If there is anyone reading this post / thread who is willing to volunteer to hold a collection bucket themselves, for an hour or so before the match begins, then that would be great. We could all stand in different areas (inside or outside the ground).
You could then take your collection buckets (about 2.45pm) towards block 5 at the dem'port end (where the big entrance / exit is by the ambulance part) upon which I would be waiting to take these collections off you, to store safely during the first half of the match ... and taken to Ian during half time.
Just felt with todays news of what our poor staff have now had to do / go through ... and the anger and disgust this has generated between the fans ... that the Rochdale match would be 'the one' to get more donations given with this bit of news freshly etched on our minds.
If anyone would like to volunteer, then leave a message here to say so and something can be arranged between us about the buckets / where we would stand to collect etc.
Personally - I will have my bucket at the trust meeting (so may get some donations there) / I shall go along to the fanfest as Ian suggested, but I still intend to go around to the dem'port end to stand outside there for a while.
