We are very proud of our Community ethos at AFC Wimbledon.
As part of that, in the season that has just ended we had three great charity events at home matches: Men United (Prostate Cancer UK), The Alzheimer's Society and most recently the Paul Strank Charitable Trust with High Path.
Next season, we are already committed to working again with Prostate Cancer UK so we have room for two other charities. We are now asking for applications and will ask the fans to vote for the ones they wish to support.
The selected charities will get the opportunity of the following.
A bucket collection at a Saturday home game supported by promotions including:
• An article in the programme for the same game
• An article on the official site
• Social media publicity
We are also offering free use of our function suites for an event of your choice.
In addition, we are open to be approached about other ways of working together: for example, last season we carried out awareness training in conjunction with the Alzheimer's Society.
Charities will need to staff all events and collections with your own volunteers but we will work with you to draw on our experience on how to make your day as successful as possible.
Interested charities should send a brief application, setting out the name and objectives of your charity and, where applicable, any local initiatives you are conducting. The deadline for applications is Friday 16 June.
Please apply via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title 'Charity Collection'.
