Bray Wanderers Players Support Fund

€10,000 goal

Campaign created 11 months ago
Created July 18, 2018
As you may well be aware, players and staff of Bray Wanderers FC have not received payment from the club for several weeks now. Some players even had to pay for  medical procedures out of their own pocket due to the financial turmoil caused by the powers that be at BWFC. Many others have been struggling to pay bills and other vital expenses for a considerable amount of time.

Promises have been made to them and broken. Bray Wanderers Independent Supporters Trust have set up this page in the hope that some money can be raised to help the players and staff at this difficult time. We hope that the people of Bray, the fans of the club and of the League of Ireland can rally together and help make a positive difference to those that represent the club that we love. 

The target goal set here is not enough to resolve the situation. We may well recieve significantly less donations than the amount set. What we would like to achieve is to at least show the players and staff that the true supporters of Bray Wanderers are behind them during this tough period. 

Parting with money is never easy, but neither is going weeks on end without being paid. Any donation big or small would be immensely appreciated. We truly hope that whatever little money we can raise here can help in any small way to those people affected. 

As a final word, ALL money raised from this page will go directly to the players and staff to be distributed as they see appropriate to those who may need it most. Ultimately it may be a drop in a vast ocean but as lifelong Bray fans we feel we could no longer sit idly by and do nothing. 

No money whatsoever will be handed over to the club. We will liaise with the players and donate all money raised here to them via a player/staff representative to help in any way to ease the financial burden they may find themselves under at this time. 

We thank you in advance for your support, 

Till the end, 

Bray Wanderers Independent Supporters Trust.

Dear all,

On behalf of the players and staff of Bray Wanderers FC, and the members of BWIST, we would like to thank you for your incredibly generous donations to the player's fund campaign.

The incredible support we received through donations and well wishes highlighted the support for league of Ireland football in Bray, as well as support for struggling workers in Ireland.

Now that the issues at Bray Wanderers FC have been resolved, and as we have been informed that all players and staff have been paid back in full, we have decided to close this campaign.

Bray Wanderers Independent Supporter's Trust hope to use the money generously donated by all of you to fund projects for the club and community, such as club promotion among local youth teams, schools and local businesses, along with several other plans to ensure a solid future for Bray Wanderers FC.

We reiterate that the BWIST is 100% a fan-run organisation, and a list of our aims for the future can be found on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Any individual who donated to this campaign who does not wish their donation to be used for these goals may request a refund via the gofundme page up to and including the 19/08/18, which the BWIST will honour.

Once again we'd like to thank you all for your incredibly humbling support for our club. We hope to help create a sustainable and prosperous club that the entire Wicklow community can be proud of and your support can help us achieve that.
