Last Friday one of our life long fans Eric Robins held his birthday party in the club, Eric used his own birthday party as a fundraising event which was a great sucess. Eric has always been a valued part of our club and his relentless fundraising efforts are really appriciated from the directors and staff of Stafford Rangers Football Club. We thank you Eric for your support and generosity you really are one in a million and the world could use more Eric Robins – Every non league football club could use an Eric!
Below is a message direct from Eric:
I held my combined birthday / fund raising party on Friday 24th January in the Jon Downing Suite. 120 invites went out and although I was slightly disappointed that 38 were unable to attend for various reasons, I was delighted with the support I received from the 82 guests. Their generosity was greatly appreciated which enabled me to raise £630 for the players fund. The raffle raised £250 and thanks to Kerry Wingate and Ursula Parker for their support in selling the tickets. Personal donations raised a fantastic £390.00.
I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening which was quite emotional when Sally surprised me with a cake and a message from my friends at the 60’s bar in Los Gigantes, Tenerife.
The feedback I received from my guests was that they all enjoyed themselves and thought the band I booked on the night; The Dodgy jammers were great!
To all those friends who attended many thanks for your support which enabled me to beat my target by £150.00.
