Apply for club matchday collections
AFC Wimbledon are welcoming nominations from charities to be selected for one of our matchday collections.
Every year we receive many requests from charities requesting to hold a collection on a matchday. The need to balance these requests with Dons Trust and similar activities means we have allocated three matches for charity collections this season. One of these has been allocated to the Football League's charity of the season and this therefore leaves two places up for grabs.
We as a club successfully launched this system last year with Born Too Soon and My Voice London the two charities to benefit. We will once again ask AFC Wimbledon supporters to vote on the charities that should be chosen, but first we need nominations to compile a shortlist.
The rules for applications are simple:
1 The nomination must come direct from the charity itself.
2 It must give a contact name and details of the charity's purpose - a link to the relevant web site will be enough.
3 The charity must be willing to commit to sending 12-15 volunteers on the selected matchday with the representatives in position by 12.30 pm.
4 Nominations must be received by no later than 5.00 pm on Monday, 13 August, 2012.
5 Selected charities (i.e. the ones the fans vote for) must provide copy for both the programme and web site for the relevant match. Clearly, this need not be prepared until the vote is complete and the relevant charities are selected.
The club undertakes to provide access to our facilities and support for the charities chosen to help make the day as successful as possible.
Fans may bring this opportunity to the attention of a charity they support, but we will only accept nominations directly from the charity itself so that we know they are committed to the event.
Nominations should be e-mailed by clicking on charity fundraising
