What’s it all about? - The football club has had an Iseki tractor and aerator on a lease for four years via Ernest Doe. The lease came to the end of its life on 30th March and we were due to replace the equipment with a new tractor and aerator but the Covid 19 virus came along and the finance company stopped the pre-arranged deal from proceeding. This was totally out of our control at the football club and nobody could have foreseen this coming when the lease arrangements were put in place.
I approached the lottery to ask if there would be any possibility of a contribution towards the cost of buying the tractor which we had previously had on finance back from Ernest doe, the support I received from the lottery committee was simply amazing! I negotiated a really good deal with Ernest Doe on the tractor and the committee accepted and supported what was on the table. From the minute I asked for help to the time we received the tractor back at the stadium was just 36 hours.
Thank you for your continued support stay safe & well.
