Fundraising for the Trust

11 August 2017

Paul and Donna from Bury FC Boys and Girls Disability Teams would like to say a big thank you to long standing supporters, not only of Bury FC, but also supporters of Bury FC - The Trust, Paul and Ben Fox

On numerous occasions, they have raised money for The Trust, with their latest fundraiser raising £600 for Bury FC Boys and Girls Disability Teams.

 

Bury FC - The Trust are delighted to accept this kind donation towards Bury FC Boys and Girls Disability Teams as this will go a long way for the team and will help provide them with new equipment going into the new season.

 

Paul Fox added, ”We started raising money in May 2015 when the Bury FC Disabled Supporters minibus needed funds to keep it going. I did a painting of the Bury main stand and got it signed by the staff and players, which then got auctioned off on Facebook for £220.01. From this, I decided to get items signed by the team and auction them to raise more for other charities.

 

In Feb 2016 we decided to start a charity group on Facebook called (Paul & Ben’s Charity Auctions/Raffles Bury) and from May 2015 to May 2016 we raised just over £4000 auctioning and raffling signed memorabilia.’’

 

Paul and Ben's charity auctions were nominated for the Pride of Bury Fundraiser Hero award and got in the final 3 in October 2016. The group is still going strong, and they have raised over £15,000 in their second year having helped over 50 various charities such as Bury FC Boys and Girls Disability Teams, Annabelle’s Challenge, Super Josh, The Mayor’s Charity and Bleakholt.

 

Paul and Ben are true inspirations and its only right that they should receive all of the praise and recognition they deserve. They would also like your help in the Pride of Bury 2017 Awards, so please click the link below to place your vote!
