After the Coronavirus pandemic suspended our season, we initially held back from reaching out across fund raising platforms to evaluate the extent and level too which Covid-19 would affect the Football Club. During this period we received a lot of messages from supporters and businesses who wanted to know how they could help us through this tough, uncertain time.
While we are working towards securing the financial stability of the club in these unprecedented times and are confident in doing so, we appreciate this generous sentiment of our fans and have therefore decided to make several packages and experiences available to 'pre-order'. As well as making some commercial enterprises available to forward fund.
The money raised will, of course, assist with our cash flow at a time when our income streams have vanished. Whilst all our contractual agreements, maintenance and utility bills are still ongoing. We are working towards ensuring that the Club in a stable situation when it is clear that we are able to ensure the health of our players, staff and supporters to continue operating at our facilities.
The project also has the backing of Chris Simpson the Chairman of the Stratford Town Independant Supporters Association. Chris says “Not only as Chairman of the STISA, but as a supporter of our club, I fully back the Crowdfunder concept and It’s a way of bringing all supporters together and helping our club, please support it”.
But we're all too aware that we're not the only organisation facing tough times and have therefore we have chosen to support the South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust to ensure 10% of all monies raised goes towards helping them continue to provide their services, which have never been more crucial.
