AFC Rushden & Diamonds “New Home” Fundraising Campaign

As AFC Rushden & Diamonds begin our move from the Dog and Duck in Wellingborough to within our home area of Rushden and Irthlingborough, we need your help to raise funds for the Club.

As you may be aware the total cost of moving our equipment and achieving the necessary ground grading is £30k.  A huge sum, but if each of our fans (from our average attendances) raises just £55 this will cover the cost entirely!

There are four main ways you can support our “New Home” campaign:

1. General Fundraising


AFC R&D are looking for individuals and groups to get involved and help raise funds for the Club.

Can you run an event, do a sponsored activity, stage a bake sale or a jumble sale etc.?

We’ve made it easy for you to hold your event with our Official AFC R&D Fundraising Pack which contains:

  • AFC R&D sponsorship forms
  • Advertising posters (A3/A4)
  • Advertising flyers
  • Event tickets
  • Official event posters

Have an idea for an event you want to discuss with us? Please get in touch!
Please let us know your plans and we can help make your event a success by promoting via our website, newsletters and social media!

Email for your pack!


2. Crowdfunding


 What is crowdfunding? This is a secure and safe way to donate online and great way to support our fundraising campaign.

 You can pledge from just £5 and receive exclusive rewards!

You can view our page and get involved here:  AFCRD CROWDFUNDER


3. Commercial Fundraising

The publicity and anticipated increased attendance in our new home represents a big commercial opportunity for local businesses.

Do you work in sales or have the experience or confidence to approach local businesses for help during this important time for the Club?
Do you run a business that could provide sponsorship or assistance as AFC Rushden & Diamonds move to Hayden Road?

Please email for more information or to register your plans.


4. Direct Donations

If you would prefer you can also donate directly to the club via the home page of the Online Club Shop at or send your donations to

The Club would like to thank all of those who have helped us get to this stage, in many cases donating significant amounts of their time by volunteering to help with the work carried out so far, and would appreciate any further offers of help, as well as support for the campaign described above. We would also like to thank those individuals and businesses who have helped by providing the materials and tools we have used for the work so far. Please contact if you have any questions about this campaign or wish to offer your support in other ways.
