This is a fundraiser that we had planned to do in April, so that the whole club could raise funds for the extension. However we are hopeful that other pot(s) of money may help towards the extension so we are looking to complete a fundraiser to help level our major dips/undulations we have on both of our pitches. A job not normally able to be completed due to cricket and football overlapping, so now is an obvious result to doing this. It has been estimated by contractors that 410-420tons of material is going to be needed and their time, a total projected cost of £7,000 but we have this window of opportunity not normally given.
PLEASE DONATE WHAT YOU CAN, WE APPRECIATE THE HARD TIMES WE ALL CURRENTLY LIVE IN. The target is aspirational and whatever we can raise will be amazing. You could decide to donate 50p per mile (or less), you could donate a sum of money or just join in for participation. If you do decide to donate and give over £25, you can recieve a FREE club hat or scarf, if you donate more than £50 you can recieve a club hat or scarf & club umbrella or mug.
Instead of going to borne fit, as orginally planned, we are asking people to let us know how many miles they have done, out with their family/individually and it does not, just need to be pedalling it could also be walking, jogging or running too. The route will go around our league clubs in England & Scotland. It will start at St Day AFC and end at Wembley with the total needing to be covered is 3458.6 miles and is 136 grounds in total.
Please can you communicate your miles by downloading the app - Strava or just email/texting/commenting to Pete Carpenter who will keep the running total going. Every time we reach a league club, we will upload where we are with that club badge on social media.We are looking for the whole club; children, adults, families etc to help towards gaining the total and joining in with anyway they can to rack up the mileage and allow the club to complete this project. No better time to start than this beautiful bank holiday weekend.
So start Pedalling to levelling by helping us reach Wembley.
