Generous Rovers Fans

23rd Jan 2013

On Saturday 19th January we battled the snow, ice and arctic conditions around Ewood Park and held our football collection! Surprisingly, we managed to raise £141.02 ! This was helped by a £20 note and a £10 note that had been put into the buckets. Considering it was such a bitterly cold day and everybody had gloves on – that wasn’t a bad total at all and beats our previous record of £114 from Blackburn Rovers in January 2011!

One young girl even came along and gave us a poster that she had made for us! But it was so cold, she ran off before we had the chance to ask her name! But thank you very much for your fantastic painting anyway, here it is for everybody to see!

Thank you very much indeed to all of our collectors Linda, Debs, Lee, Georgie, Barbara, Jeanette, Ken and Steve for helping out, especially in such cold conditions! Big thanks to all those kind Rovers fans who took their gloves off and donated their loose change to the centre. We are hopeful to get a sunnier and warmer day next time the opportunity arises!
