    Thumbs up Sons Football Sponsored Walk

    Hi All,

    I wonder if you all could dig deep and check for the odd £1 stuck down behind the sofa

    My sons football team are doing a sponsored walk, to help raise funds for the new equipment that we have to buy. Currently he is in an Under 10 side (Rushmoor Eagles Under 10) where they play in the NEHYL U10's Div 3 on Saturday mornings where they have been promoted each year and gradually climbing the ranks , he is the goalkeeper, dont ask me how that came about as he used to be a forward , was scoring and then decided to play in goals (lazy Git)

    http://www.rushmoorsaints.com/club/70742/Home

    Anyhow we are having a family sponsored walk, as the FA have introduced new rules , so instead of going from 7 a side small pitch and small goals up to full size pitch 11 a side, they have introduced 9 a side football , where the goals and the pitch measure 3/4 of the full size, which is great news and wont take the skill out the game with massive great lobs from the halfway line ,

    All this comes at a cost to the team and have to fund their own goalposts and also have to pay fees to have their current ground adapted to suit the new FA rules ,

    So i as my fellow members to sponsor him and the team doing their walk on the 31st March (which is also on their website) i am not looking for lots as there will be quite a few families doing it, but if you could donate a £1 or £2 that would be more than generous, i have asked the manager for an approx costs for these goals and i will let you know

    I have created a donate button linked to my Paypal account, I tried to set up a donations page but all i found was charity pages, the football team arent a charity so i couldnt do it this way, and hence PP was the only way and i have cleared this with ADMIN , if you have any doubts over my honesty surrounding this then dont donate, those of you that know me, know i am genuine

    I am hoping to get one of those big cheques and hopefully have a few quid to donate, if the Vec C admin are happy i will donate it from them with pictures of course , maybe Bob can present it as he is our RO along with our ARO Happy Postie if their free

    You will also see that the child that raises the most funds can win a £50 game card, i would be happy to give this to charity or raffle it on here with the names being pulled from a hat from the folk that have donated and all suggestions are welcome what to do with it , i have attached the sponsor form and will update if i receive any donations


    Any questions please ask,

    Hi Guys,

    I have just called PP as they have taken a £0.27p charge on the £2 that Merikiito donated and i think this is a disgrace so basically its 3.4% + 20p of every donation,

    So feel free to use the button or can you gift the money tothe below account to save on charges, as i think all donations should go to the football club and no charges to Paypal, they have suggested i use "Micro Payments" where it will set a 5% +5p payment on the donations , effictively £0.15p for every donation of £2 which am still not happy about
