09 Dec 2012 - VSC News: Ian Duerden

Some of you will be aware that one of the Rovers legends from the Conference years, Ian Duerden, is currently in the process of setting up a foundation for his son Oliver, who has an extremely rare genetic disorder. The VSC have invited Ian and his family to join us for a match in the future and they have accepted this offer, and we will release further details of this closer to the date. On the day we will be looking to increase awareness of Oliver's condition and raise some much needed funds for his foundation. I'm sure you will all agree this is an excellent cause and I know Ian will have your full support on the day.

We are also looking to set up a partnership with the Rovers official charity this season, Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, which should hopefully see some of the families there attend a Rovers match in the future.

That is just a brief outline of some of the things we are currently trying to do in increasing our work in the community, something we think the VSC may have slipped away from in recent years. We are essentially a Community Trust and it is important we are seen as this, rather than just as an extension of the Football Club. If you can think of anyone who might benefit from a great day out at the Rovers, or have any other ideas on how the VSC can increase our presence in the Community, then please feel free to email with your suggestions.

Finally, I'd just like to point out that we cannot do any of this without our members. If you have not already done so, please consider becoming a member of the VSC by clicking on the Join VSC link at the top. You will not only be becoming part of an organisation that is a significant shareholder in the club you support, you will also be helping us to serve the local community.
