Raising funds for ELLINGTON JUNIORS FCA fundraising project by claire buzzeo
Myself and two of my Sons George & Thomas have set ourselves a few challenges to raise funds for the long awaited and much needed clubhouse for Ellington Juniors FC.
I am currently Manager & Coach of Ellington Juniors Under 11 Boys team and feel that the new clubhouse will make a huge difference to not only our children and coaches but to the local community and surrounding areas.
Ellington Juniors FC were formed in 1988 and are a Charter Standard Club with teams ranging from Under 7s to Under 21s. Every weekend over 150 children are somewhere playing football for Ellington Juniors.
The amount of money the club required for the building of this project was a staggering £800,000+ .
To date they have raised due to various other fundraising activities and the hard work and effort from the Development Committee a total of £600,000 to reach their target, this is where My boys and I have decided to help out and reach out to everyone and anyone to help them fulfil their dream of owning their own clubhouse and pitches and to try and raise as much money as we can to help.
