Quite simple, if you're not sure simply ask the taxman.

If you receive a benefit in kind, you are not a volunteer.

Any benefits in kind are taxable, therefore anyone who receives or expects a benefit is not a volunteer (you can't be taxed for giving your time for free).

Chairmen of Trust run clubs pay for season tickets.

If someone is expecting any benefit for work they do for a club, they are not volunteering their time. They are receiving a benefit in kind.

Sorry, but I don't write the laws of the land.

I wouldn't expect any benefit in kind for any organisation I was offering my service to on a volunteer basis.

Even if he is then it’s got to signed off on and justifiable.   He is the one who is accountable.  This is not something that can be treated lightly or the back of a fag packet job.


Vape packet, old timer!   :laughcry:

I wonder if the H&S officer has worked out what we can get into the Walks ?

Worked out? You don't think he'll be told what the capacity is going to be?   :laughcry:

A sign of things to come? A game due to be played on a Saturday called off with only 24 hours notice.



Workington’s stars self-isolating after positive test cans Carlisle clash.

Workington’s players are self-isolating this weekend instead of taking on Carlisle United in a friendly after a Reds star tested positive for Covid-19.

Saturday’s scheduled 3pm kick-off at Borough Park for Danny Grainger’s Northern Premier League side was cancelled on Friday afternoon after a test result came back positive following a contact training session on Tuesday.

A Friday night friendly at Creighton Rugby Club between the youth teams of the NPL Premier Division’s Reds and their League Two neighbours was also called off in the interests of safety.

Workington AFC chairman Les Byers told the Workington News & Star that the player who’d tested positive was not showing any symptoms of the virus and confirmed that the squad were now self-isolating for a period of 10 days starting from Tuesday.

A Reds statement read: “The behind-closed-doors pre-season friendly between Workington AFC and Carlisle United, due to be held at Borough Park tomorrow, has been cancelled.

“The Reds and Blues under-18 fixture, which was to be played tonight at Creighton Rugby Club, has also been cancelled with safety once again the first and foremost consideration.

“The first-team held a contact training session on Tuesday and since, one player has tested positive for Covid-19, even though he is currently asymptomatic.

“Under regulations, social distancing measures must be applied. We have moved quickly to ensure that the safety of our staff, players and those of United, remains paramount

Volunteers are worth their weight in gold, and need to be treated well.They need to be treated with respect. It needs to be understood that  they are volunteers and not employed staff.

Personally, I don't think that entitles them to, or should expect, any freebies such as free entry. That defeats the objective as far as I'm concerned.

Reading that if they aint the same company they must use the same marketing team as each other.

Its a slick industry. The people in this business certainly know how and who to target and how to get them to part with their hard earned cash.

...think LVbet might be  a NL sponsor rather than a specific club one

Yes. They were sponsors of NL last season, but I can't find anything that says they will be 2020/2021.   :dontknow:

Here's their blurb (from last season)................

LVBET are the new official betting partner of the League. They are an ambitious brand with a great selection of sports odds and markets as well as a super in-play offering. With daily enhanced odds, they have something new to offer every day along with sign up offers and promotions. During the season they will actively promote responsible gaming and look to engage with fans about the passion they have for the club they support.

General Discussion / The Trusts GDF-Supporter fund raising initiative
« on: August 12, 2020, 10:43:46 AM »

How about Contacting Mark Hearle to see if the Club would release the first of the new shirts off the production line, with the new sponsor's name.  Then get all the first team squad to sign it and The Trust run a raffle at a Fiver a ticket. 

I’ll even buy the shirt.

Maybe the Chairman could present the shirt to the winner.  Good photo opportunity for the Chairman/Club plus also help toward a reconciliation between SC and The Trust.

Thoughts?

I'm pleased to say that Mark Hearle has been in touch (via Richard) and that the Club have given their blessing with regards to Mallards suggestion (above), and his very kind offer to purchase a new team shirt, which the Trust will then raffle.

By sponsoring the cost of the shirt, 100% of the proceeds of the raffle can then go towards the GDF.

Please keep an eye on the forum, as further details will be posted as soon as possible.

Recent Trust activity has seen the GDF rise to a current amount of £3535:08.

Would it be worth seeing if you can fit in another season ticket raffle before the season kicks off, I would be willing to gamble another tenner? :dontknow:

I'll contact the Trust Chairman now and get his thoughts on it.

I've spoken to the Trust Chairman, and he thinks its a great idea and is willing to go with it.

Mallard, just to confirm. You'll be happy to purchase the shirt, so that 100% of money received via the sale of raffle tickets can go towards the GDF?

If that's the case, hopefully you will hear from Mark Hearle with regards to the Clubs agreement with the buying of the shirt for this purpose and obtaining the 1st team players signatures. If you don't hear anything, are you willing to email the Club?

This could be a real good fund raiser.......................and a nice item to own....................especially if at the end of the season this Squad takes us into the Football League.

I'm afraid footballers think they are above the law.
Unfortunately, that often seems to be the case.  :glum:

Not sure on that one for the moment, as apparently NL have advised Clubs not to sell season tickets for the time being.   :dontknow:

Done it this morning pay pal very difficuilt to get into

I'm not a fan of Paypal myself, but unless people are willing to do a Bank transfer (which is what I did), there's very few options.

Great to hear you purchased a ticket.....................good luck!
