After a phenomenal response from Salop fans saw our crowdfunder to purchase flags for the South Stand hit its £500 target in just a couple of days, rather than saying “job done”, we decided to expand our ambitions and double the target to £1000.
As the month went on, aided by press coverage in the Shropshire Star and Shrewsbury Chronicle, we edged closer and closer to the new ambitious target – and with days to spare we are delighted to have now reached the magic four figures.
The donation that got us over the line came from “Salopian Pride”, who describe themselves as “Shrewsbury Town’s group for LGBTQ+ Fans and Allies”, who can be found on Twitter at @salopianpride. Their donation of £60 is amongst the biggest we have received and we will ensure it is put to good use!
For those who would still like to contribute, time is now of the essence, with the crowdfunder due to close early in the morning of Friday July 5th – just visit https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/southstandflags to chip in. All donations are gratefully received and will allow to make our project even bigger and better.
In the meantime, things are progressing with the designs and we will be looking at purchasing the flags in plenty of time for the season-opener against Portsmouth. We will announce more details in due course but we are very excited about bringing some of the suggestions put to us to fruition. We hope you’ll like what is in store.
Come on You Blues. Up the Flags.
