The Save Our Southend United Appeal
As all Southend fans will know, Southend United FC announced on 27th October that HMRC are now seeking an Administration for the football club we know and love.
If the Football Club is placed in administration it is vital that as soon as possible, working with the Administrator, Supporters Direct and local businesses, the club is put on a stable financial footing to preserve our league status and not be relegated to the lower reaches of the pyramid system.
To do this the Shrimpers Trust are keen to develop a fighting fund to help support the club through this period of crisis.
All monies raised will be used to either invest in the club or loan funds to the Administration to pay key bills (e.g. players' wages, ongoing VAT, Income tax and National Insurance bills, etc.). If the club do not enter Administration any funds gathered will be held in our fighting fund and used for the future benefit of Southend United.
To do this we need your hard earned cash as a donation.
All funds would be held by the Shrimpers Trust and only used to fund projects agreed with our members, the Administrator and Supporters' Direct.
Every one of us wants to see Southend United survive, so please give generously. A number of fundraising activities and public meetings are planned over the next few weeks to help 'Save Our Southend' so watch our website and the local press for further information.
