Did you buy a Protest Shirt this season?

Then if so, give yourself a massive pat on the back for more ways than one.

By selling so many shirts, we managed as part of the project to generate some decent sums in order to help (alongside the Protest Fund) a couple of excellent local charities.

One of those was the Charlton Park Riding School for the Disabled, who benefited from a £3,500 donation.

On Saturday, a few of us had the pleasure of attending a meet and greet to see how that money had been put to use. A whole new forecourt area had been laid. Previously, the area had ankle-deep holes that were dangerous, especially for kids with mobility issues, and filled up when it rained. They are immensely pleased with the paving that is safer and more pleasing to the eye. It looked fantastic.

A few pics below, with @TEL (who drove the project) and @AddicksAddict with John Furlonger from the Charlton Park RDA

Once again, thanks again to everyone whose purchases made these donations possible, and a special thanks to @TEL and the dozen or so posters on here who formed the 'Covered End Choir' and who successfully managed to bring this idea to fruition.

    Contact charltonnick - if there are any left, he'll have them.
  • I'm going to wear my black and white shirt over my Roland Out hoodie over my CARD hoodie if it's cold.

    I'll put my charlton waterproof on underneath if it's raining.

  • Buying the shirt was the easy bit so a massive thank you to all involved in the project and so good to see the positive results for the riding school.

    Looking forward to wearing my shirt on Sunday, sat in the east opposite KM, home made banner aloft!
  • Great to see the spin off from all the effort put in by so many.

    well done to those organizers.
  • Do you think there'll be any appetite for an 'away' version of the shirt. It could be White n Black ...

    With all that on you had better buy the seat next to you. Hope the west lower is not already sold out.
  • I don't always agree with everything done and said by CARD, but things like this show a level of class amongst its organizing committee that the current owners of our club can only dream of.

    Good work.
  • Top effort Tel and all who put their time into this.
  • We do still have a very limited number of protest shirts left , Mens XL & XS and a couple of Ladies sizes , visit covererdendchoir.co.uk to order. We also have Roland out hoodies in all sizes.
