Arson causes £10,000 of damage to Birchwood Colts JFC equipment

Arsonists have caused misery and heartache to Birchwood Colts JFC, a junior football club from Birchwood.

On the evening of the 23rd one of the Birchwood Colts children’s football club containers was set on fire causing thousands of pounds worth of damage. This football club runs as a facility for young children to enjoy football, a real grass roots football club.

A lot of equipment was destroyed in the fire including a kitchen facility that provides essential fund raising for the club. Kits, balls and other training equipment was also destroyed.

They are devastated as this is a grassroots club for children aged 5-16 years old, giving kids in the local community the opportunity to learn and have fun.

Every single person in the club is a volunteer and we aren’t lucky enough to have a billionaire owner who can replace everything that has been ruined by this arson attack.

If you can help in anyway via equipment donation please get in touch with the club.

Alternatively  the club have set up a Go Fund Me page HERE https://www.gofundme.com/birchwood-colt-container-fire?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=fb_co_shareflow_m
