FoBCFC donates almost £10,000 to City community projects!


Friends of Bradford City in the last few weeks have donated almost £10,000 to City projects. The money has been split between Bradford City Women’s Football Club and Bradford City Community Foundation.

Bradford City Women's Football Club provides opportunities for women and girls of all ages to train and play football at the highest possible level in the English football leagues. They are one of the biggest women's football clubs in the area and welcome players of all ages and ability. The club is run by a willing band of unpaid volunteers.

Bradford City F.C. Community Foundation was set up in 1988 by the PFA.  Their initial aim at that time was to promote BCFC in the community by increasing the fan base and awareness of the Club. The Community Foundation works within schools, but over the years has extended it's reach into the community working with groups and individuals of all ages, races, backgrounds, beliefs and abilities and is a well-liked organisation in the community.

These funds donated by Friends of Bradford City will go a long way and be spent within the wider Bradford City community on very worthwhile projects.

As always, Thank You for your support.
