Rally fund tops €20,000 on day six
Six days into Rally Around Rovers, the fundraising drive from a group of Sligo Rovers fans, and €20,000 has now been pledged to the Bit o’ Red.
In under a week, supporters of the club have shown incredible support in a time when Sligo Rovers are facing a number of difficult challenges.
The halfway point has been reached in the target set by the supporters group. Over the next two weeks, the aim is to reach €40,000 and help bring about a brighter future for Rovers. The group are asking each supporter to contribute €10 a week or €100 in a single payment if preferred.
Contributions can be made in several ways. All members of the fundraising committee can be contacted via details at the bottom of the page.
€10 payments per week can be made to any sub-committee or committee member and in The Showgrounds office.
€100 payments can also be made via the club office in person or by credit card via phone between 10am and 2pm on weekdays (071-9171212) or to any member of the management committee.

The group are liaising with members of some members Sligo Rovers management committee including Robbie Fitzpatrick, Brendan Lacken, Paddy Houze and Andy Dodd.
We will personally acknowledge every person who contributes. Each individual who gets involved will receive a unique bade, which we hope, in time, will be appreciated as a reminder and memento of how people stood by the club when support was needed. The full list of contributors will be posted on the club website later this week, with the option to remain anonymous if desired.
Members of the fundraising sub-committee also will be at the Shamrock Rovers game next week beside the programme shop if supporters wish to make a payment on the night. Many €10 a week payments were made at the Derry game – these can be made each week in The Showgrounds or at home games. The group wish to thanks every supporter that has donated so far and are delighted with the backing it has received.
As part of this process we will take a detailed look at the club's running costs, presenting our analysis of this data to supporters and participating in a discussion forum with supporters at the end of the season.
All those who join this campaign will be invited to attend and contribute to this evaluation process.
