Back on 19th December we started the Lets Cover The Pitch Crowdfunding campaign and so far we’ve had a superb response from our supporters.
The bucket collections that took place during our New Years’ Day encounter with AFC Fylde are still to be added to the amount, but at the time of writing we have raised a superb £1,187 of the £2,000 target – we’re 59% of the way there!
We need to reach out target before the end of the campaign or we will not receive the funds - everything pledged will be automatically refunded at the close of the campaign if we don’t reach £2000.
We know this time of year can put a strain on the finance, but we are again asking supporters to dig as deep as they can afford to ensure we reach our target before the end of the campaign, which closes in 15 days’ time at 9am on January 16th.
The good news is that the covers have arrived at The Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium from Woking and now we just need to pay for them!
The success of this campaign will mean that vital funds are not diverted away from the manager’s budget, at a time when he needs them the most with the loss of both Jason Walker and Marcus Carver in quick succession.
Finally, regardless of the success of this campaign or not, we will need volunteers who can spare time to help move the covers into position and also remove them on match days. We are ideally looking for around half a dozen people to live close to the ground who can spare an hour to two at occasionally short notice. The more who can volunteer the better so was have cover (sorry for the pun) if people aren’t available. If you can help, please contact the club on 01257 230007.
