North Berwick Amateur Football Club- DARED 2022
After launching our team sign up initiative for the first-time last year, we had our first official sport team involvement in DARED. A local football team, the North Berwick Amateurs, signed up to DARED 2022 with a team of 10 members. On top of those who took part, the rest of the team supported Circle by donating to participants, motivating them, and also hosted a charity football match during the month to maximise their fundraising efforts.
The team leader, and DARED Champion, Lewis, was instrumental in organising the team, and encouraging everyone to sign up to stay fit over the summer before the start of pre-season and keep the team spirit going, whilst supporting a local charity.
“Doing DARED really brought the team together and it was a great way to stay fit before the start of pre-season. Already looking forward to taking part again next year!”- Lewis Black
After introducing the incentive of getting team names on your t-shirts when you sign up via the Eventbrite in a team of 5 or more, each member got a personalised t-shirt with ‘Team NB Ammies’ written on the back, to make their team feel more official.
By the end of the challenge, the 10 members had run over 930 miles collectively, which is roughly the distance from their training grounds in North Berwick, to Berlin!
Team NB Ammies were one of our top fundraising teams of 2022, raising £1,810 in total for Circle’s children and families.
Not only was DARED a great way for the team to stay fit over summer, and continue their team spirit, but the impressive fundraising was a great way for NB Ammies to help give back to their local community.
Since taking part in DARED, the North Berwick Amateur Football Club have continued their support for Circle and recently hosted a charity ceilidh, raising over £500 for our children and families.
A huge thank you to NB Ammies for your contributions and amazing efforts for Circle!
