Just signed up to the easy fundraising site for FEV, 43 people now on and just short of 50 quid :smile: , also sent emails to about 6 friends and family about it too.

On another note about fundraising and i know its not much but could increase our attendances (in time), i also know the club reps/players (all included) do a lot of work off the field,- would it be possible to get someone to attend local rugby league matches in the area as guests to pick a man of the match and present them with 2 match day passes for FEV'S next home game?
The winners wouldn't have been there anyway and you never know, some of them might get the ROVERS bug????

That's kind of how I rediscovered my love of the Rovers (and Rugby League), I'd been absent since 96, but a couple of the players visited my kid's school and were handing out free tickets. My lad came home excited and we went to the Barrow home game. I've been to every home and a few away games since and have definately got the bug again, so much so that I've bought a season ticket for next year.

For me it doesn't seem like I've done much at all but still managed to raise over £3! It's surprising how quickly u can rack it up

Still only 47 users but heading towards the £60 barrier. Did anyone see info sheets on their Grand Final bus? I put them on every seat of the Bradley Arms bus. Need to get some up in the bars around Fev, especially in the club house.

If you haven't yet signed up to www.easyfundraising.org.uk, i think you should, so when you are buying products online, go through there, click the retailer and the club will receive a percentange of that! It soon adds up.

Also as part of that, they have a search function, which every time you do a search it generates 1p > http://featherstoner...ysearch.org.uk/

For me, i'm doing online searches all the time and I imagine a lot of you on here will use google? Why not use that and make the club some money along the way?

I've already handed over £30 last month.


Using it now Chris from the old bed. Do quite a bit of searching.
Incidentally when I was more active I started a scheme for kids in laserball. (like paintball but not chance of injury). I looked well into it. The ground could be used without affecting the pitch as instead of trees you use blow ups. Castles, walls, defences etc. Various games could be played , such as one team attacking the castle. I got as far as the man coming down when the Rovers organisor resigned. Things have changed but I reckon now the best bet would be to buy one's own equipment. Two benefits: It would attract the kids and it is a money raiser. Potential new members and Mums involved. Might be one to pass by Paul. Thought I'd just put my twopennorth in. Steady progress on the heart attack, but still confined to barracks. See you. Keep the handshake firm Col.

I got £4 for posting 10 stadium seats off to Southampton today through the scheme with parcels2go.com. It wasnt in their searches but popped up when I Googled DHL door to door parcels. So a win win, making money selling the seats and then more money with the postage. We are now heading towards the £80 mark with 49 users. If only we Could double the users then we would start making serious money for the club.

Just tried the buying stuff on-line part of easy fundraising, bought some show tickets from SeatWave via easy fundraising and generated £3.15 for the Rovers!

I hope no one minds, but I've taken the liberty of posting a link to the sign up page on Fev's facebook group

It would be great if the easyfundraising information Could be added on the Fev Rovers weekly newsletter email. Asked for this before but nothing yet.

We need to get it done before everyone does their Christmas shopping.

The advert at the top or the forum for parcel2 go is one of the companies that donate so ensure you go through the easyfundraising site. They pick up your parcel for you and then deliver it. I found them £20 cheaper than royal mail/parcelforce and they donated £4 also.
