Fundraiser for new grassroots football initiative Saturday 21st March
The Football Beyond Borders charity launches a new and exciting youth-led media channel, FBBTV with a fundraising night of football, film and music at Dulwich Hamlet FC on Saturday 21 March.
Football Beyond Borders combines football training sessions by FA qualified coaches with mentoring and tutoring programmes focused on giving educational and employment support to young people in some of London’s most deprived estates and schools.
Participants also work towards fundraising and organising an annual international football tour.
Saturday’s fundraiser will include the exclusive premiere screenings of two short films that FBBTV have produced in conjuction with their young participants and producers, featuring two of non-league football’s finest clubs: Dulwich Hamlet FC and Clapton FC.
The screenings will be followed by some fantastic live music & tunes from some very special guest DJs (Star.One – one of London’s most exciting young producers).
Other exciting fundraising plans for the night including raffles, live drawing and other fun activities and all proceeds from ticket sales for the event will go to help Football Beyond Borders reach their crowdfunding target to buy the equipment they need to make their charity media channel an ongoing success.
Entry for Saturday’s fundraiser will be FREE for anyone who has already donated £10 or over to the FBB TV Crowdfunder (bring a printout of your donation email please!).
Entry will also be on “suggested donation” basis for Dulwich Hamlet and Clapton fans with a matchday ticket (please hold onto your ticket stubs) or club scarves / badges.
Any groups of Duwlich or Clapton fans interested in coming on the day should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Football Beyond Beyond Borders is aiming to crowd fund £7,500 and is just over half the way there at the time of writing.
