Dear Trust Member,
I hope that you and your family are safe and well in these strange times. Hopefully it will not be too long before we will be allowed back into Adams Park, to cheer on Gareth, Dobbo and our team in the Championship!
As you know, Wycombe Wanderers Trust is the fans’ link to WWFC, where you can get your voice heard and genuinely influence the way the Club is run.
In order to maintain that influence, it is vital that the Trust is able to raise sufficient funds to maintain our 25% ownership of Wycombe Wanderers FC, if and when new capital investment in the Club is needed.
That is why we are launching a new-style Trust membership scheme.
As well as ‘supporting the quarter’, if you renew your Trust membership, you will also get a range of benefits, including:
Admission to the “open session” of every monthly Trust board meeting – your chance to have your say in the way the Club is run.
A £10 gift voucher, which can be used in the Club shop, online or in the bars on matchdays, against a purchase of £25 or more.
Priority booking after STH for all Cup matches.
‘Bring A Friend’ to a game and earn £5 for Trust funds.
Free entry to a special ‘Trust Night’, an annual evening get together at Adams Park, with players, managers, the Club Board and Trust board in attendance.
Entry into a quarterly draw for a signed player’s shirt or training top.
Exclusive access to streamed Live Webinars with Rob and Pete Couhig, and Gareth Ainsworth, held regularly during the season.
Beyond retaining 100% ownership of Adams Park, our key role is representing the views of supporters and ensuring that fans will continue to have a say in the way the Club is run.
That is why we are urging everyone to renew their membership and, indeed, encourage friends and family to join too.
There are now three annual membership categories:
Adult £2.50/month or £30 pa
Seniors (65+) £1.75/month or £21 pa
Juniors (U18) £10 pa
If you would like to, you can pay more, monthly or annually, to help ‘support the quarter’.
To renew your membership:
Via monthly or annual direct debit, please visit the Trust’s website, click here http://wycombewandererstrust.com/home-2020join-the-trust
For existing Trust members who wish to continue to pay annually by standing order, please amend the amount to £30/£21/£10 via your banking app or by contacting your bank. You must do this before your Standing order is due for payment. Some are dated 1st October, but most are 1st November 2020.
Thank you for your continuing support and I hope it will not be too long before we are all back together again at Adams Park.
So, as I understand it, for £20 quid more you get less say (as we are now a minority shareholder) but £10 off in the club shop.
Obviously a pessimistic view, but can someone elaborate on why I need to pay a further 20 quid for less of a say in the running of our (their) club?
