In light of the usual media blackout surrounding such matters, I'd like to bring to the attention of Chester fans some fundraising initiatives. The Fundraising Committee is acutely aware that money is tight at the moment, but if the Club is to prosper, cash needs to be raised. These two schemes have been launched, that we feel, will not ne too financially onerous for supporters.

Raffle
The Summer Raffle was launched on Tuesday and there are some fantastic prizes on offer, including a £500 cash first prize. Tickets are £1 each and we'd love fans to buy as many as possible. Even better would be if fans could take away a few books of tickets, to sell to friends, family and work colleagues. Volunteers will be on hand at tomorrow's game, but if anyone would like to help out distributing tickets in bars or at turnstiles please get down to the ground at 1.30 and report to the office or gazebo by the East Stand.

Small change initiative - Squad Builder / Pound A Goal
The Club has 500 small cardboard collection boxes that fans can take away to either fill with loose change or pound coins, if they choose the pound-a-goal option. The idea is to fill the boxes with coins as best we can, then return them in January for Youngie to use in the transfer window.
Now fans might question how, by collecting shrapnel in a little box, it can make a difference. But if each individual puts 10p away every day, that's around £18 over a 6 month period. Multiply that by 500 and you've got £9000 for the manager to use; a figure no manager in the Conference would turn his nose up at. Boxes can be picked up at the Office, before or after the game.

Thanks for reading this, and please get involved.

The draw is being made at the Forest Green match on 26 (?) August. We have asked that tickets be posted out to all CFU members but I'm not sure what's happening with that. I believe a large batch of tickets are being sent down south for the Exiles AGM, so if you're attending you could pick some up there.

To all Chester fans, these two fundraising ideas have the potential to raise a good sum of money for YOUR club. The summer raffle - lets raise more money than our neighbours did when they did an Xmas raffle. The majority of prizes are non football related so as well buying some tickets tomorrow please take a few books away with you to sell to friends, family and work colleagues.
We all always have loose change so take a box or two home and fill it up, money raised could really help Neil Young in January.
The forthcoming season is not going to be easy so as supporters of our great club lets do our best to help it financially.

As there will be fundraising people reviewing this topic, could someone please take a close look at SportsTraider.org. A charity based in Bedford/Luton who recycle sports kit and do a massive amount to make sport accessible to kids in the community. A simple, great model and they are doing well. It would be a fantastic thing for the club to do.
