Latest ECDSA news 11/09/18
Once again we’re extremely grateful to Exeter City FC for allowing us to have a bucket collection at the Lincoln City match on 1st September, 2018.
For several seasons now this has helped us greatly in boosting our funds towards improving facilities at St James Park for supporters with disabilities.
Through the generosity of fans we raised a fantastic amount of £260.12
This season alone we’re supporting a number of projects around St James Park including End of Seat Hand Rails for the IP Office stand, TV screens for the new stand to assist those who cannot hear the tannoy announcements, equipment for the new Changing Places Room and Safety Netting to protect those in the accessible bays at the front of the Big Bank stand from flying balls when players are warming up before games.
We’ll be handing Exeter City FC £4,000 or more this season alone and we’re only able to hand this amount over due to years of fundraising through Christmas draws and collections. We’ve still been doing stuff for the club over the years but we’ve also been saving to allow us to help with bigger amounts when called upon.
