to build closer links between the supporters and the players and to fundraise for the club in order to facilitate growth and success. Last year you helped us raise over £5000 by supporting the tuck shop, raffles, 50/50, various social events, and membership fees. This year there is no supporters club membership as the club is introducing a new Club Membership. However in order to reach this years target of £7000 we need you, the fans to be involved by coming along to the various events we organise, eating lot’s of mars bars, crisps etc and drinking copious amounts of coke on games night (bought from the tuck shop obviously!!) It’s a great opportunity to socialise with the players and at the same time help to raise some much needed cash for the club.
This season, the Supporters Club have been involved in organising several social and fund raising events. These have included a Quiz and Skittles Night, a Race Night, a meal out at Mangal Turkish Restaurant, who are an official sponsor of the club, as well as a sponsored 12 Hour darts Marathon.
These events have typically seen good attendances, including many fans, players and coaches, and have offered supporters a great chance to socialise with the players. These events are on top of the fund raising activities members undertake on Match Nights running the Tuck Shop, 50/50 Draw, Half Time Shootout etc.
If anyone would like to join the supporters club or have any suggestions for events or fund raising activities please free to approach someone at the Supporters Club Table on game day, or call the Riders office on 0116 2558635. You will be made to feel very welcome!
