Who are we?
We are Waunarlwydd Galaxy AFC CIC, a not-for-profit, amateur football club, based in Swansea. We run junior teams for girls and boys from ages 3 up to 13. Our senior section has three league teams and two teams for older players in the form of an over 40's and over 55's team. Our club has hundreds of playing members with our youngest player just 3 years old and our oldest registered player aged 71!
Why are we raising funds?
For a number of years, our facility has been blighted by the intrusion of motorbikes and other motor vehicles. We have experienced several near-misses with bikes that have entered our facility at speed while our children have been training and playing. We want to ensure the safety of our players by stopping access to our facility for motorbikes and vehicles.
What will the funds be spent on?
All funds raised will be used to purchase 1.8m anti-climb paramesh fencing that will be installed in areas where vehicles can access our facility.
How can we reward you?
Every pledge towards our goal is immensely appreciated by everyone at Waunarlwydd Galaxy AFC. We have a number of rewards for those who support our bid to protect our players.
