Bank Transfer – You can pay directly into our bank. Grimsby Town Supporters Sort code 08-92-99 Account 65101258. Just drop us an e-mail to tell us you have paid this way.
Standing Order- This is our preferred method as it reduces administration for renewals. You can download a form here or contact us and we will send you one : http://www.marinerstrust.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/standingorderform.pdf
Online – You can join online safely and securely here: http://www.marinerstrust.co.uk/cat/membership//

It goes without saying that we really value your support and hopefully you will have seen in the last year the difference we can make together.
Help– Whether it is to be part of the Trust board or just to be a willing helper we are always in need of people who can spare some time to help us grow and improve. In particular we need help in a couple of key areas. First of all we need some people to help with membership administration which as we have grown has become a major task. As well as deal with the ongoing updates we have a huge short term project were we are going to issue membership cards to our members. If this is the sort of work that fits your skill set and you are willing to spare some time every week then please get in touch. Secondly we are looking for someone who can spare some time to review and implement a new accounting system. As we have grown our existing system is not really fit for purpose and needs updating. Our treasurer Ian Townsend does a fantastic job and is comfortable with ongoing recording but needs help with this particular project. Again if you have the necessary skills and have some time for this please get in touch.
If you would like to get involved in any other way just e-mail us at email@example.com
As ever thank you for your fantastic support
