The Trust has been informed that Max Burrow raised £1,202.10 for BBC Children in Need last Saturday, following his generous offer to pay for two supporters’ coaches to Morecambe’s second round FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury. Max, a Trust member from Hutton Roof, collected donations on the day from Morecambe supporters who wanted to travel to Shropshire to cheer on the Shrimps.
Bookings were facilitated through the Trust membership and Sardines On Tour (an Independent Morecambe FC travel group), with trustee Jimmy Goulding co-ordinating efforts from a Trust perspective. Those supporters who took up the offer formed a large proportion of the Shrimps’ 312 travelling support. The team received a great vocal backing throughout the game as they attempted to reach the FA Cup third round for the fourth time in the clubs history. Sadly it was not to be, as the home side progressed following a 2-0 victory courtesy of two first-half goals.
After the defeat at Shrewsbury, Max joked that he will have to take three coaches next time! A big thank you to Max and a well done to everybody who made a donation.
