FC Halifax Town: “We will provide financial assistance where we are able” say Supporters Club
FC Halifax Town’s supporters club has vowed to provide as much financial help as they can after The Shaymen announced they were applying for a loan of around £400,000.
As revealed in last week’s Halifax Courier, Town will be applying for a low cost loan of around £400,000 from Sport England to cover the overall running costs and see them through to the end of the financial year on June 30.
Kit Walton, chair of the supporters club, said: “The decision of FC Halifax Town to apply for a low-cost loan is completely understandable.
“The Supporters Club are pleased that details of the loan have been made public, but recognise that the sheer size of the loan represents a serious challenge to all connected with the Shaymen.
“We will work closely with the club to provide financial assistance where we are able.”
Town fans have already donated more than £5,000 to the club’s Big Support initiative.
“It is pleasing to report that a number of fans have already been in touch with offers of donations, writing off refunds on season tickets, and with many suggestions as to how we may start fundraising to help secure the long-term future of our football club,” said Mr Walton.
“Above all, we wish to demonstrate to the club that they still have the support of fans, even though we are currently unable to attend matches.” If you would like to donate, visit https://www.fchtshop.com/the-big-support-1820-p.asp.
