Operation promotion merchandise
Virtually everything that needs posting out has now been done leaving an oddment which are just awaiting a top up order due this week of OWTT T- shirts.
In terms of local deliveries these are now all packed and the vast majority delivered or out for delivery but we could do with a couple of volunteers to deliver in DN32 9 area and also DN31.
These are expected anytime now. The last communication we had is that they were in Felixstowe awaiting clearance. When they do arrive we will send out a communication and also get it covered in the local press. It will help us enormously if as many people as possible collect from the ground. To this end we will be opening for collections during evenings and weekends so that people at work during the day can collect.
The sheer scale of the new memberships has been overwhelming and in truth we have struggled to cope.This week we have taken on some short term administration help to get us back up to date and we anticipate that all outstanding certificates will be sent out this week. Thank you for your patience and understanding with this.
OP Events – We aim to have clarity on the outstanding OP events by early next week. Apologies for the delay with some of these.
We have a number of events coming up that we are either organising or supporting.
An evening with Dean Windass – This event is at the Beachcomber on Saturday October 17th and the organisers have kindly donated 20 VIP tickets for us to sell. Further details here :
Comedy Night with Lloyd Griffith and friends – Lloyd is kindly putting on this show for Operation Promotion. It takes place on Thursday 29th October 2015 starting at 7.30pm in McMenemy’s and tickets are £15 each. We are expecting a sell out with over 100 sold already so please book quickly to avoid disappointment. If you bought via crowd funder your name will be on a list at the door on the night.

F A Draw tickets – We are once again doing our popular FA Cup draw tickets and these are already on sale around the bars and in many pubs and clubs locally thanks to our fantastic volunteers Steve Davey and Alan Leary.

Tickets are £1 each and can be bought in any multiple here www.marinerstrust.co.uk/cat/draw/ . Carole Precious won £500 last season, why not you this season? Please support if you can.
. We will shortly be announcing the date of the AGM and we do have some places on the board for anyone looking to get more involved and has the time to help. Also we would love to hear from anyone who can help us on an ad hoc basis as time allows.
As ever lots going on. Thanks for all your support and for your patience and understanding over the last couple of months whilst we have been dealing with the mammoth logistics of Operation Promotion.
