As the season is drawing to a close, very sadly, we need to remain focused on Fund Raising during the close season. The collection of Foreign coins and notes and old English money will continue.
Jars are already available at the following locations Leeds City College Technology Campus opposite the Merrion Centre, White Rose Optical Wakefield City Centre and the Last Orders Featherstone. There is also the opportunity at South Elmsall at South Elmsall Travel.
There is a jar hopefully being placed at Crofton High School.
To help maximise this brilliant idea and opportunity I have several large sweet jars available. Outlets are required. If you could take responsibility to look after a jar please contact me so arrangements can be made to let you have one. The more jars are out there the greater is the opportunity to raise funds from the public who do not attend matches.
Lets show the hard working volunteers that we really care about Featherstone Rovers.

I pledged £10 on Facebook to the stand fund when I did my ice bucket challenge, but I'm not sure who to give it to. Is it ok to give it to you on sunday at the game and will you ensure it goes into the fund.
Thank you, Darren

There will be an amnesty on jars this weekend end so bring your jars back and drop off in the club shop whether it is inside or outside. I will not be collecting jars this week end end at the match as i have been asked to carry out other duties.
The scheme will be run again next season so start savingyour loose change.
Thanks for your support this year as usual its brilliant.

Good luck to all the team this afternoon.
As it is the last home match of the season please return your jars, even if only part full and drop off at the outside club shop. The scheme will continue next season so put your loose change to one side.
For those wanting to make a donation a large sweet jar will be on the stand for any contribution of English or foreign coins.
Thanks again for all your amazing support, it is greatly appreciated.
