Two days to go!

Two days to go!

Sunday night deadline for Boost the Budget

The deadline to contribute to Boost the Budget is fast approaching -- the deadline is midnight on Sunday.

Already, a fantastic amount of over £114k has been raised (as of Friday evening) and it would be great to hit £120k and beyond by the deadline. There is no limit as to how much is raised.

Manager Alun Armstrong said in his netcafe on Thursday that the support has been "phenomenal"


What do you make of Darlington fans raising over £100,000 in Boost the Budget for the second successive year?

In one word Phenomenal!!!!  I’ll be honest -- we were really worried this year especially with the COVID-19 pandemic but you lot have blown me away with how much you have raised. It makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck when I think about it but then realise it’s my job to spend it wisely which brings its own pressure but you can be assured you’ll get value for money and hopefully a few surprises. Please continue to contribute over the next few days until BTB closes on Sunday, because the more that is contributed, the stronger we can be.

And this is what he said on BBC Tees earlier in the week:




DJ was full of praise for the fans in his Zoom interview earlier in the week:



So, as it's payday weekend for some, why not contribute to Boost the Budget for season 2020-21? It can be any figure, large or small.
