My wife and I joined today, plus we put 500 pounds directly into 1883. Not too much I know but every little helps!

Interesting .... sometimes when am acused of having my head in the sand, I think they are right. How did I miss that? Excellent Tori and nice one John.

Good on you John, hope all is well over in Macedonia.

The penultimate benefit should be the only one that really matters to anyone to be honest (and should probably be in bold at the top, or bottom, of the list), but it is good to see that there are a variety of other quantifiable benefits too.

Just needs a link adding so people can donate there and then

Excellent. It's my dads birthday coming up so great present idea for him. After all it was his fault he got me supporting Darlo!

just donated my £100 refunded from crowd cube - I was a bit slow in getting round to it - certainly was spurred on by the appointment of the coach and management team.
Also I feel things are moving in the right direction and am looking forward and optimistic about the future.

D_F_C - 7th June 2012 20:18:52

just done my £100 from crowdcube

leedscol - 7th June 2012 21:38:06

Me too.Spurred on by the signings.

It definitely helped clarify things and my Crowdcube money is now in 1883 CIC.

Craig/Scott/Tori - These benefits now need to be publicised as much as possible so that everyone understands and is therefore encouraged to join.

Black'n'White Army - 8th June 2012 06:40:42

Well thats my money donated. Now looking forward to going forward.

Just wanted to say what a tremendous development the benefits package is. My only criticism is that it may not go far enough and I do feel that there should be some repackaging around contributions - gold (matchday experience, parking privileges), silver and bronze or something similar. Personally, I don't care about the benefits as I didn't expect any 'dividend' (money or otherwise) but there may be investors who are more interested in these things. I'm hoping the Trust develop a tiered membership scheme. I think a lot of investors still see shares as conveying an economic privilege which I don't agree with for a CIC. However, I'm less opposed to non remunerative benefits. Morgan on the Echo has been banging on about dividends and I am realistic enough to know there will be others like him.

I've lumped by Crowdcube money back into 1883. It was always going to happen.

You can all sleep soundly in your beds again.

Wanting to transfer my money across that I'd previously put into Crowdcube. Only issue is that I cannot use my e-mail as a reference on the bank transfer due to it having '.'s in it (and NatWest does not approve of '.'s).

Presumably just using my name as a reference will suffice?

This query should perhaps be in the 'Ask 1883' forum but I thought it was pertinent to this thread.

divas - 8th June 2012 13:34:22

Yes just put your name, as long as it matches the name on your application of course ;)

Spot on mate. can you stick this on the 1883 forum. Like it. Drives a balance between meeting the interest of the community and the private interests of shareholders.

I'd be interested to hear what Divas thinks.

He's normally busy with the 1883 fundraising group, and talking to people in the know about next season at the Arena.

That and fighting for free speech...
