Protest Fund Update October 2016 - Donations top £40,000!

When @Curb_It and I started this protest fund we had in mind a target of around £5,000 - but didn't say so because it was felt to be a little over-ambitious and we would look a bit silly if it flopped. How wrong we were!

Income

As of this morning, the total amount donated or raised through various channels is £41,107.

This includes the fantastic sums of £5,500 from the sale of the protest shirts, £600 (so far) from the sale of the enamel badges, £1,000 programme sponsorship from Axis and £350 from the summer fund-raising gig . We are so grateful to everyone who contributed to these initiatives.

We are also humbled by and extremely grateful for the many individuals who continue to make regular monthly payments and those who make very generous one-off or occasional contributions.

Expenditure

Expenditure to date is £31,209.

Well, 3,000 little pink pigs don't come cheap you know! Apart from the spend on these, there has been significant expenditure on spoof programmes, placards, posters, helium for the giant inflatable and a host of other things.

Of course, we also have some interesting further protests planned, for which we have committed expenditure included in this total. As always, we keep these under wraps as much as possible, so as to maximise impact on the club and the media.

Balance on hand

The conventional fund raising wisdom is that you don't ever say how much you've already got, just what you need.

We prefer to be totally open and transparent - after all, it's YOUR money that we are talking about here.

So, the uncommitted balance on hand is currently a healthy £9,898.

Sounds great, but that's just about 3 times what we spent on the Coventry shenanigans. So please do keep the contributions rolling in. We promise you that every £1 is appreciated and will be spent carefully and wisely in support of the protests until we rid our great club of the Duchatelet and Meire regime.

  • Well done all
  • Fantastic effort one and all
  • What I want to know is, when Roland sells, on which brand of champagne will you be spending the remaining balance?

    It's going to be some party, and everyone involved in this will be there!
  • Timely reminder, I will be contributing again later today. Dig deep people, we need more and bigger protests....
  • Great work, keep it up.

    By the way even KM knows pigs don't go cheep.

  • Actually, when you win £50 on VG, what does it mean? Cash, or some bloody vouchers to spend in the shop? And if its cash, how do they pay it?

    If they have your bank details - they pay it directly into your bank account. If not, an old fashioned cheque in the post. The daily draw is for £10 vouchers. Hope this hasn't changed because , if so, and the chap who won £5000 in the first match of the season got his in vouchers he won't have been very happy

  • Superb work guys!
  • Well done all. Fantastic effort!
