The Queen of the South Thread

Anyone know much The Tanner fund has raised so far? 

No a lot a don’t think it’s really taken off like it was hoped it would but am not in the know just from the outside looking in it doesn’t look like it has had the effect so far it has had at other clubs which is poor.

If we look at four home games we have left and average attendance this is basically the money our club is missing out on. If someone who has an inkling of what the total amount for these games would have brought in could we organise fundraising for this amount via the Internet and official website?

What about a campaign 'A pound for Queens' for everyone in Dumfries to give a pound or on behalf of their families for kids etc. If this happened that would be around 49K

You only have to look at the shop shelves in the town to appreciate how selfish people are. I'm skeptical they'd find it in their selfish hearts to chip in to help a football club.

Holding doors open, etc,  doesn't cost any money,  ask people for money and they may not be so kind.  The story doesn't have any relevance to the possibility of townsfolk helping the Club.

The reality is the majority of Dumfries don't care about QoS in 'peace time'. They certainly aren't going to care in the middle of a pandemic.

Now that there will be no Queens football for the foreseeable future, can we hope for the highlights (there may not be many!) of the Queens matches at home to Inverness on the 29th October 2019 and the home match against Dundee on the 22nd February 2020? Need something to watch (however grim!) during the upcoming isolation!

You could all maybe buy some weekly draw tickets to help the club out during these tough times.

Has there been any official word from the Club that they are looking for outside income/donations during the enforced shutdown  or is it just being assumed that they do because other clubs are struggling financially. There have been a few excellent suggestions of ways of giving cash but it doesn't seem to be happening in any organised fashion. I think if the club/SLO's set up an official funding page it may encourage fans to help out.  Apologies if such a thing exists and has passed me by but I don't subscribe to many social media platforms.

They're not hard to find.
