Despite the FA Cup game against Witton Albion being all pay on the gate, 1,230 Pound for the Ground tickets were bought by supporters and after deducting the £250 prize money £980 swelled the coffers of the Development Fund.
The winning ticket numbers were as follows: -
7074 1st prize £200 (claimed)
10152 2nd prize £50 (claimed)
8908 3rd prize Fudge Hamper
10157 4th prize Breakfast for two
The barrel collection was added to by £51 collected at the Altrincham Youth game, £42 for swapping US dollars at Raymond’s usual very generous rate of exchange, a clutch of £20 notes in the function room barrel and all the usual donations of change bags and notes and coins. The final total was a season’s best of £462.
When you add the barrels total to the Pound for the Ground proceeds we get a grand total of £1,442 raised from the Witton Albion game. The running total for the Development Fund at home games so far this season now stands at £8,277.
A mighty thanks to everyone who contributed last Saturday and look out for the three extra barrels that will be around Broadhurst Park this Friday evening at the Worcester City game.
