News From The Boardroom

The Wycombe Wanderers Trust (“WWT”) Board met on Wednesday 15th October for their regular monthly meeting.

Andrew Howard as WWFC Chairman attended for the first part of the meeting and updated the WWT Board on various football club matters.

There are many new initiatives being formulated which WWFC will announce in due course, including the announcement of a new sponsor (Bucks New University) being obtained for the Valley End Terrace. Click here for more on that story.

The Trust has so far received about £2,500 from the Snowdon and Ben Nevis sponsored climbs undertaken by members this year. There is still more to come.

The WWT Community Share Offer Scheme document is now very close to completion with the new budgets included. This has to have HMRC approval for the EIS tax relief before we can formally launch the Share Scheme. The aim is still to launch this in November and we will combine this with a Trust Members Update Meeting.

Matchday Badge sales have so far produced a profit of £730 from the first 7 home games.

The Trust is also getting  further income from the use of Easyfundraising.com for online shopping.

Plans are now being finalised for the next informal Fans Night on Wednesday 29th October starting at 6.30pm in ‘Scores’. The emphasis this time will be on our younger fans for whom there will be age-related competitions with prizes to be won. More to be announced shortly on this event.

The renewal of the former Loakes Park WW1 memorial plaque is proving more costly than was hoped. If anyone knows of a company that could provide this service to us, then please get in touch with Keith Blagbrough.

The next AGM of the Trust will be held in February 2015.

The WWT Directors collectively have sponsored the away shirt of Peter Murphy.
