Gôl! – The Wales Football Supporters Charitable Organisation
The Gôl! Appeal is the Wales Football Supporters Charity. We are wholly reliant on fund-raising by the fans and aim to help under-privileged children wherever Wales play.
Gôl! started in Baku, Azerbiajan where we visited a number of children’s homes with gifts of footballs, football kits, toys and cash donations. Since then visits to children’s homes have become a regular feature of Welsh fans’ away trips. We also help children’s causes in Wales.
In conjunction with the Football Association of Wales, Gôl! has donated tickets for home games to several charities, including Ty Hafan, Latch and Bobath.
1. To help young people in countries connected to Welsh Football through the provision of financial support and activities which develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to participate in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals.
2. To provide financial assistance, support and recreation to assist in the treatment and care of young people suffering from mental or physical illness of any description or in need of rehabilitation as a result of such illness in countries connected to Welsh Football.
3. To provide relief of financial hardship among young people in countries connected to Welsh football by providing such people with goods or services which they could not otherwise afford through lack of means.
4. To provide relief of financial need and suffering among young people, victims of natural or other kind of disasters in the form of money or other means deemed suitable.
Gôl! is registered as a charitable organisation with HMRC number XT14176.
