The Pitch In campaign has just passed the £9000 mark, meaning that we are 25% of the way towards the £36,000 we set ourselves as our contribution to the total.

The £9000 figure excludes the money we raised on the Santa's Sleigh Ride the other day, and there are other sums that should be with us soon.

Meanwhile, our application to set up a charity to own and manage the new pitch has been filed, applications to major grant awarding bodies are starting to be submitted, and local councillors have a put in a bid to PKC for the major chunk of the funding. Unfortunately, a decision from the council is likely to be delayed for some months because of issues at Holyrood.

Keep up the good work, and if anyone has good ideas for raising more money, let us know.
