Wickwar Wanderers Football Club is delighted to announce that they have secured very generous grants from the Nibley Music Festival community fund and Bromford (Merlin) Housing Association community fund.
The Nibley Music Festival money will fund a significant proportion of the amount required to replace our very old and decrepit fundraising equipment. Many of you will have attended our regular annual fundraising events, and hopefully enjoyed the refreshments that go a long way towards the money raised at these events. We have struggled on with the old barbecue, freezer and fridges used at these events but were fully aware that they were all on their last legs (Hence the rather soft ice-cream and warm beer we ended up serving at this year’s Football Frolics event!!). We are now in a position to buy new equipment that will allow us to keep raising our own funds for many years to come.
The Bromford money will fund complete new kit for our U15 team and go part way towards the U9 team kit. This replacement kit is much needed, as at the moment the players have to wear mismatched kit with duplicate numbers.
