The contents of the jars have been counted. A total £106 will be presented to Paul Coventry during the week.
For those of you who are unaware of this fund raiser it is as follows.
Pick up a jar of jam or marmalade from me on a match day. Enjoy the contents of the jar . Wash the jar out and then start filling jar with your loose change.

I donate all the jars so every penny goes to the club.

Hi Ricardo,

 

Hope all is well.

 

Just in case people think a jar of change won't make much difference, could you please post your running total for monies raised by this method. It's amazing what can be achieved if we all muck in. The total you quoted when we last spoke was jaw dropping - I could have a guess but don't want to steal your thunder.

 

You, like the volunteers working on the ground, deserve a medal.

Thanks for that. A most are aware this scheme has been running for many years now and is a continual process. I first started doing for Frisa and now for the Ground Improvement fund. Over the years somewhere in the region of £10 000 has been raised.
Last year the scheme raised in excess of £1000. Not all jars are returned however which is a shame but that is life. All the jars are donated by myself so every penny goes to the club.
I will continue with scheme for as long as possible and it amazes me how generous Featherstone fans are.
I shall be at the steps to the terracing at all home matches. so pick up a jar, enjoy the contents and return the jars full of your loose change.

Every penny does count to this great club of ours and is really appreciated by the club.

If you want a jar other than jam or marmalade let me know and it will be sorted.

Thanks again for your help.
I dropped off The £106 yesterday at the club and picked up two more jars Theses were counted last night and contained nearly £20.
Its the old saying many hands make light work.

Many thanks to the super Featherstone fans who took jars last Sunday, threw money into buckets etc. All my jars of Jam and Marmalade were taken.
My sincere thanks go the gentleman who donated jars of Pickled Onions, Cabbage and Beetroot. These will be distributed at the next home game. I shall be at the bottom of the steps to the Cottage End terracing.
If you have a jar to hand in these may be taken to the club at any time during opening hours and I can collect them from there.

Come and have a natter with me prior to the match, take a jar and throw some money in my empty jar.

We have a fantastic club, brilliant fans and some talented volunteers. lets keep them all busy they still have a lot to do.

Thanks again

Ricardo

There is still a lot of work that requires to be carried out so lets keep the volunteers working.

 

All my jars are now labelled and I shall be at the bottom of the steps at the cottage end about 45 mins. prior to kick off.

Many thanks to those who dropped off jars on Friday night or collected jars. I have counted the contents and added the part bags. I hall be handing over  just over £100 to Paul  Coventry this week. If you have a jar t return drop it off at the club shop any time during opening hours.

I have several jars left these will be given out at the home match after the Sheffield game.

 

Thanks for your continued support

concerned at the club.

I have several jars of pickles etc. ready for the next home match.
