Hi everyone just a quick update. First thank you all for supporting me, a quick mention for Josh Butler who left me a jar which I retrieved from the club office last week. The jar was a apple sauce jar containing lots of lovely coins when i emptied them there was still enough apple sauce on them and in the jar to supplement our Sunday roast. (Good to have single blokes on my list)
Been to the bank today and can report the running total stands at a wonderful 2.433 pounds and 70 pence again thank you to all who donate remember this money will only be used to provide something in the new stadium specifically for the benefit of the fans, and it will be you who decide what that project will be.

I take no blame at all for the lack of house training, it certainly wasn't for the lack of trying!!!!!!

Mel I couldn't get to game on Sat due to having to cover for somebody at work. Great 3 pts back on track. Ok I have counted jar & will post it 2 U pronto @ York St. YABA.

A few nice coins thrown in my bucket yesterday and the usual weekly donation from my favorite lady. Special mention for "brummie in exile" making his annual pilgrimage, glad he picked a great performance for his visit but best of all he dropped me a jar of coins (didn't realise how many 5p coins you could get in a marmalade jar) thank you and thanks to all who support this effort.  UTP

Banking a further 61 pounds today bringing the running total to 2,494 pounds seventy pence. A nice contribution from my exiled mate in Scotland. And perhaps the most emotional donation I have ever received from one of our greatest supporters, three jars and a donation in a very moving letter made in memory of his son, so grateful and so moved thank you it helps make the effort worthwhile, Thanks also to all the other contributors rest assured you will choose how this money will be spent.    UTP.

Another quick update. Just counted the jam jar contributions and can very happily report that the running total now stands at 2,515 - 66p. A big thank you to all the fans who continue to support me by filling their jam jars with loose change and dropping it in to me before home games. Never forget this money will only be used for the benefit of the fans in the new stadium and how it will be spent will be suggested and decided by those fans who contribute. Again thank you for your loyal support it makes it all worth while.  UTP.

Quick update. Just been to bank and the fund now stands at a wonderful 2,869 pounds & 66p . Please keep dropping you coins in a jam jar and hopefully I will be reporting that we have passed the magical 3000 pounds mark. We will certainly be in a position to use this money for something special for the fans in the new stadium. Please remember it will be you the fans who have helped raise this money who will suggest and decide what that will be.  UTP

Time to up the effort now Scouse has made the kind offer, 50k x 2 would make a lovely pot of money.
I don't think Scouse will keep to his word though, many seldom do.
If you have never loved or been loved,than you have never truly lived.

Surely you are not questioning the integrity of such a loyal supporter? If he did not keep his word is reputation would be in tatters ......oh hang on minute........... ;D

With my offer of donating £1000 from the Boston Gateshead double, I have a more realistic chance of giving Mel the money. All we have to do is both us and Gateshead win all remaining games, results go our way and a few points deducted here and there. Simples ;) ;)
I plan to live forever. ........................so far so good

It is the excitement and anticipation of your offer that drives me on Mick.
