RangersMedia Erskine Fund – End of Season Fundraiser: Well folks, here we are again. What a Season it has been and the best is yet to come. Even with the pandemic, we have achieved great things for those who are special to us. Your donations have helped us support Erskine Veterans, Combat Stress, Rangers Football Club, Rangers Youth Development Company and of course not forgetting Broxi and BRAVEHOUND. We have some special times ahead for our Club and I am sure our veterans will be Ready to get back to Ibrox. Fortunately, the weather can be a bit kinder for the early games and at the start of the Season so, those veterans who might be a bit more frail can still have an occasional trip out to see their and our Team. Of course attendance also sets us back a load of cash. We have covered some of our costs with our Membership Fundraisers and BonusBall Raffles. Thanks again to those who donated prizes or bought numbers in the BonusBall, week after week and won nothing! We genuinely cannot thank you enough for your generosity. Existing Fund Members: You have already made your donation but should any of you wish to make a top-up donation - Any amount, large or small, is most welcome! Non Fund Members: This is your last chance to join the RangersMedia Erskine Fund in our most important Season ever - Membership for the remainder of the Season is £10 (or more, if you like!!). So there you have it, Bears – If we are to continue doing what we do, then we are going to need a top-up. Traditionally, we don’t ask for a massive donation at the end of any season and particularly this one because we appreciate that you have already worked your socks off donating all season long, and because the New season will be upon us all too soon. So if you can spare some cash, that’s grand. If you’re not doing so well and would struggle - Sorry to hear times are tough. Every penny or pound makes a difference to the Fund and it’s all the same in the Hall of Fame. Donations as always are via PayPal or Bank Transfer. If you already have the details then fire away but please remember to put your RM username in as a reference for @govanblue somewhere and if you’re using PayPal please, please remember to select the “send money to friends or family” option, so that we can avoid the PayPal fees. If you don’t know our PayPal address or Bank details, or need help figuring out how to do it then add a post here, or send me a PM, @Zetland. I am always glad to help. The End of Season Hall of Fame will be shown below. Final Note: Updates may take a little longer than usual so, please don't worry if you do not get added to the Pledged List or Transferred to the Donated List immediately. When you appear on the List we have your donation!!! Thanks, Bears First of many photographs of the Erskine Fish & Chips night made possible by your donations!
Have you heard of Bravehound? The Founder, Fiona McDonald was a guest of honour alongside our very own GB at the Erskine Military Ball. She shared details of what is involved in the Charity and we thought it a very worthwhile cause which might benefit from our support. Located in Erskine Bishopton and voted Best Charity in the National Lottery Awards surely assures us that this initiative has suitable credentials and pedigree to warrant our attention. We cannot name the dug so, Broxi is not an option. Interestingly, the dogs actually have to be named after Dickin Medal Winners. GB also mentioned something about a pigeon called Billy but I think we need to leave that for another day. Now comes the interesting bit: To offer support we would need to aim for a sum of £420 to pay for a year's sponsorship up-front. Some generous Erskine Members have already pledged or donated and I will of course list these Bears later in the thread. If you feel you would also like to get involved then please PM @Zetland for PayPal or Bank details. Send the amount of your choice which can be anything from £5 and upwards and then PM @govanblue to let him know you have donated. Maybe mention "dug" in the PM as this will help to get his attention! Thanks in anticipation of your support. RangersMedia Erskine Fund - Bravehound Fundraiser.
