The Stand Together Campaign was formed in 2019 by a group of supporters to raise a £50,000 contribution towards the re-building of the Clubhouse which was destroyed by fire in June 2019.
The Campaign is delighted to announce that it has been instrumental in securing for the football club a £75,000 Community and Environment Fund grant from HS2. This grant will be used to help rebuild the clubhouse
Graham Shaw, Chair of the Campaign Group, said
We are very grateful to HS2 for their very generous contribution towards the rebuilding of the clubhouse. Its loss has been sorely felt not only by the Football Club but by the broader Brackley community.
As a campaign group, we set ourselves the challenging target of raising £50,000 within 12 months. I am delighted to announce that with the sums already raised and the grant from HS2, the Campaign has smashed this target and has raised nearly £90,000 for the project.
I am very grateful to everyone at both the club and the wider Brackley Community for supporting us so magnificently. We are now bringing the Campaign to a close but our sale of personalised bricks will continue until the end of July. The bricks will be built into the fabric of the new clubhouse as a lasting reminder of the support given by supporters and local people in the town to the re-building of this important community facility.
I would also like to thank my fellow committee members for all their hard work, enthusiasm and humour over the past 12 months.
