You can only go to the well so many times I'm affraid... This is where we are times are tough money is tight, but hopefully we will come through it ok.. Don't forget Andy has Darlo lottery going on via Twitter etc looks like he is smashing the £1000 mark for the club so every little helps..

Could be. Also quite a rich area so might be a couple of big donors who aren't being unduly financially challenged

Maybe Alty fans aren’t also paying into a boost the budget scheme like a lot of us are.
Exactly! The £20K was always a soft target anyway based on the projective revenue loss 4 weeks ago.

It’s really positive that the target has been reduced as it must mean the club isn’t far away from having enough revenue to pay the wages and get to the end of the month when most contracts will finish. I expect many clubs would love to be in that position.

I'm disappointed that you find this effort disappointing. We have hit so many targets over the years and we will hit this reduced target. When many are already contributing regularly in a number of other ways and families, including some of my own have no income I think this is a tremendous achievement and should be applauded.

Well said that man. Those who feel it is disappointing should look out of the window and give their collective head a shake. :roll:

DFCSG are very much in the same mindset. In the the regular emails I've received about the 'Virtual Ticket' scheme, DFCSG have made it crystal clear that "All donations great or small will ease the pressure on the Directors running the Club on the owners behalf. However, please do not feel under any pressure to donate. Yours and your family’s wellbeing is of a far higher priority."

Once again target achieved so well done everyone who contributed to help our club in a time of crisis and financial difficulty. Very proud to be part of this fanbase. Brilliant effort.

And now after that target was reached we're already £45,000 into a new target after less than two days. Are you still finding our efforts "disappointing"? Once again I'm feeling great pride in being part of something special.
