A letter of thanks...

13 October 2015

Club receive message from widow of Richard Hawcroft.

Doncaster Rovers were the honoured recipients of a letter from the widow of Richard Hawcroft; the amateur footballer who recently passed away unexpectedly.

A minute’s applause on the 8th minute of the Rovers v Barnsley game was impeccably received while the supporters from both clubs helped to raise in excess of £520 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

“Hi Clare,

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything that everybody did for my daughter and I on Saturday.

The whole experience was so well organised and we both had a great day!

Everybody we came into contact with went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
The minute’s applause was extremely emotional and overwhelming - but to everyone involved in making that happen, I can’t thank them enough. I feel honoured that so much effort has gone in by so many people for my amazing husband.
I trust that you will pass on my thanks to anyone and everyone involved - yourself, Mary, Ryan and the 2 great guys that looked after us throughout the tour.

Andy also needs a special mention because without him nothing would have happened. I am sure however that everyone knows the close friendship that they had.
With so many thanks,
Louise Hawcroft”

Andy Butler and DRFC club staff should like  to express their thanks to the members of the Black Bank supporters who, on the day, gave their voluntary service to organising and carrying out the bucket collection in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

To raise over £500 at one collection has been a magnificent effort, and the fans who make up the Black Bank have once again displayed their enthusiasm and commitment to helping the club with this charitable gesture.

For those fans coming to this weekends game against Bradford we are encouraging you to donate a portion of the savings on ticket prices to the game’s chosen charity of Doncaster hero Ben Parkinson, Pilgrim Bandits.
