Just because there's nothing else to do, I've looked up to see how crowdfunding for Scottish teams is going. There may be others that I didn't see, largest donations may not be accurate as some as donations don't specify the amount. Albion Rovers
Average donation £50.38
Running Total £6,550 of £7,500
Largest donation £1,300 N.B The substantial donation from the Albion Rovers Supporters' Trust was made directly to the club and isn't included in the above figures.
Dumbarton £74.29 £12,703 of £25,000 £1,000 x2 Raith Rovers £60.77 £40,540 of £50,000 £5,000 Elgin City £45.92 £3,215 of £25,000 £1000 Partick Thistle £62.86 £22,000 of £20,000 £5,000 Edinburgh City £85.11 £4,000 of £10,000 £1,000
Stirling Albion £72.79 £23,003 of £10,000 £5,000 East Stirling £40.56 £730 of £10,000 £100 x2
Great info Roy on the various just giving amounts by club. Not sure as to the reasons why Stirling have done so well but would hazard a guess at the fact that they are a community/fan owned club but that is only my opinion.
Our amount is brilliant for a club our size. It would be great to get to the target of 7500 pounds.
Normally very wary of paying anything online, but even I have now chipped in. I know there are probably a lot more worthy causes around right now, but it would be a huge blow if this crisis threatened (as it might) our club's existence.

Indeed there are many worthy causes about and my other favourite www.willowsanimals.com need a few quid to tide them over, so that they can look after their animals now and continue to assist humans once the crisis has passed.
The total for Rovers stands at £6980, £520 short of the revised target. It seems that pretty much everyone who would donate have done so already. Fingers crossed we’ll make the target but even if we don’t it’s gone as well or better than we could expect.
