Dewsbury Rams and its supporters have come together to raise funds in support of the club’s playing department.
The new initiative, named ‘All Together 2018’, will unite existing fundraising schemes, including the Dewsbury Faithful, #SquadGoals and further money raised by independent donations.
A target of £12,000 has been set, and the money will be used to help boost the Rams’ salary cap and enable head coach Neil Kelly to strengthen his playing squad.
The Amber Ribbon has made a one-off donation of £2,000 to the initiative and will otherwise continue to raise funds for a range of projects, as outlined in the organisation’s constitution.
£700 raised by the Dewsbury Faithful will also be added to the pot, alongside donations from other supporters totalling £670.
#SquadGoals, which is still in its infancy, has so far raised £60 towards the Squadbuilder fund. With the permission of those that have made donations, this money will be re-allocated to All Together 2018.
It will continue to operate in its current format, but all funds raised from this point will be donated to All Together 2018.
Squadbuilder will also continue to operate in its current format, and existing standing orders will be unaffected.
The total raised so far for All Together 2018 is £3,430.
The initiative is being spearheaded by supporters Neil Coulson, Graham Fisher, Peter Marsden and Ady Marsh, but is totally dependent on the support of the wider Rams community.
A Rams spokesperson said: “Thanks to the efforts of many, there are now a number of ways to make donations in support of the club.
“All Together 2018 will help to unite these causes, while retaining the different methods of donation that supporters have become familiar with.”
Visit #SquadGoals to make a one-off, online donation, or speak to Neil, Graham, Peter or Ady in the Royal Suite, Bailey Bar or Amber Ribbon bar at home matches.
