Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding for
All Weather Multi Use Court

Together with our local donors, sponsors and sporting grants we have created a fabulous space.  But we want to do more for our community.  We want to offer an all inclusive space where we can host more sports, all year round, 24/7.

We can achieve this with the installation of a multi use court which will cost £115,000.  We already have grants and pledges for £76,000 of this plus we aim to raise £9,000 from ABSA Fest on June 8th and June 9th 2024.

This leaves us with a £30,000 shortfall which we hope to raise through crowdfunding.

All donations, whatever the size will make this dream for our community come true.

Get involved! Villagers Fundraising and Helping

This is an exciting opportunity for the whole village to come together to create and use an amazing, unique and invaluable space for all to play sports and hold events.

 

This is the ideal space for village events, gatherings, parties, coffee mornings and friendly get-togethers and we welcome all enquiries about use of the ground. 

We are always happy for people who wish to help with the fundraising, whether you have an idea or just want to lend a hand.

If you would like to help in any way please get in touch.

ABSA will continue to seek feedback from all organisations, groups and individuals on the effectiveness of the facility and needs and concerns.  

Fundraising Past, Present & Future

ABSA has a strong track record of raising money and, over the past eight years has raised £288,000 to fund and deliver the groundworks and ECB cricket pitch; plus £352,000 to fund the football pitches, car park and temporary changing facilities.

The income was generated from a wide variety of sources including: leadership gifts from the board, donations from individuals, community events & substantial grants from charitable trusts.

 

We are continuing with this fundraising plan to raise funds for Phase III.  Although COVID 19 has had an impact on events and community fundraising, we are confident of raising the £395,000 required as shown below:​

 

Individuals - The local community are huge supporters of this initiative and have made personal gifts of £1 to £50,000 to previous phases. The number of pledged supporters for Phase 3 is similar. 

Events - We held our successful ABSA Fest fundraising events in 2022 and 2023.  We have a different format for ABSA Fest 2024 which we hope the whole community will find appealing.  Additionally, we are absolutely delighted that, now we have our fabulous new bar, which was entirely created from donations and free time from local craftspeople, we can now hold outdoor parties.

 

Trusts and Foundations - We continue to approach local and national grant makers for targeted funding. 

Corporate – We have a partnerships with a number of local businesses and welcome donations and partnerships from other companies who wish to help. See our Sponsors page here

Loan - The England Cricket Board has provided an interest-free loan of £5,000
