Your Community Football Club!
As many of you know the COVID-19 pandemic has really hit lots of businesses hard in the UK.
As a community interest non-league football club we also been affected by the pandemic. We have lost all of our revenue streams into the club since our last home game on the 14th March. Unfortunately, we still have many outgoing commitments that need to be covered. The club is run by volunteers who give up their own time to keep this historic club going. We have held out as long as we possibly can on asking our amazing fans, community and the general public for their support but unfortunately with us not knowing when the new season start, we have to act now to make sure that we can keep this club and its history going for many more years.
Your kind donations will help cover the essential bills as well as going towards urgent maintenance and upkeep of the club during closed season.
Before the pandemic hit we were in the process of introducing more teams into our youth football between u6's to u15's, and also starting our own wildcats initiative that would have started the process of Cables having girls teams in similar age groups to the youth teams, with the ultimate goal of a fully fledged women's first team.
One of the key things we also want to start is a charity arm to the club, this will allow the club to become fully immersed in the local community on a significantly higher level. This will allow us to help the most at need in the local community, with the club lying in an area in the lowest 2% of depravity in the country, we don't to do our bit to make people's lives easier.
Currently we have managed to do a few projects that were absolutely essential to the club like:
The upgrading of our security systems
Changing room repairs
Please don't feel pressured into donating funds to the club if you are unable to. The last thing we want is to put more pressure on our loyal fans and supporters during these tough times. If you cannot donate but would like to help, we will also be hosting a volunteer day where there will be many jobs to carry out which you may be able to support with.
If the fundraiser raises over £10,000, we will donate 10% of anything above this to local community groups in Prescot
If you need further information on the volunteer day, or any other ways you may be able to help then please contact the club through the website or our social media channels.
