John McGinlay & Kevin Davies Go Head-To-Head To Recruit Trust Members
Well, what an unbelievable week. On Monday we had zero members and a website that wasn’t ready to allow people to sign up to the Trust. Fast forward five days and we’re closing in on 4,000 members, have an amazing site and have submitted our paperwork to get this Trust registered and running like clockwork.
Despite the Bolton Wanderers community showing their unwavering support, the five of us (that’s the BWFCST Steering Group – Christopher, Mike, Ian, Jonny and Jamie) have recognised that not all Wanderers fans are social media users, which is where the majority of our members have been recruited. We’re aware there are people, both young and old, that are passionate about this club and want to be part of the Trust. We racked our brains and came up with what we believe is the best way to facilitate everyone joining the Trust.
On Tuesday 19th and Saturday 23rd January, we’ll be having ourselves a little contest – of the Superman kind. Both Super John McGinlay and Super Kevin Davies will be around the ground campaigning for Trust members, and whoever gets the most people to sign up, wins! Starting at around 6:15pm on Tuesday evening, before the FA Cup third round replay against Eastleigh, our Supermen will be roaming around the Macron Stadium with forms for fans to fill out. We’ll have sign-up stations on all sides of the ground, including outside Bolton Central. You can meet your Wanderers heroes, sign up to the Trust in person and hopefully see us progress into the next round of the competition, all in one night! What more could you ask for?
As you can imagine, it’s quite a task for the five of us to organise all this by ourselves, and that’s where you come in. We’re appealing for volunteers to help us distribute the leaflets on both Tuesday and Saturday, assisting anyone that would like to sign up for the Trust and generally giving a helping hand in any way they can.
If you’re free and available to help from around 6pm on Tuesday and 1pm on Saturday, please email Enquiries@BWFCST.co.uk and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
As always, thank you for your incredible support. Without you, none of this would be possible.
