The Robins' Saturday Yankee
15 July 2016
The Saturday Yankee fundraising initiative has been in operation at Altrincham Football Club for nearly twenty years but, in recent times, with a lack of canvassers, the number of members has dwindled to a point where it has become uneconomic to run. The Saturday Yankee will therefore cease to operate from 31 August 2016 but will continue to operate normally until then.
Consequently, Altrincham FC invites all existing participants in the Saturday Yankee and, indeed, all supporters of the Football Club, to help to raise funds for the Club by joining the Monthly Draw which already operates at the Club.
The Monthly Draw takes place at the first game of every month and is broadcast, live, on Radio Robins. The results are also published on this website. At present, there are approximately 100 members and there are four cash prizes of £100, £50, £35 and £15 each month.
The Club has written to all those members of the Saturday Yankee who pay by direct debit or standing order inviting them to transfer their payments to the Monthly Draw. Other members will be contacted by their collecting agent in the as soon as possible.
If existing members of the Yankee scheme and new members join the Monthly Draw, it will enable the Club to increase the amount of prize money and the number of prizes available each month. Additionally, the Club plans to re-launch the Monthly Draw with additional prizes, which will include merchandise and hospitality.
Full details of the Monthly Draw scheme are here.
Please do join up to the Monthly Draw and help Altrincham Football Club!
