    ok we are looking to raise about a grand if possible, a kind of "fighting fund" so that we can do some good stuff in the first few home games

    ideas people want us to try and do are a "welcome champions" type display, could be thousand of blue and white foils and a special message being revealed. it could be a very large banner dropping down from one tier onto another. we would like to start off with something visual and set the tone for the new year, perhaps something with the 2 trophies on won last season.

    we have been fundraising since the end of may. had about £500 in so far. out of that money had to be invested in badges which are being sold when people take memberships. they are £5 and including range of benefits including priority for any singing blocks we organise for cup games - details from mailing the1894group@yahoo.co.uk we have invested in 100 stick flags to sell at the first couple of home games to give us a bit of rolling cash flow, leaves a couple of hundred over.

    other ideas would be having something large appear perhaps on pulleys like some of these groups abroad have done. there are a couple more large stick flags waiting to be funded, a large pablo zabaleta flag and one of the 68 team with the 3 trophies in front of them, the league, the fa cup and the charity shield.

    there's a million things we'd like to do in truth these ideas are the tip of the iceberg. we want to do something every game again.

    we are accepting one off donations from individuals, from people who want to set up direct debits even ! none of it will go to personal benefit. all goes on making things happen at home games. you can donate via paypal using the email address - the1894group@yahoo.co.uk or just mail it and we can provide bank co-ordinates for you to pay into

    we are still selling the pellegrini "this charming man" tshirts. two ways of getting these. one is to go via this link - <a class="postlink" href="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1894-Group-This-Charming-Man-T-Shirt-/301205123412" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1894-Group-Th ... 1205123412</a>? - the other is to drop a mail to - merchandise1894@btinternet.com and you'll get a response

    we will visit any supporters club in the uk and we will do what we can to make things better. you can favourite our webpage - <a class="postlink" href="http://www.1894group.co.uk-" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.1894group.co.uk-</a> which takes you to our twitter our facebook and our app. we have 5.5k on twitter and 2.5k on facebook so that tends to be where we announce things in the main.

    we will give updates during the summer on money raised and what we purchase for august

    donations dried up a bit understandably but if anyone can still help financially they can drop us a mail to the1894group@yahoo.co.uk with any offers of support. thats also the email address to use if donating by paypal

    what are 1894's plans with regards to the stadium expansion? Presumably this is the perfect opportunity for you to get really established. The improved acoustics of a top tier should help no end.
