Applications re-open for Cherries Community Fund donations


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

The club are delighted to announce that applications have reopened for Cherries Community Fund donations.

After having to close applications due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, which meant matches had to be played behind closed doors, we are again raising monies through AFC Bournemouth's popular half-time Cherries Community Draw.

The draw gives supporters the chance to win cash prizes while helping the local community through the Cherries Community Fund, with money also raised through the matchday auctions in the hospitality suites.

The fund would now welcome applications for donations which will continue across the year, with several worthy causes having benefitted since the scheme started in January 2016 and a total of £162,047.80 handed out.

The project has supported a wide variety of organisations in the local area including the following:

  • Helping several football clubs purchase kit and equipment.
  • Helping local schools buy specialist equipment.
  • Supporting a variety of community projects including street safety.
  • Helping adults with learning difficulties.
  • Help to sustain various support groups with the homeless across Bournemouth.

The excellent work and charitable donations will continue throughout the 2021/22 campaign as the panel will meet quarterly in 2022. These are scheduled for March, June, September, and December and will see distributions go back into the local community.

Please note, the next panel meeting will be in March, so applications received by the end of February will be reviewed at this panel. Applications are still welcomed after this date for the subsequent panel meetings.
