Junior Bulls Need Support To Purchase 'Traders Gazebo'


The Junior Bulls would like to purchase a 'Traders Gazebo' which would allow them to use it as a meeting point on matchdays and also at other promotional events in the area.

This from the Junior Bulls:

Since starting up last November the Junior Bulls has gone from strength to strength with over 700 youngsters now joined up, involving 417 individual families! Our emphasis is on engaging youngsters and their families with club activities on matchdays and providing social and fundraising events, all of which is run by a small group of hard working volunteers.
We love to be outside on a matchday meeting and greeting all of our members, but as the cold and dark weather draws in we need to take shelter!
Thanks to Old Market we have recently been undercover thanks to them lending us a gazebo, but our dream is to purchase a professional Traders Gazebo approx 6m x 3m printed with our Club Logo and a sponsors logo. Not only would this be used as a meeting point on matchdays, it would also mean we could attend Trade/Fayre/Country shows to help promote our club throughout the year.
With the average attendance at games being around 2,500 local businesses have reported seeing a benefit from visitors to our City, we would like to offer the opportunity of working with these businesses to help promote both them and us further within the Herefordshire area.
Any businesses interested in joining us in our venture then we’d love to hear from you to discuss more fully.
Please contact Jane Griffiths HFC Junior Bulls Co-ordinator email –  juniorbulls@herefordfc.co.uk
Here are our aims and objectives … HFC Junior Bulls Supporters Club are committed to providing opportunities within the local community for youngsters to get involved with Hereford FC while building a firm foundation for the future of our club.
Our aim is to engage with children and families from a wide and diverse section of the Herefordshire community
The Junior Bulls is an all-inclusive group, and offers children the opportunity to take part in a wide range of physical and social activities no matter what their ability, gender or background
We are a non-profit making organisation run by volunteers relying on members fundraising activities, local businesses and community/sports organisations for sponsorship and grants to enable us to provide a wide variety of activities and events for members and to assist with the purchasing of equipment and the day to day administration costs.
To show our commitment to both the club and the local community we are now in the process of becoming a Community Interest Company (CIC) affiliated to HFC. This means that all assets will be for the benefit of the local community and we’ll be registered with Companies House.
We will continue to build on the following throughout the season while developing new ideas as well. We look forward to you joining us
