ECDSA Out & About
Membership recruitment officer Martin Robertson recently attended a local charity dog show setup by the Forever Hounds Trust on behalf of our Disabled Supporters Association by taking us out to the wider community.
The event was a successful day and Martin was able to raise £87.50 by signing up new members; renewals; badge sells and kind donations.
Martin was not just there to promote what we at the DSA does but to encourage members of the public with working (assistance) dogs to attend matches up at the park as the club has an Assistance Dog’s policy and feedback from supporters with assistant dogs have been very positive. Martin also helped to promote the club in other ways by handing out fixture cards and posters to those at the dog show.
We also had a stand by the club shop before the Swindon game and with Martin’s help again we raised another £95 by increasing our membership further; renewals and badge sells.
You don’t have to have a disability to join our association and if you do join us you will receive a limited addition badge; a membership card and you will also be added to the clubs Priority Group database.
Our next project is to raise funding for a new accessible entrance to the club shop/reception, a Sensory room and accessible rest area seating in all refreshment areas around the ground. As stated above, you don’t have to have a disability to join our association so please join us and help us to reach our target this year of 150 members. Our 150th member will receive a bottle of bubbly.
If you’ve not yet renewed you membership please approach Martin on match days to renew or email us to renew via a bank transfer please email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
We would like to thank everyone who has renewed; joined or contributed towards our cause and please feel free to visit us on Facebook, search for Exeter City Disabled Supporters Association.
