Ground Improvements

Recommended Posts

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

Together with the part bags some £67 will be handed over later in the week to the Stand Gang. So far this year alone some £585 will have been handed over for ground improvements.

There are just 6 jars remaining for this year, which may be collected at the next home match on the 5th of July.

 

The club really appreciates the efforts of all fans to help keep the project going.

I am looking forward to the match on Sunday for the return of Whitehaven.

I shall be at my usual position (The steps to the terracing at the cottage end) about 30 mins prior to kick off. Whilst that stands look complete there is still a lot of expensive work needed to complete the project. All jars and donations will be very gratefully received.

 

I cannot thank you all enough for your generous support.

 

The scheme will continue over the next few years to help with continuing ground improvements for future generations.

 

See you all Sunday. Up the Rovers and here's to a  big victory on Sunday

Thanks for your support at the game with donations and jars a further £154 has been given to team Covo at lunchtime. I was also informed by the office staff that a jar had been handed in. This has also been counted and a further £96 added to the fund. so this week £250 has been added to the funds. This means an incredible  £1049 has been raised so far this year from the jars.

 

Many thanks again for all your truly amazing support

I shall be at the bottom of the steps to the cottage end terracing on Sunday afternoon at about 2.30 pm.

 

Don't forget to have a go at guessing the contents of the large jar in the club shop.

Last Sunday I dropped of £18 for the ground improvements and a further £60  today from the 5 jars that were handed in at the weekend. This takes the total to £1117 so far and the Demi John is to add to the total. This all makes a brilliant contribution to the ground improvements.

 

My sincere thanks to you all.

Many thanks to the people that dropped off jars last week end. These have now been counted and a further £40 has been given to the stand fund. I will be continuing with my jars for the next few years as ground work is an on going process and monies will still be required. So keep saving your change for jars next season

If you have a jar to return yet drop it off at the club shop and I will collect them. For those going into Pontefract  tomorrow drop them off at the stall and I will pick them up in the afternoon when I shall be helping out.

 

Thanks for your amazing support
