New stand from the riverside

Stand up for the Stones

Maidstone United have launched Stand up for the Stones – a new fundraising campaign to support the latest round of development at the Gallagher Stadium.

The scheme – announced on the website last week – has already attracted more than £1,000 in pledges.

Supporters are invited to contribute towards the new terraced stand that will be built at the north end of the ground during the season.

A one-off donation can be made via the website – www.maidstoneunited.co.uk/standupforthestones – or at the club office on weekdays between 09:30 and 16:00.

There is also the opportunity to make a contribution on a monthly basis via PayPal or a standing order with your bank or building society.

Anyone who donates £5 or more will receive a special campaign pin badge. Supporters pledging £20 will have the opportunity to be part of a photo montage and contributions of £50 will be recognised on an honours board.

Club chief executive Bill Williams said: “The club are blessed to have owners like Terry and Oliver. Under their stewardship, the club have enjoyed success on an unprecedented scale and our elevation to the National League brings its own challenges.

“We are 100% committed to achieving off the pitch, what Jay and the players have on it. Since we announced Stand up for the Stones, there have been calls and emails from people wanting to donate and that’s very heartening to know there’s that support from our fans and the wider community.

“Thank you to everyone who’s pledged so far and those who’ve indicated they will. Let’s see if we can hit this £50,000 target in the coming months and get the terracing named The Fans’ Stand.”

A supporter-led fundraising campaign – Bring The Stones Home – raised £52,000 in the months leading up to the opening of the Gallagher Stadium in July 2012.
