The 2011 Big Fundraiser – Roads to Wembley


Still time to sponsor us either on or by Text by sending WEMB11 £10 or £1-£5 to 70070 .

After last year’s big walk from Peterborough United to Nottingham Forest we have decided to go even further this year in our quest to raise money to give deserving children days out at football.

On Thursday 26th May a group of us will be setting out to walk from Barnet FC to Wembley Stadium… the twist is that we will visit the other 12 London football clubs on the way! In total we will walk just over 73 and a half miles, arriving at Wembley on the evening of The Champions League Final, Saturday 28th May.

We would love to see as many people as possible on the way, whether you want to pop along to greet us at the grounds or even join us for a leg of the journey. Everybody is welcome!

We have set up a Just Giving Page here : if you would like to donate online, alternatively all of the team will have old-style paper sponsor forms.

More news as we get closer to the date.
