Dean Warner here, Chairman of Framlingham Town FC ('The Castlemen'), a grassroots football club with a 130 plus year history and run solely by volunteers.
On the 16th December 2020, at approximately 6.30pm the entrance gate/pay booth to the main ground was torched in a confirmed arson attack and as you can see by the picture, little remains. The fire also caused substantial damage to the perimeter fencing.
It goes without saying that this event has caused the club much upset, anger, stress & frustration especially with the unprecedented times everyone has endured and continues to endure with Covid-19.
Like all grassroots sports clubs, the ability to fund raise has been severely curtailed with the previous 10 months being very hard, made worse by the restrictions on refreshments and alcohol sales on match days!
On behalf of Framlingham Town FC, I am therefore appealing to everyone that knows 'The Castlemen' across Suffolk whether they be friends, supporters, associate's or otherwise to help us raise much needed funds to allow us to replace our entry gate/pay booth and perimeter fencing asap with a more secure building?
I fully appreciate that this year has been financially challenging for everyone around the country but hope collectively through your generosity we can reach our target?
That leaves me just to say thank you for taking the time to read this and any donation will be gratefully received.
Lets hope that 2021 will be a better experience for us all!
Thank you for your support!
