The Society Board is delighted to publicise and support this one off trip which has been planned and funded through the efforts of the parents and kids and is to be hosted by the Valencia CF Academy and Youth Coaches.

The camp takes place between the 6th and 9th April 2018 and is guaranteed to benefit the kids hugely in terms of player development and team bonding as well as the promotion of healthy work ethics and cultural awareness. Furthermore this opportunity is coming at a perfect time in the youngsters’ development as the under-12’s (now going on under-13) are about to enter a key stage jumping up into the big world of an 11-aside pitch.

To date the parents and kids have successfully run a number of fundraising events including the clean-up at Dens following the July Festival inside the Bobby Cox Stand where they also ran a sweet/candy stall. This activity kicked off a chain of fundraisers throughout the summer including; car washing, bag packing in Tesco and a Race Night.

When the colder months set in the parents and kids ran Bonus Ball Sales for Christmas Hampers, and a Quiz night was hosted by one of the grandparents. The parents and kids are now planning to be out with their fund raising buckets at Dens in February and have a second quiz night planned on 3rd of March.

NB: They really have worked tirelessly on fundraising over the past year however they’re still short of their target and the Society Directors are keen to encourage members to consider providing a bit of additional support to the fundraising efforts.
