A volunteer football coach from Milton Keynes will be running the marathon in a bid to raise funds to replace vandalised football goals.
A volunteer football coach from a local grassroots football club, Tattenhoe Youth FC, is running Milton Keynes Marathon in a bid to raise funds to replace vandalised goals.
At the end of summer, Junior 11-a-side goals at Medbourne Pavilion were vandalised. Despite efforts to make temporary repairs, the goals are now unsafe to use.
Tattenhoe Youth FC sees around 400 boys and girls play football or participate in junior sessions each week, the club is entirely run by dedicated volunteers.
Now, the volunteers face a challenge of raising £3500 to replace the goals. The team has successfully received a £1400 grant from the Football Foundation. However, they still need to raise a substantial amount of £2100.
Volunteer coach Dean Hammond has decided to run the Milton Keynes Marathon on May 6th 2024 ,to raise some money to replace the goals.
Hammond has set up a GoFundMe link in a bid to rally in some funds.
