The Derek Blackham (Newyankee) Memorial Fund
« on September 13, 2016, 05:36:41 PM by silent majority »
The death of Derek seems to have touched a lot of people and as a long-standing Rovers supporter and VSC member a number of people have expressed their intention to contribute to something permanent. We are more than happy to act as intermediaries in this regard and Mick Ball, who is in touch with Derek's family, is talking to the club about various options to commemorate his life as a Rover.

To that end we are hosting a PayPal account so those who wish to contribute can do so. Its at this address here;

Should this thread be a sticky pinned to the top of the message board?

I don't think he was particularly into Pink Floyd.

This fund is to purchase a plaque for the memorial garden as per Donna's wish

Not really. If we overachieve then we can use the fund in other ways, if we don't then several people have committed to making up the difference.

Update please and I hope the club is doing the plaque thing for free as it would be nice to set up a trophy or summat for young players coming through ?
