    Click here to support CCFC Season Tickets organised by Mild-mannered Janitor

    If you know somebody and want to nominate them to receive the tickets, you can do so here: SkyBluesTalk Helping Fellow Fans Nomination


    Last year, there were so many of you from SBT that made a tremendous difference to individuals and their children go to watch us come so close to making the play offs and enjoying some amazing games and a few we could all easily forget but I know from the feedback of those that we helped, regardless of the result or how we played, we created moments of happiness for mother’s, fathers, sons and daughters that wouldn’t have been achieved without your kindness.

    It started with me being lucky enough to have some pennies from a work bonus to directly help out a family have their first ever ticket and then we raised enough for over 6 sets of season tickets and a sizeable donation to the family zone for them to provide the facilities on match day.

    I know our situation as a club is different but if I set it up again, would you consider donating? If there is an appetite to do so then I will set up a funding site, ask people to nominate via here, ask the club if they will help again with a free season ticket for an Adult + Child again and then use the wise people of here to help choose and provide individuals with the opportunity to have a ST when they perhaps wouldn’t have had before.
    Hopefully a few of you read the quotes last year and some more recently, regardless of our circumstances, helping out individuals enjoy time together on match day with a parent/guardian or friend is something we have all enjoyed and made us smile over the years so please let me know and if good, I will start the ball rolling.

    A yes or like the post and if we have enough, will sort this week.

    Some of the quotes from last year:

    "Ah that's the best news we've had in a while, we're so grateful. I told my eldest the news this morning and he was so excited, jumping around the room. He also said ''tell the people I said thank you"

    And yes it's great that other fans have done this, it really does show that there's good people out there. I know me and my son's are very thankful for it, along with anyone else you may be helping"

    "Oh wow, thank you so much, you really have no idea how much this means to me and my boys. We're absolutely elated, thank you"

    "x was over the moon with the news. He was really happy. His daughter was chuffed to bits and MY son was happy too as he now has his cousin going to games with us. A whole host of happy people."

    "Thank you so much. We should all be really proud of other CCFC fans. Great bunch."


    Thank You
    MMJ

    Great idea,but think the travelling could be a problem for someone short of cash.
    If we get back home, then by all means make it an annual thing.

    Great stuff, MMJ. You kindly offered me one last year as I'd been ill, but despite hardly working I managed to still get a ticket for my lad and I. I'll gladly chip in again this year if it means helping some fellow fans out. Tweet it too. Let's get this out there.

    Is this the thread where we all pay for MMJ's family to get season tickets again under the pretence of hardship? I'm in again if ony for the sheer genius of scamming us once more. We'll played sir, great back story ;) :)

    Happy to donate.

    Is there some kind of travel card/coach thing that could be bundled in considering the tickets are cheaper this year?

    Happy to contribute again - I’ll probably not get a season ticket next season due to cost but good to help out other fans

    Initial sentiment positive and I do understand travel may be an issue on cost but let’s see what we can do, I’ll aim to set up tomorrow then and then post the link and then message Sheila/David B about them about a ticket from the club.

    Let’s hope we can help a few families out again.
    Thank you

    I love this idea. Would be happy to promote this through the pod and will donate personally. Will this be going round social media too for people (like me) who don't really come on here all that much?

    No issues donating again. Share the concerns of others regarding transport, especially when the recipients of the tickets are not particularly flush. Packages would potentially have to include transport, but everyone's location/situation is going to be different.

    Keep us posted.

    Yes happy to contribute again although I agree this scenario is somewhat more complex this year with the requirement to get to SA every other week

    Link now set up and also put on first post so people can find it easily, if you can all share on Facebook, twitter, email and any other ,ethos possible then let’s see what we can do.

    Click here to support CCFC Season Tickets organised by Mild-mannered Janitor

    I put a high target in place as last year was phenomenal after we raised enough for tickets within the first few days.

    Thank you all, truly very special people.

    We do, so will start asking for that now as well, just wanted to raise some funds first before we have any recipeients, would hate to have nominations and no money.

    Link updated, my lack of skills failed at the first hurdle
