Quick update;

880 in the pot, with 1,390 in the original website find.

2,270 raised so far, with obviously the fans paying for a part of the frost covers to. I think this is a great effort by all!

Dig deep lads and lasses?

Some valid points raised here, I gave a 3 figure donation to the other appeal, is that money going to be added to the "Just Giving Page"?
Just a simple yes or no will do.

Yes, they shall be getting added shortly. They will be added via the offline donations on the Just-giving page. This figure will be updated daily for any people that do choose to donate through the "4 game package". The just-giving page has now taken over from the Donations page on the website basically.

Positive note; the just-giving page has already reached 145 with only three donations made. If everyone donates what that would have spent at the 4 remaining home games- which I believe some people have already done via the "4 game package" so them people do't worry (unless you're feeling flushed and want to donate again) then I think we should be hitting this target in good time!

Does the money already donated go into this fund?

I would probably say in the background it will, and i'm sure the club are appreciative of the money already raised. But I believe the club wanted to go down the avenue of a just giving page. Suppose if we can raise 5,000 across the board again, happy days!

The football club would like to respond to story's circulating on social media outlets in regards to the club approaching the Blue & Gold supporters club, asking for a donation to assist the club , following the suspension of all football due to the coronavirus pandemic currently affecting all of the country.

After reading reports that the Leyton Orient supporters club ( LOSC ) had given a donation of 20,000 ( having already donated 31,000 over the last few months) to help ease some of the cash shortfall created by Leyton Orient's own shutdown, the club approached the Blue & Gold Trust over the weekend asking for a  donation to be made to the club to help out in the same way as the donations being made by individual supporters have been.

After consulting with their board members the Trust informed the football club that there was no 'consensus' to lend any money to the football club. Their suggestion was that there was a possibility that a loan could be made but it would be subject to adequate security.  They would accept security of a charge on the lease of the stadium which would need to be approved by the Council. This would require Council approval and would not be a short term solution.

The trust further pointed out to the club that if the club defaulted on the loan then whilst Stephen Cleeve would own the football club they would own the lease on the Stadium and we would need to negotiate with them a deal to move forward.  We were also told that the trust would add their legal fees to the loan amount'.

The football club has declined the trust's offer of assistance but thank them for speaking to their board of directors and making an offer to the club.

Speaking to the club's official website Chairman Stephen Cleeve added ' We are setting up a Just Giving Page which will have a totaliser so fans can see what is being given and this can be found here

We have no idea at this stage what is going on and have been given no direction and so are in a very uncomfortable limbo land - however I have been working 15 hours a day to find solutions and I will continue to do the same until we come out the other side.  Keep the faith, keep well and look after each other and thanks to every fan home and abroad who have helped and continue to help the club.

I believe King is out of contract at the end of the season, but highly thought of from the supporters at Halifax, so cannot see him coming her personally. After all, hes probably full time wages now, and its whether the club will go full time, or stay part time. Which I can think part time is best option for atleast a season.
