Myself & Shaun have been asked by the BOD to look into setting up more fund raising for the club if any one has any ideas I would love to hear them. I'm hoping to speak to Chris Drake about his lotto bingo that he ran when WISC was on the go to see if we can get that up and running. Also I'm thinking about setting up a small fund raising committee to help get ideas together if any would like to help also let me know.

i think we should be pushing the easyfundraising site especially now we are in the run up to Christmas.use this site to shop online with amazon/argos etc and the support group gets paid a percentage of the total cost of the purchase although it cost's you no more for whatever you have bought.

I'm speaking to Chris about that as well if you know the web site can you put it on here for everyone to use as it's still bringing money in

Lots of supporters cant afford to sponser a player etc.  Make some affordable alternatives .  I part funded two sri lankan cricketers by folk  sponsering their shirt , whites , bat , gloves etc .  You could have the main player sponser , then sponsers for shirt , shorts , socks and boots , at affordable prices . One page in the programme listing the sponsers

Can companies have their logos on the corner flags etc ???

Local leisure centre -  link up and offer cheap /  free match ticket with all memberships

Local clubs - make each home game an opportunity for 1 club to showcase what they offer . Give all members reduced admission or a free pint or two .

there is a page in the match programme with player sponsors, were looking at getting some drinks promotions etc some incentives at getting fans and players to come in the bar not miners and stay there longer plus put other offers on.

The easy fundraising site that was originally set up by Chris Drake has been run by Trust in Haven since 2010 and has raised money for the club in that time

The Club Has engaged Luke Johnston to set up a merchandise shop, a general shop, club diary, club directory and hopefully a loyalty card system and to also refresh the clubs website with more photographs. to help all the engaging along we will also be setting up a large group website so as much information as possible can be past on to as many fans as possible at the same time.

P.S. Remember the best way to support the club is to join the |Pride of 5 weekly draw or to become a member of the blue club monthly draw.

I like it when we look for fund raising ideas........and am willing to support.........but always have to smile when people come up with suggestions which have things like free / reduced admission and of course free pints attached to them.

Give with one hand and take back with the other springs to mind........
