I am swimming a 5km course around the beautiful Alton Waters in Suffolk.
My son plays for the U11s SWCFC BLACKS. This is their story:
Uttlesford District is one of only two districts in Essex that do not have a FA approved quality 3G Artificial Grass Pitch. FA research suggests Saffron Walden alone should have 4.
In order to support the amazing success and growth of both SWCFC and SWPSG, our young players deserve better facilities.
We have secured significant funding from the FA to go ahead with this project and has the full support from SWCHS, where this pitch will be built and approved to FIFA, UEFA and FA standards.
We now need to raise £100,000 from the community in order to qualify for the additional funding. This sporting facility will benefit the town and surrounding areas and also enable the clubs to expand into new areas such as disability football.
Please support me and help create a legacy for our children to enjoy for many years to come.
