Port Vale fans have raised more than £8,000 towards completing the Lorne Street Stand, just ten days after they began their appeal.
More than 200 supporters have already donated to the supporter’s club’s gofundme page which has been set up to raise funds towards creating a concourse in the unfinished part of the Lorne Street Stand.
Money raised will be given to the club to help towards estimated costs of more than £100,000 of building a concourse behind the unfinished part of the stand.
The owners will be putting seats into that side of the stand in time for the Robbie Williams charity concert on June 20. But while they don’t need a concourse for that event, one would be required to regularly open that half of the stand for football games.
The Lorne Street Stand was opened twenty years ago but the half of the stand closest to the Hamil end has remained unfinished.
The Supporters’ Club voted overwhelmingly at their last meeting to fund-raise for a concourse. They will be holding a bucket collection at the ground at this Saturday’s home game with Crawley.
Supporters’ Club chairman Mark Porter said: “It’s an amazing response. We represent a broad church of fans and they have voted unanimously to support this campaign.
“We are looking for volunteers to help us for Saturday’s collection. If anyone can, that would be a massive help.”
