Help Buckingham fund their Euro Indoor Club Cup

Donation protected
Please help Buckingham Hockey Club fund their trip to represent England at the European Indoor Club Cup in Turkey in February.

Why do they need gofundme support? Well, for the second time in the club’s history, the Buckingham Ladies indoor team have qualified to represent England in the European Championships, in Antalya, Turkey, in February. They will be competing with fully professional European squads - and each of the Buckingham players, all of whom have full time jobs, will be paying for that privilege.

Buckingham were only announced by England Hockey as England’s representatives on the 18th October, which has left an extremely short timeframe for the club to raise the funds required to go.

Buckingham Hockey Club is not even the biggest hockey club in the County. In fact, Buckinghamshire has several clubs which are much larger, but none that have matched Buckingham's success in recent years. Buckingham Ladies first team have been competing in the England Hockey National League for over ten years, a large part of which has been spent in the top half of the Premier League. As well as performing at a high level outdoors, Buckingham have been competing in the Indoor Premier League for the last 4 years and have been finalists in the competition on three of these four occasions, winning the competition in 2020. This year, Buckingham hope to repeat their domestic success of 2020, and also perform well in the 2024 European Championship.

Unlike the big clubs it competes with, Buckingham can’t afford to pay players. This season, it doesn’t have a club sponsor - so its success is down to excellent coaching and a talented and committed squad, who play for the love of sport, and each other. The nearest they get to financial rewards is a home-made pie at training every time they win.

We hope you agree they deserve some help. Not many supporters will be able to afford to travel with the squad, but we think people may want to contribute to their travel, accommodation, physiotherapy and coaching costs.

They will be grateful for any support you are able to give - and as important as any financial assistance they receive - will be the knowledge that there are a bunch of people in the U.K. rooting for them!

To help inspire people to donate, the squad have set themselves the challenge of travelling the 4936 miles to Antalya in the month of December. The squad will be walking, running or rowing the distance to their European Cup destination in 31 days. Google predicts 34 days; the squad’s challenge is to try and beat this. Please sponsor their effort on this GoFundMe page.

Thank you
