Summer Raffle raises almost 3000

Statement from Ian Tyssen (York Minstermen Treasurer)

For the last few months, the York Minstermen Summer Raffle has been a massive project, which ahs involved the efforts of many people. Now everyone involved with the raffle can celebrate a great success.

Following a suggestion by Ian Savage, during the summer months a team of volunteers delivered raffle tickets to more than 1,200 Supporters Trust members homes. From Tadcaster to Beverley and Goole to Thirsk, the tickets were delivered to various locations. Malcolm Dixon, who has been a City fan for many years, delivered to 183 of the addresses on "the hit list".

Members of the Football Club and Trust Boards, Club staff, members of the local media, several players (and the Manager!) and fans from all over the country have bought and / or sold tickets. Cindy Benton from Acomb, managed to sell 90 worth of tickets to friends, family and workmates. One of her "customers" was ex City Player Iain Dunn!!

At the Canvey Island game on 15th October, Malcolm will be presenting a cheque for 3225-25 to the Trust (45 has already ben handed over) and Cindy (and a friend) will be Boardroom / Directors Box guests, as a reward for her efforts.
