The latest statement for the Floodlight Fund now appears on the club web-site under breaking news. It shows the total of £51,354. 

Supporters will note that a figure of £2,000 has been donated from the Barrow Raiders 500 Super Lotto. 

This scheme was introduced to, firstly, raise the shortfall needed for the replacement floodlights which it is now doing, and secondly, to fund player development for subsequent seasons.

However, we need at least another 200 members to be able to do this irrespective of which division we will be playing in next season.

The jackpot currently stands at  £2,700! If you want to win it then you've got to be in it!

I will be in the souvenir shop from 2.15pm this Sunday if anybody requires application forms.

 

Finally, well done to everybody for raising this money. Against all odds, you have raised this money without any grants or lottery funding etc. No wonder Bobbie Goulding regards you as great supporters because you are!

Good Effort one and all. Did Holty actually put anything in from the payoff in the end John?

It was stated in the Evening Mail after Darren Holt was sacked that he had donated £4000.00 of his wages to the Floodlight Fund. It was left up to the BOD to put that money into the fund, which so far they haven't done. The £4000.00 should go to where Holty wanted it to go, so why have the BOD not done it?

At the end of the day, as long as the final statement says ££££ donated by Mr Holt what's the problem? Oh and that's the first I've ever seen any figures mentioned or have I missed something??

What you are trying to say Paul is that it matters not were the money went as long as the statement says its there ?  Political spin  :pickeat:

It is definitely fact. It was in the Evening Mail not long after he was sacked.

lol, I read it, said he will donate "some" of his payoff to the floodlight fund. I just wondered if it happened and how much.

The money would be part of his 2 year contract he signed up to and would not be paid to Darren until the following year  but seem as he was sacked he donated 50 percent of that year to the floodlight fund so money is in the clubs hands to donate to the fund.

How hard was it to understand?? When the target is reached and a final statement is released stating where all the money came from, then it should say x amount of pounds from Mr Holt. If not, then start asking questions. No spin whatsoever.

Too many 'fans' who just like to have a pop at the directors, he donated the money, it wasnt released how much it would be so afraid you could be mistaken 'concerned fan'.

How much do we actually need to raise ? I know the original figure was around £100k, but wasn't that revised to around £35k as we have been donated the floodlights from the Park Leisure Centre ?

£100 k included new lights, there was a saving of £35k from the used lights so £65k required. However the quote was from Agrilek and possibly savings since by going to another specialist contractor (certainly not a house hold electricians job for the lights or a general builders job for the base construction).

I am not mistaken Raiders94. If you would care to look through the Evening Mail archives you will see that on Wednesday 4th Sept 2013 there was an interview given by Darren Holt. It states in that article that he had donated a large amount of his wages, believed to be in the region of £4500.00 to the Floodlight Fund. I was wrong about the amount, I thought it was £4000.00. I knew I had read it in the Evening Mail, that's all I was saying.

The actual figure I donated was closer to £5700, and it was on the proviso that it was actually donated to the floodlight fund. If it hasn't been is isn't going to be then I could really do with it back!!!!!!!lol

 

Paul, not overly bothered by this as I understand times are tough, but if you donated £10 to a fund and susequently realised it never reached that fund then I'm quietly confident you would be singing a different tune............
