£750,000 is the target!

November 28, 2007

[image1]One year to go – £750,000 is the target!

We hope to take the amount handed over to the football club past the £700,000 mark during the last year of the existing share scheme. Everyone can help us achieve this magnificent figure and just because the scheme ends next November it does not mean it is too late to join now.

To date we have handed over in excess of £625,000 to the football club and the Supporters Club now holds circa 9.4% of the issued share capital as well as having the influence of two full directors in the board room. These are great achievements but we would still like to do more. Can you help by joining or by introducing someone else to join the share scheme for its last year? Perhaps your company would like to join the corporate membership which with tax concessions is less than the platinum scheme?

The Supporters Club will receive 1 share for every £2.75 contributed.  Whilst the scheme was designed for a 3 year membership this is not essential and anyone can join for the last year or a part of it. Remember everyone who has contributed will have their name on plaque listing everyone who has supported the appeal. So if you want your name in the new stadium it is not too late. If you simply are interested in the team then don’t forget that one of the most important elements of the Supporters Club share scheme has been our financial contributions towards strengthening the team. Danny Coles has become the latest player brought to Rovers with the help of the share scheme.
