Carlton Town supporters help keep the lights on at Stoke Lane as fundraising tops £6k

Calling all Millers ... your help is still needed


Fundraising to help a local football club rocked by a shockingly high electric bill has hit the £6,000 mark.

Carlton Town revealed last month that after submitting a meter reading, they received a bill for a whopping £8714.03 (including VAT).

A fundraising campaign was then launched to help find the funds to pay off the debt, with owners and fans all reaching into their pockets.

The club have now confirmed on their website that fundraising has passed the £6,000 mark.

Mick Garton and Barry North started the fund with £1,000 each closely followed by Gilbert Wealth £500 and Russell Scanlan £500.

This was followed by the club raising £500 on a football number card, an anonymous donation of £250 and another donation of £250 from Simon Rood.

Lynms the funeral directors have contributed £300 as well as a £500 donation from a branch of the Nottingham Forest Supporters Club.

Kelly Mitchell also set up a Go fund me page which has now raised £840 of the £1,000 target and donations can be made here

Next up in the fund raising campaign is a quiz night at the William Gunn on June 5 and another football card.
