Three months have passed since your Trust acquired control of our Club and, as many of you will have noticed, quite a few things have changed, most, if not all, for the better, we think.
However, as is always the way with change, and particularly change of this size and nature, there are some significant costs that still have to be covered. Whilst the Trust is committed to, and is well advanced on the process of reducing operating costs, and is still looking for new ideas to increase revenue, there are some pretty hefty legal bills that have to be settled. To date, the lawyers have been very patient and understanding, but there is obviously a limit to such consideration.
Not to put too fine a point on it, we have outstanding legal bills of £125k and that in our 125th year, is an unfortunate coincidence!
The Trust is therefore appealing to anyone, either personally or corporately, who is in the fortunate position of being able to offer financial support, either in the way of loans or gifts, to contact us as soon as you possibly can.
We are in the process of developing a ‘Club Partners’ scheme, which will seek to recognise offers of financial support in a manner commensurate with the size of such support. Any offers received as a result of this appeal will be included in such a scheme, the details of which are still to be finalised.
However, the need for financial support is urgent, hence the reason for seeking your help NOW.
Your support will enable the Trust to continue to operate in a constructive fashion, seeking to put fans first, to ensure that our club is financially secure and to safeguard the heritage of Wycombe Wanderers Football Club. Those were our objectives leading up to acquiring control and they remain so!
Your help at this challenging, but exciting, time will be appreciated. Please contact the Wycombe Wanderers Trust Chairman, Trevor Stroud, at Trevor@wycombewandererstrust.com
There are two possible ways to make your donation, either by electronic transfer, details are below, or by cheque payable to Wycombe Wanderers Trust and either handed in to the Club or the Trust Directors lurking under the Gazebo as you come into the ground at home games.
