NCFC Official Supporters Association are stepping-up in attempts to assist club staff who’ve not yet been paid and who may, as a result of this, be facing hardship. (We understand that the PFA will assist players in this matter, so this Appeal would not include them).
If you are a Staff Member and need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact NCFCOSA in their office at the ground. This office will be open and manned between 10am – 1pm each day of this coming week. Your personal information and circumstances will be treated in the strictest of confidence and in line with GDPR.
It’s hoped that, as was the case with our last ‘Call to Action’ to secure enough moneys to pay for Philip Haffenden’s funeral – which our fabulous supporters DID in a very short time – Notts fans will, once again, ‘hear’ this plea.
Currently, we’re unable to ‘set a target’ for this “Emergency Fund” because we’re unsure of how many people have been affected by this situation and/or their needs. However, we feel – as many of the club’s fans do – that we’re unable to just sit back and let people ‘suffer’ through no fault of their own! It is expected that, rather than ‘cash’ payments to anyone, the NCFCOSA Emergency Fund will provide recipients with Vouchers.
It may also be the case, that the set-up of a Food Bank could be necessary in the future, but we’ll provide full details of that once we know more.
Full information on the work of NCFC Official Supporters Association can be found at: www.ncfcosa.co.uk together with details of joining us for this and some innovative future projects, via a £10 p.a. Membership subscription. It’s hoped that supporters will, at this extremely bumpy time in our club’s history, take this opportunity of joining us to ensure solidarity of aim and love for our club: both now and in the future.
