Fund Raising Committee Meeting This Wednesday

posted in: News | 0

The club are pleased to announce the launch of our new supporter lead fund raising committee.

It’s no secret that running a club at this level is a costly business and as such we need to look at every avenue possible to raise funds.

Alongside this, the club feels it is important to provide supporters with a wide range of activities to engage in outside of the football calendar.

As such a new fund raising committee has been formed to plan and host a series of events through out the year, including speaker evenings, quiz’s, sportsman’s evenings, raffle’s and a wide range of other activities.

Historically we have had fantastic support for events at the club which have raised much needed funds, and as such we would like to invite supporters to join our new fund raising committee.

The committee will be overseen by Associate General Manager, Carl Marsden, but will be headed up on a day to day basis by Avenue stalwart, Dave Stordy.

Many supporters will already know Dave and the fantastic work and fund raising he has carried out at the club over the years, and the club would like to take this opportunity to thank Dave for all his hard work and dedication.

We would like to invite any supporters who would like to join on the committee to an initial meeting in the social club on Wednesday the 9th of October at 7.30pm.

If you would like to be considered but cannot attend, please send an email to Dave Stordy (

If you have any suggestions on activities the committee can carry out, then please email Dave.

Speaking about the formation of the committee, Dave said:
“It is really important that we support the club financially given what has happened recently and the new plans for Horsfall in the future, so we look forward to seeing or hearing from you.”
