Boys Raise Funds for Disability Football Club

Monday, 12 June 2017

  • Fundraising for AFC Masters disability football club

Year 9 boys at Bolton School have raised £1,000 for local development disability football club, AFC Masters who are based at Horwich. 

The money was raised through a non-uniform day and Iain Massingham, Founder and General Manager at the club, told the Y9 assembly that the funds will help provide more fun, football and friendships for young people and adults with disabilities. He also told how the FA Chartered Standard Development football club had grown from just two players 11 years to go to its current offering for girls and boys and adults, pan-disability, aged 5 or 6 years through to over 40s. The club plays in leagues and tournaments and trains at the Sports Dome, Horwich. You can see a video about the club here.

A recent leaver of Bolton School, James Roberts, went on to captain England's cerebral palsy development squad.
