The Holbeach Bank Football Club was broken into and badly vandalised earlier this year, making the clubhouse unusable.
The club wish to refurbish the clubhouse and make it in to a social hub so that the whole community can benefit from it. The Craft Outlet Store (in Springfields, Spalding) heard about their plans and offered the museum space at the back of the store for the club to hold a fundraiser.
The owner and staff all believe that it’s important to support the community that you live in, so wanted to do something to help.
On Sunday, August 24 the club sold coffee and cake, ran kids’ ball games, had a face painter and did football-inspired crafts. The children really enjoyed getting covered in paint and glitter and of course a nice bit of cake.
The day raised £120. The club would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to support the event and the staff of the Craft Outlet for all their help.
If anyone is interested in further fundraising ideas or wish to make a donation, or even has some building materials they want to donate please contact Robert Shortland on 07956987483.
