A statement from the Dale Trust...
Over the past 12 months Rochdale Supporters Trust has worked hard to link the supporters and community with the football club, the Trust is basically run by a board of volunteers and we are short on numbers.
This past 12 months we have not been able to provide the usual number of events of the past few years mainly due to a lack of numbers, we are getting to the point where manning the Trust Desk in the Dale Bar is becoming a struggle due to a shortage of volunteers and their various commitments.
The thing is, we want to do more, we have a number of ideas and events we want to get in motion but we need help, we are looking for people to give a commitment to the Trust to enable us to carry on the work we do.
With a race night planned in March 2015, the annual exiles day, events in conjunction with Dale in the Community, the match day Trust desk and Player of the Season awards evening, we have a number of commitments and if you could help we’d love to hear from you.
We have lost some board members this year, we’ve had to go through an Arbitration case which although the Trust defended successfully ended up taking a lot of time and energy and costing the Trust the equivalent of 50% of our adult member subscriptions and. If we don’t increase our numbers both on the board and volunteers we simply won’t be able to carry on.
If you feel you can give an hour before a match day once a month, if you want to help raise funds for our chosen charity Springhill Hospice through our planned events in 2015 or want to find out more where we need help please get in touch.
We’ve had a few hurdles to overcome this year but we see 2015 as a fresh start making the Trust stronger with new and enthusiastic volunteers.
We look forward to hearing from or chatting with you at the Trust desk.
