This post is triggered by a discussion on Twitter about the difficulties Abergele Rovers / Kinmel Bay Sports FC football team have been having with sports facilities. The club would like a ground in Abergele which meets the standards asked for by the Welsh FA. That entails having a solid barrier around the pitch and changing facilities near the pitch itself. There’s more about this story in this Pioneer article by Tomos Hughes.
So, whether or not you play your sport in Abergele, here’s a list of links to explore if your sports team or club needs some financial help to buy kit, equipment, goalposts, transport, etc.
There are many other sources of funding available, including Big Lottery, crowdfunding platforms, charitable trusts and foundations, etc. Please feel free to add your suggestions in the Comments.
