Thanks very much to everyone who has donated to the Disabled Supporters Travel appeal. So far we have raised a magnificent £630 and with the donation from Les Brechin’s competition still to come then we are well on the way to covering the cost of one trip, but we still we more. The cost of the coach for the Wembley trip is £1200 and with the potential of another trip the week before you can see it is very expensive. The annual cost of operating the club is at least £10k depending on the number of trips.
As well as being able to donate directly there are a number of other ways you can contribute. As already communicated if you take part in Les Brechin’s latest Fishy competition 25% of the entry fees will go to this cause. You can enter here : http://www.marinerstrust.co.uk/fishy-competition/
Also there are a number of pubs that are doing some fundraising for this over the Easter period and so if you frequent any of them be sure to take part in whatever they are doing. Special thanks to : Grosvenor, Bradley, Wheatsheaf, Jubilee and Cricketers.
If you would like to send a cheque just send it to us at 9 Rymer Place, Cleethorpes, N E Lincs, DN35 0EW (payable to Grimsby Town Supporters).
Finally we will be doing a bucket collection at the Eastleigh game and so if you haven’t contributed by then please give generously.
