Brackley Town Football Club announce fund-raising campaign for new clubhouse
With the football season starting next Saturday, Brackley Town Football Club will be launching its Stand Together campaign to raise £50,000 to help with the re-development of the club’s clubhouse that was destroyed by fire earlier this year.
The initiative, which is supported by the club’s board, has been formed by a group of supporters and is being led by Graham Shaw, the club’s commercial manager. The campaign, which is expected to last through to June of next year, will feature a number of initiatives to raise monies to help with the re-development of the clubhouse.
Shaw commented: The loss of the clubhouse has been a tremendous shock to all of us in Brackley. The clubhouse has been a pivotal part of the local community for the past forty years. It has held christenings, birthday parties, wedding receptions, anniversary celebrations as well as, for the past three years, hosting our award-winning Community programme.
Whilst the clubhouse was insured, we know that in addition to any recovered sums we will need to raise a substantial sum to provide a clubhouse that not only meets our current needs but which can also stand as a great community asset for, at least, the next forty years.
The team have set up a GoFundMe Page - Brackley Town FC Stand Together - and bucket collections from the first three friendlies of the season against Oxford United, MK Dons and Northampton has raised over £2000.
