What we did last season

Here’s the edited highlights:
– We took out a silver sponsorship package with Chorley FC
– Fourteen fans walked to Southport on New Year’s Day, raising £800 each for Derian House and Chorley Women’s Centre
– Our pledges scheme raised £3000 for youth development at Chorley FC
– We paid the broadcasting costs for the Magpies Live commentary service
– We hold monthly open meetings, usually attended by club board members, to help communication between the club and its supporters
– The fan ownership fund topped £25000, ready for the day when the fans can take a stake in their town’s football club.

What we want to do this season

– our pledges scheme is running again. this year we are splitting funds 50/50 between Chorley FC Women and youth development at Chorley FC
– Continue to grow the Fan Ownership Fund
– Another sponsored walk, watch this space
– Make the case for fan ownership
– Reinstate the Magpies Live commentary service
