Over the course of this season, we are going to help raise money for Wood Street Mission. This is a registered children’s charity and whose focus remains unchanged throughout our history. They are here to help alleviate the effects of poverty on local children and their families.
As a club, we have made the decision to donate all of our proceeds taken from our Christmas party to this very worthy cause.
Our event will take place on Friday 6 December and will be held at The Clubhouse (Ford Lane, Didsbury). If anyone would like to come along to this, tickets are priced at £10 and there will be a strict Chistmas Jumper policy on the door! We have a Karaoke DJ booked so this is sure to be an entertaining evening and will hopefully help us raise lots of cash. For tickets, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can tweet us at @AFCDidsbury.
A big thank you goes to Didsbury Sports Ground Limited for allowing us to hold the party at the newly refurbished venue and also to our sponsors, Fosters Fish
& Chips, who will be providing food for the event.
If you are busy on this date but would still like help, there are many ways in which you can do so. We are currently looking for people to donate prizes for our raffle or provide gifts to help our contribution to the Children at Christmas Appeal (see below) so please get in touch. If you would prefer to make a cash donation, you can do so by visiting the Wood Street Mission website, using the link at the top of this page.
Having already begun to enjoy our new home pitch at Ford Lane, the lads are now looking forward to celebrating their home wins with a pint. The new clubhouse is due to open on Sunday 27 October and here are some pictures of the newly refurbished bar area.
