Kettering Town president Ken Samuel has said the club’s fundraising appeal is to continue, after donations broke the £10,000 mark.
The Poppies, playing this season in the National League North, have like so many clubs been fighting to adjust to the 2019/20 campaign being suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of the club’s fundraising efforts, Samuel has said: “I am very pleased to report that my initial target of £10,000 has been achieved after just 13 days, with the amount now standing at a fantastic £10,110. This is due to 63 different donations over the period and some great generosity of both current fans, and those who were fans and have moved away from the area.”
Samuel goes on to add: “I have received even more pledges and have therefore decided to keep the appeal going for a while longer. Your cash has allowed the club to settle bills to small suppliers, which is crucial for them to survive this period.
“I hope the club will be able to update us on the overall position shortly. In the meantime, there is a hope that I can achieve my next target – up to £12,500 in the next week or so and I will update again next Sunday.”
