Fundraising

Post by AndyPark » Mon May 13, 2013 1:23 pm

Me & 2 mates had a chat the other day and have to an agreement, were going to 1 sponsored walk per season to raise funds for the club.

We are waiting for the fixtures to come out & with any luck we are looking to walk to 1 of the first away games of the new season!

All monies to be given to Darlington FC in hope they can somehow help with a new stadium fund! Maybe not a lot, but every little helps!

Nope, that got closed down a while back mate; no point keeping it after my last walk.

But sooner these fixtures come out, the better for us. Then we can organising it.

Maybe a walk from our home ground to somewhere like Bishop Auckland?

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Andy, can you try to make it a game when maybe Pools aren't playing. As you know I have doubts (very big one's) that you did the last one. So I would like to do it with you then I can tell everyone you did complete it. I'll get some sponsorship and if you don't mind I'll give it to the Firefighters Charity, maybe we can do a fairly long one I'll contact fire stations and hopefully get us overnight accommodation, beats a tent.

Why would Andy care whether you think he did it or not?

If your serious about it, then I ain't bothered. More than welcome to join us. Where I will prove you wrong!

But you'll be waiting a while for official confirmation, as us 3 are waiting on the fixtures to be released before deciding which game to walk to.

Any queries, keep it to PM.

Good luck raising money for the club Andy, but what excuse are you going to use for bollocksing it up again?

Nice of you to let Bob tag along. As I recall, his doubts came from the extreme pace you set last time , so I hope he can keep up.

To be honest if Andy is willing which he seems to be, having a poolie (no disrespect lol) join him is a good idea, promotes community etc

Far from it Fatty, the £5 I give to him had absolutely nothing to do with any walk it was given for your 3rd/4th/5th bucket collection (can't remember which one you've had that many :lol: :lol: ). He set a pace that was ridiculous and in nothing more than a pair of Nike (or similar) trainers. Think it allegedly took him 2 and bit days to walk something like 130 miles. I'm a sceptic nothing will convince me he actually walked it all.Now having walked from the Vic to Bootham Crescent in aid of disabled Pools player we did that in same time so you can see why I doubt him.

Good effort Andy :thumbup: It didn't take long for another to jump on-board though,last time Snowscape - this time Bob.

I'll say this once though, I ain't working around you & your ideas.

- We are sticking to this idea.
- We are to do it when we are free from work etc, close to start of the season if possible for all of us.
- Doing it whether Pools are away or not.
- If your not available for the set date, then we won't be waiting around.


I am to still speak to my other walkers to see if they'd be alright with a Hartlepool fan joining es en-route; shouldn't be a problem. But still needs to be asked.


We'll discuss it more when our fixtures have come out.

So, preliminary. You best do some training for the walk :thumbup:

Fetish there with an impassioned audition to play the part of 'Creepy And Oddly-Competitive Old Man Who Comes Out Of Nowhere To Stalk A Young Boy And Weird The Fuck Out Of What Should Be An Innocent Fundraising Attempt' at this year's event. A fine attempt.

Clownscape is a hard act to follow, but I thought this was a strong pitch. The firefighters stuff was nicely improvised and although it got a bit Operation Yewtree when you mentioned 'overnight accomodation' *shudder*, you've clearly got a lot of enthusiasm for the part. Thanks, Bob. Looks like Andy will be in touch so no need to post again.

Fat Tony makes a good point,it is a bit of a worry, overnight accommodation with a stranger by the name of Return_of_Fetish.

Still no reply to this Bob? Thought you wanted me to prove you wrong?

Tell you what, don't bother with the assumption of joining us.
If you wanted to join us, you'd of been in touch by now to try sorting something out :wave:
