On Sunday May 5th, Buckingham Football Club will once again be holding a family day to celebrate the life of Ron Ackerman.

This event has been moved to Sunday May 5th due to the current poor weather. The raffle will now be held on that day.

Ron worked tirelessly for many years in grassroots football making friends throughout the region. For well over 50 years Ron dedicated his time helping to build a football club for the town of Buckingham. During that time Ron covered every position you can think of within the club, Committee, Secretary, Treasurer, Groundsman, Chairman and even played in goal. By holding this annual event it brings together the Buckingham FC family not only for Ron but for all the dedicated volunteers that have helped make the club what it is today.

We want to make this a great family day so please come along and spend your Easter Sunday with us and raise a glass for Ron - full details of the day will be posted soon but we hope there will be something for the whole family.

We are planning a vets game where players from the past and present will entertain you. Along with that we hope there will be a bouncy castle and other stalls and finishing off with our traditional Easter Egg hunt in the afternoon.

On the day we will be running our Easter Sunday raffle with some top prizes with all the proceeds going towards new furniture for our community clubhouse.

Tickets for the raffle can be bought prior to the day from the clubhouse bar and online for those who prefer to purchase that way. Tickets will also be available for sale on the day.

If you buy tickets online we will mail you your ticket numbers. We will also put those tickets in an envelope and leave it at the bar if you want to pick them up.

If you do buy online then you will need to create an account when you are presented with the screen asking you to log in. Please do not try to log in using Facebook as this will not allow you to purchase any tickets.

Raffle tickets can be bought online here
