Newcastle fans raised 20k for a local foodbank by refusing to pay the PPV (pay per view) money and instead directing their cash to local foodbanks. I'm starting this thread to gauge interest in a similar effort for our games going forward. If there is enough we could get it going on twitter, get a few major palace fan accounts on board, etc.

With a Covid winter drawing in I'm sure South London foodbanks could do with the cash, and the prem certainly doesn't need any more.

Anyone interested?

No brainer for me. Rather than pay any more to watch no shots on goal and our star player looking very disinterested in the last two games...

We could raise money for the National Foodbank organisation the Trussell Trust.

They have a local branch in Croydon

Unit 5
46 Pilton Estate
Pitlake
Croydon
CR0 3RA

We would then be donating for a worthy cause and I am sure we could get some worthwhile exposure and decent press coverage out of it as well.
I am sure they could organise a dedicated just giving page for us and maybe BBS would join in as well to make it a joint effort?
I have left a message for their supporter care team to ring me but would need assistance from a MOD if we wish to take this further, any thoughts?

Thanks to everyone for replying. I reckon might be able to do something special here, especially if we can get it going for all the palace matches on PPV

Agree re particular foodbank, thanks to Pierre for sourcing that.

I think we should ideally be aiming to get a dedicated giving page but not worry too much if we don't get one - if we don't hear anything back by lunch tomorrow I think we should just crack on, using their existing online donor page.

Agree would be great idea to get BBS/HOL involved via their mods or admins - has anyone contacted them? (/Mods if you're reading this please reply!!) If not I'm happy to when I get off the train.

Other people we could spam until they promote us (probably after we launch, haven't had much luck so far) (if anyone's got any names to this list please say):

Palace YouTubers
Homesdale fanatics
Fyp
Croydon area mps - incl Steve reed
Fans for foodbanks
Hltco

Beyond that we can obviously tell our mates, persuade them to tell others and post about it in any relevant group chats.

Would love to hear thoughts on/alternatives to any of this.

Let us know if/when they come back to you. It can then be run past the Webmaster for approval.
It would be better if they can set up the page so that no Mods or members are involved to avoid any comeback on individuals.
Once this is sorted, it can then be thrown out to the BBS and any other fan sites.

Becky do you know if, failing them setting up a specific page, we would be able to use their standard page? I believe available via here [Link]

No reason why not, except there would be no way to trace how much this has raised from Hol/BBS/Palace fans if people wanted to know.

Love the idea.

Alternatively Id be interested in a Food W@nk.
Wed use food items like big melons, toss over them and donate money to charity as we go. Could catch on

Now we all know where all the free supermarket bags went. You've been waiting for a moment like this Tom, you sly(if slightly perverted) old dog.

Last time something similar happened on the HOL, was back in the late 90's when a certain MOD of the time bought all the butter around, put it to good use mind, can you follow in such auspicious company?

Tom really doesn't miss a trick.. or rather miss a w***.

But anyway, was a fantastic idea. Very community minded. Just to clarify, I'm talking about the food bank, not food w*** idea!
