Crowdfunder Helps Newquay AFC Raise Facility Refurbishment Funds
Like all grassroots clubs, Newquay AFC has been hit hard by the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
With the club’s stadium already in a poor state of repair and them quickly running out of money, the Peppermints turned to Crowdfunder, rallying their community around a project to refurbish their facilities at Mount Wise Stadium.
The effort caught the eye of Sport England, who work with Crowdfunder to put extra funding into things that improve the sustainability of the grassroots game.
Their £4,000 pledge was followed by a £250 contribution from Cornwall Council, bringing the final total to more than £10,000.
Now there’s a new buzz around the club, who are already thinking about what comes next.
Crowdfunder is the UK’s biggest crowdfunding platform, raising over £100m for communities in the UK. It has £10m in extra funding for projects, depending on what they’re doing and where. For grassroots sport there is £2.5m available with pledges of up to £10,000 to support clubs through the pandemic.
