diverse sectors, affecting both individuals and organisations alike. Non-league football, such as Woodbridge Town FC, a cherished pillar of community involvement, is not immune to these economic strains.

Although Woodbridge Town FC has admirably weathered the financial storms exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic without turning to crowdfunding, recent times have brought forth unprecedented challenges. A significant spike in gas prices by 300%, coupled with a series of home match postponements due to waterlogged pitches, has placed considerable strain on the club's finances.

Adding to these difficulties is the urgent need for a new boiler for the clubhouse, crucial for ensuring smooth operations during matchdays and other club activities. This boiler, a relic from the early days of Notcutts Park, where a memorable clash with Arsenal drew a record crowd of 3000, faithfully served the club for 34 years before its condemnation. Its malfunction presents Woodbridge Town FC with a critical dilemma, making the organisation of essential club functions notably challenging, if not unfeasible.

Given these circumstances, the idea of crowdfunding emerges as a crucial means of support for Woodbridge Town FC. More than just financial assistance, it symbolises a call to the community, urging supporters, sponsors, and enthusiasts to unite in support of their beloved club during this trying period. It serves as a poignant reminder of the enduring resilience and camaraderie that characterise grassroots football, demonstrating how collective efforts can overcome even the most daunting of obstacles.


How we’ll spend the money raised

100% of the money donated will go towards the new boiler.
