Ilkeston barrels swelled by PFTG donation

Ilkeston barrels swelled by PFTG donation

Another Saturday and another top day for the football club, on and off the pitch. The Pound for the Ground team sold 865 tickets around the ground and the winner was board member Adam Brown with ticket number 851. "It’s the first time that I have won anything at FC," said a gob-smacked Adam, and he promptly donated the whole £200 into the nearest barrel and back to the Development Fund. As usual, the remaining £645 will be banked into the DF account.

We must also mention the previous night’s sterling efforts by the Eccles branch at their sell-out quiz night. The quiz was once again won by the ‘Old Traffordables’ (Phil Bradbury, Paul Hinson, Gary Rochford and Jon Kelly) by a margin of 10 points beating 25 other teams. As this is there third time on the bounce, how’s about retiring the team guys and giving another team a chance!!. The evening raised around £850 for the DF and also a collection bucket had £25 in and has been given to the barrels. A top night was had by all.

So, on Saturday the barrels had a flying start - £200 from the PFTG winner, £25 from the Eccles branch, £135 of 50ps and 20ps from a regular donator and the usual stack of mixed change. A grand total of £539 for the DF.

Finally, thanks again to the buckateers, who were outside the Marine ground last week after the game and another £88 was collected.
Thanks to everyone who contributed and helped with all the above. On top of the world doesn’t begin to describe it!!
See you all at Staleyvegas this coming Sunday for another helping of punk football.
