Re the ongoing situation. This is an important fundraiser for the club raising around £1500 a month and offering some excellent cash prizes. Through a lot of hard work by a handful of Reds fans we currently have the largest membership in this Draws twenty year history. With this in mind we intend to keep things going as best we can so we dont undo all the good work and to keep providing the club with a valuable income stream. We are able to have the March and April draws as normal with a lot of the money already in The majority of the members are on door to door collection though which we reluctantly have to stop for the time being. We will keep members informed regards the May and future draws but the hope is we can get back to normal at some point and pick things up where we might leave off. Anyone who normally pays cash to Derek or other collectors can change to standing order or pay by paypal ( details on the official website in supporters club section). Thanks to all who get tickets in this draw and big thank you to Derek and Earthspan for all the collecting etc

This is a very important for the club, but i dont think its a good idea making unnecessary visits to the bank and ceritainly not to go to Dereks house. I see on the main website you can donate money to the club via Paypal and bank transfer. The paypal payments go to the supporters club, not sure about the bank transfer. Could people use this facility to pay for the monthly draw tickes, as long as they mark on the payment what it is for. I know everyone cant pay this way, but it would help some people.
I would be beneficial if all members of the Monthly Draw if they can, move over to some form of electronic bank transfer. This saves work for the collectors and reliably gets you in the draw every month.
If anyone wants to set up a Standing Order/Bank Transfer with their bank, either send me a message through this forum, click on my name in message and use the send message option in the profile or email me at [email protected] for confirmation of the details required.
