Let's get Mulled Wine Marie to the final

We read Marie's post on the other thread saying that flights from Southern Italy are too expensive for her to attend but bless her she was willing to buy tkts for others to attend.
I thought....
Why not a Crowd Funding exercise to get her flight costs paid.???

She has been an iconic part of L I support for all of the MadStad days (probably longer) but is now only a rare visitor due to her retirement location. Be great for her to be there, see us promoted and say goodbye to BigBob in person. I'm sure Kendo, Dec and Dodge would be pleased to see her again.

What's the cost Marie????, - we will start the ball rolling with pledging 25.
If we get enough funds for her to travel we can keep it simple and meet Marie in the hotel before the match and hand over our pledges.
Is this a daft idea?, over to you fellow supporters for your thoughts.

Hi Marie, have you got your dates right?
It's midweek flights you want, the game is on Wednesday night unless you are going to be hungover until the weekend !

Wow this is L I Supporters showing their true colours!
We're up to to 260 in less than 8 hours.
Can we reach our target soon before the flight costs go up?

DaveandEl - are you doing this via crowdfunding? Is it set up? Worked a treat when we raised a grand for a Mexican mariachi band for Grimsby's last Away match of the season

Marie,
Look how you are thought of by your fellow L I friends.
We are up to 435 !!!!!
It's up to you now, - are you coming ?, may even get enough for a night in the Hilton before you fly back.

We await your decision

Hi HMRH,
I am an absolute muppet when it comes to technology.
I used the word 'crowd funding' as I knew it would mean something to all you lot. Haven't a clue as to the practicalities of it hence suggesting in my opening thread 'meeting in the hotel to hand over our pledges'.
If Marie agrees to come then more than happy to hand over collection/transfer of funds to one of you to administer

Here's a suggestion.

why doesn't Marie set up a page in [www.justgiving.com] ?
Any excess from her costs could be then donated to a charity of her choosing, e.g. Gt. Ormond St. children's hospital or whatever.

I'm sure the donations from here will well exceed her costs. Bank holiday travel or not.

I don't think you can set up a page on justgiving for an individual person, it has to be a registered charity. Also using websites like that means they take a cut out of the total raised, just saying

If Marie still has a UK bank account we can all simply transfer the monies directly then she can either transfer into her Euro account or buy the tickets in the UK and pay from that account. :-)

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN

THANK YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH FOR YOUR KINDNESS. Having gone through all scenarios - finding cover down here for arrivals etc and then leaving Reggio via Rome to London arriving 19.10 Tuesday - but I would have to leave on the 06.30 flight from Heathrow - which would mean getting the coach from Reading to Heathrow after the match and staying in the airport for a 05.00 check-in...............

and when added together airfare/coach/hotel etc - I am sorry but is impossible...............

but it was a wonderful and kind thought..................god bless x

Hi Marie,

As the originator of this post we are naturally disappointed that you wil not be there in person but fully respect your decision due to the sheer logistics of the travel.

Ps to all who made pledges, thanks, it showed the L I support network is alive and well.

Hopefully we will see MWM at Twickers Double Header on Sept 2nd !!
