We aim to keep kids playing football that come from low income families by easing the financial pressure by providing free football wherever we can

We are a community charter standard grassroots club that prides ourselves in never turning a child away regardless of ability or background but we have come across a problem some low income families have 2/3 children and can't always afford to send them to football or to buy them new boots as children grow very fast so we aim to have a scheme put in place to help low income families by easing any financial stresses that may come from their children wanting to play football by trying to provide cheaper if not free football the more we raise the more we can relieve some of the difficulties these families may have

What we'll deliver:

  • Lower cost for training and games
  • Provide a boot fund for children who grow out of their boots quickly

Why it's a great idea:

As a mum of 3 boys myself I understand how expensive it can get when paying their registration fees and subs every week and also how quickly they grow and that not all families can afford it so as youth secretary I am to be able to relieve the financial pressures and allow these children to play football without the parents having to worry if they can afford to send their child/children as the way I see it all children deserve the chance to shine and who knows they could be a future star of English football and if I can help these children enjoy the sport and achieve something great I will

Steps to get it done:

  • Getting 10 new children from low income families involved
