Maidenhead To Mark Big Birthday In The Best Way Possible

Maidenhead United are wanting to mark their 150th anniversary by raising £150,000 for 15 local charities.

The National League club are aiming to celebrate in style and support their community in the process.

The historic Magpies were formed in October 1870 with their first ever match played in December of that year.

Now those at York Road - the oldest senior football ground continuously used by the same club - want to do something everyone in the area can benefit from.

The club’s statement read: “As a community focused club, our priority during the COVI19 pandemic has been to support the local community.

“Our Magpies Community Helpline has been a great success but has made us become increasingly aware of the difficulties which local charities are experiencing.

“The club has decided to set ourselves the target of raising £150,000 to be shared between 15 local charities during our anniversary year.

“Each of the beneficiary charities provide vital services and activities for people living in Maidenhead, Windsor and the surrounding areas.

“The Magpies 150 Challenge is a call to action to those who want to provide vital fundraising support for local charitable organisations. Anyone can take the Magpies 150 Challenge, whatever your age or abilities.”

The club have set up a new page online. Click here to visit the Magpies150 Challenge website.
