Mohamed Al Fayed donates £10,000 to fund Fulham DFC’s GB Stars

by / Wednesday, 06 May 2009 / Published in FDFC News

Mohamed Al Fayed, The Fulham Football Club Chairman has generously
dipped into his pockets to donate £10,000 to the GB Squad members in
the Fulham Deaf Football Squad!

The donation completes all
the individual fundraising targets for all twelve Fulham DFC players
representing Great Britain in the Deaflympics.

The Great Britain
Deaf Football Team are self-funded and rely on donations and
sponsorship following the withdrawal of sport funding last year.   All
Great Britain deaf athletes do not receive any support from the UK
government for the Deaflympics as all funds have been diverted to the
2012 Olympics.

Each team member has to raise £3,000 each to
cover their costs of competing for GB at the Deaflympics.  All twelve
Fulham Deaf players have been fundraising tirelessly since last
September, and Mohamed’s donation has ensured they all reach their
fundraising targets, so they can all represent Great Britain and Fulham
FC in the Deaflympics!

All the members of Fulham Deaf who have benefited from the donation are  extremely grateful to Mohamed Al
Fayed for recognising the cause and for supporting his Fulham Deaf FC
squad members in the GB Squad.
