One of the major roles of Forever Bury is to raise as much money as possible to help ease the crippling amount of debt that still exists even after the administration period that Bury FC was subjected to. We have devised various schemes that we hope will raise considerable sums of money for us.
Forever Bury Beer
This was one of the first ventures of Forever Bury and it will ultimately prove to be one of the most successful. The beer is brewed by Leyden Breweries and we receive £5 for every barrel sold and 10p for every bottle. What better excuse could you have for having a pint?
Sponsor Andy Bishop
As many supporters will be aware, Forever Bury was instrumental in bringing Andy Bishop to the club, and he has become the Forever Bury sponsored player. As a means of raising funds we are asking supporters to sponsor Andy’s goals for this season. Individuals have already signed up to sponsor Andy for each league and/or cup goal he scores, and to date each goal is worth around £60 to Forever Bury. In addition, there are some people who have pledged a total amount for the season, rather than per goal.
It is still not too late to sponsor Andy. Just call in the Forever Bury cabin, and pick up your sponsorship form. You can sponsor him for as little or as much as you like, and per goal or a total amount for the season. Alternatively, you can download the form online here.
The Money Box Appeal (Time for Change at Gigg)
A simple scheme that could raise huge amounts of revenue. Moneyboxes have been distributed and people have been asked to put their small – and not so small – change into them and, when full, return them to Gigg Lane where we will reward them by giving them an empty one so they can go and do it all again! Just have a guess at how many pennies it would take to cover the pitch…
Bury FC Fundraising Schemes
Bury FC run various corporate and individual hospitality packages at Gigg Lane, and not just on match days either.
The External Relations Group devised a leaflet to distribute to all the businesses in the Bury area. This was one of the many schemes that have been financed by our sponsors.
