Seasiders smash Crowdfunder target!

Over £7,000 raised to help Felixstowe & Walton United FC plug the shortfall caused by the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown


Once again you've done us proud by helping us smash through our target of £5,000 to raise a phenomenal £7,102 in our Crowdfunder campaign.

The Club have been severely impacted by the pandemic, with the loss of key sponsorship, events cancelled and matchday income decimated. The funds raised will go a long way to filling the financial black hole we were facing, every pound really making a difference throughout the Club from Juniors to Seniors.

Thank you to everyone who donated and shared our campaign to help make it another incredible success story.

All those who donated and chose a reward will be contacted over the coming days and weeks to arrange your rewards.

You can read our campaign story below...and its not too late to donate! Donations can still be made and added to the total by visiting the campaign page here-


Campaign Story-

As a Community club at the heart of the local area, we are aware of the devastating impact that COVID-19 is having on all aspects of life.

We're raising £5000 (or more!) to help Felixstowe & Walton United FC plug the shortfall caused by the COVIS -19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown.

Following the premature end to the 2019/20 season due to the cornonavirus pandemic and the subsequent forced closure of the clubhouse, The Seasiders have lost nearly all of its revenue streams- matchday income, club shop purchases, bar takings, clubhouse hire, as well as a multitude of planned events including Junior Presentation Day, Senior Presentation, Sportsman's Dinner, Gin Festival, Tournaments, the hosting of County Cup Finals, not to mention Euro 2020 and the planned big screen on the pitch. The Clubs biggest fundraiser- Felixstowe Firework Spectacular- is almost certain to be cancelled too.

Although we have worked hard to stabilise the club during current pandemic, with the loss of sponsorship, bills to pay, ground maintenance to cover, and no clarification on when the next season will commence, due to social distancing rules, it is unclear when we will be able to generate vital income to keep the club progressing forward.

Any funds donated will be spread across the whole club, including the Junior Section, general club bills and also the Reserve and First Team, because a thriving, successful club on the pitch will further help increase revenues off the pitch.

But we don't just want to approach you with a begging bowl in hand. That's why there are a number of 'rewards' for any donations we receive.

From a prize draw entry in return for a £5 donation, mascot packages, VIP matchdays, entry on the Wall Of Fame... right upto Platinum Lifetime Season Tickets! You'll find all the details of the Crowdfunder and the associated rewards here-

The Crowdfunder lasts for 4 weeks and everyone making a donation will be contacted in due course to arrange your award.
