Week 8 Update: The final whistle has blown!

1594230716_keep_the_crows_flying!_(63).png

Well, we did it! 

The final whistle blew on our 'Keep The Crows Flying' crowdfunding campaign today. After 8 weeks of donations, pledges, purchases and auction bidding the total raised stands at an astonishing £25,345. Donations were still coming in just minutes before the campaign closed!

The amount that you have helped us raise is way beyond our expectations and everyone at the Club is truly touched by the generosity and goodwill shown by our fans, the Royston community and the wider football family! When we started we set ourselves an ambitious target of £20,000, never really thinking that we would exceed it so comfortably but thanks to your generous donations we have managed it and then some! 

Upon the completion of the crowdfunding campaign Club chairman Steve Jackson said 

"Like many other non-league Clubs, the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lock-down hit us hard.  The loss of 5 home games, possible playoff games, the cancellation of numerous clubhouse events and, by no means least, the cancellation of our annual Beer & Music Festival, meant that the club lost out on vital revenue. We were determined to not let what we have achieved both on and off the pitch in recent years be undermined by this totally unforeseen circumstance. Immediately the board put in place measures to help support the club but the level of support demonstrated by the Crows faithful, the Towns community and also the wider football family has further reinforced the connection between the Club and the community. This town needs and deserves a football club playing at the highest possible level and it is our intention to continue to strive to push the club forward, on and off the pitch.”

“I have been truly touched by the level of support the Club has received. I know that many who have donated will have been struggling themselves during these uncertain times and yet they have found a way to help support the Club - THEIR club. I'd like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the whole Club, to thank everyone who has donated to this campaign. We very much look forward to welcoming you all back to Garden Walk as soon as is safe to cheer on OUR Crows!"

Rest assured, as a Board we will not rest on our laurels and we continue to explore further funding or grant opportunities to ensure that the club continues to improve both on and off the pitch. We look forward to, hopefully, thanking you all in person when we are able to return to Garden Walk for the 2020/21 season. Until then we can only say:

Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!

and of course, COME ON YOU CROWS!
