Funding level: Up to £1,000

Boldmere St Michaels Under 8s Bears are a local football team for boys and girls aged under 8. The team was founded in May 2017. The team is affiliated with Boldmere St Michaels Football Club and we play every week in the Central Warwickshire Junior League. The team is run by Jonathan Hughes & Ben Davey, who are the Father & Uncle of two of the team members. The managers are voluntary and receive additional voluntary support given in time, transport and money by parents and family members of the whole team and by way of fund raising events where possible. The team receive encouragement and support to help promote working together, building positive relationships and staying healthy. Since the team began we have reached the finals of a local pre-season tournament and hope to go a stage further this season & try and win one of the cup competitions.

Our application is for £1000 under the Health and Wellbeing category. Finding continuing funding for the team is always a struggle. We have in the past managed to secure sponsorship from local businesses, but in the current financial market this is proving more difficult. We do have excellent support from parents and the subs we collect are all put back into the club, but we try to keep these at a low level to ensure we can accommodate children from all walks of life into the team.

If we were successful in our application for £1000 this would mean the team can continue for many years to come, with the purchase of kit, training/playing locations, training equipment, transportation costs and well deserved supported awards evenings and days out where we can acknowledge the achievements and progress made of each team member.
