GRANTHAM BRANCH RAISE FUNDS FOR PINK OCTOBER


29 November 2021

Members of the Grantham  branch on their way to QPR  raising funds for Pink October  in 2021.

 
Last month Lyle Taylor went pink to help raise funds for Cancer Research UK, and to show their support for this great cause the Grantham branch of the supporters club organised their own fund raising day when they travelled down to London for our away match at QPR. We caught up with Grantham branch committee member Trevor Hall to see what they got up to.

First of all, whose idea was it to organise a fund-raising day for Pink October on your coach to QPR?


I don't really think it was anyone's idea specifically, we spoke about it on the way home from the Bristol City game and it transpired from that. Probably Lyle's two late goals had something to do with it. Some of us have done charity work in the past for various causes and so it seemed the right thing to do, because we really do have some great characters who are regular travellers on our coach, as I'm sure other branches do too.

Cancer affects all of us in one way or another during our lives, have any of your members got any specific stories that spurned you into your fund raising efforts?

We have a couple of committee members who have lost wives or partners to cancer, and no doubt others who travel with us have too who we are not aware of.

What did you all get up to on your journey down to London to raise funds?

One of our committee got his Mum to bake a load of beautiful cakes and muffins and we sold them off on the coach. We call her 'Lady Chandler Towers', but that's another story! We also had a game of bingo with prizes. Yes really, it's something we do on just about every coach believe it or not, and we have such a laugh doing it.

When we had a refreshment stop (if you get my drift!), we had a mass re-spray before we re-boarded the coach. We even managed to convince Bob Taylor, our legendary chairman and now in his 80's, to take part and have his hair sprayed pink too. Some suggested he just wore one of our pink wigs but he decided to go the whole hog!

How much money did you rise throughout the day?

We raised just over £215, which included some donations too and we were really pleased with that. We would have been very happy with £50, so raising so much was an absolute bonus.

Lyle Taylor has been going pink to raise funds for Cancer Research UK for many years now, what do you think of his work on this each year?

Footballers often get a reputation for being greedy, overpaid young men with no perspective on real life, so to see someone like Lyle promoting such a good cause and doing it in a way that really gets noticed is a great thing. Lets hope it continues and that others take a leaf out of his book. Well done Lyle.

Well done to all of the Grantham branch for their fund raising efforts last month, and we look forward to see what they get up to next year!

Volunteers would be asked to help with selling raffle tickets around the club and generally assist Joan and Keith in keeping things running on a busy match day.

2021 NOTTINGHAM FOREST SUPPORTERS CLUB AGM


3 October 2021



The AGM of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club will be held on Saturday 6th November 2021 before our home game with Preston North End, which takes place later that afternoon.


It will take place at the City Ground's Legends' Lounge, formerly known as the Pitch Diner, in the Trent End stand. Doors will open at 10.30am for a 10.45am start. We apologise for the early start, which we know does inconvenience branch members from further afield, but unfortunately the football club need the room vacated for match day corporate clients.

There is a lift available to the Legends' Lounge from the main entrance and tea and coffee will be available before the meeting, which will take approximately one hour.  All supporters club members are welcome to attend, but please remember to bring your 2021/22 membership card on the day to gain entry.

We have invited members of the football clubs Executive Board to the AGM, including our new CEO Dane Murphy and Chairman Nicholas Randall QC, to speak to us and answer any questions you may have, so we are hoping for a good attendance on the day.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST SUPPORTERS CLUB PLAYER AWARDS


9 May 2021


 
This weekend our Player of the Year and David Howard Young Player of the Year awards were presented to the winning players.

Reds defender Joe Worrall has been voted as the Nottingham Forest Supporters Club Player of the Year and Gedling branch Player of the Year, whilst Alex Mighten claims the David Howard trophy for Young Player of the Year.

A consistent performer in the back four, Joe has made 31 league appearances for The Reds this season and is humbled to see his contribution recognised by supporters. "Growing up watching Forest and being able to play for the club is a dream come true so to be recognised on a personal level means a lot," he said. “I’ve been unlucky with the two injuries but coming back into the side and being captain on numerous occasions has been an honour and I’ve always played each game as though it’s my last.”

Mighten, who has only just turned 19, made 27 appearances for The Reds in all competitions this campaign and returned 3 goals, his first coming away at Millwall in December. “It’s a huge honour to be voted for this award. From coming through the academy to getting to the point I’m at now – it’s been a really enjoyable season on a personal level,” he said “I’ve been really grateful to have the chance to play more minutes and gain confidence as a player. “We’ve got a lot of work to do next season both individually and as a team. We know where we want to end up next season and we’ll get there step by step. “We just want to keep progressing and hopefully the fans will be back to help us with that.”

Thank you to all of you who casted your votes and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to The City Ground soon.
