Vanarama Big Day Out 1

Be Part Of The BIG Day Out – And Make Money For The Shots!

Throughout February, Shots fans can secure their place at the Vanarama BIG Day Out – and earn money for the Club at the same time.

Aldershot Town will keep all proceeds from the purchase of discounted vouchers from the Club office, which guarantees supporters a ticket for the Vanarama BIG Day Out featuring the Conference Promotion Final at Wembley Stadium connected by EE on Sunday 17 May.

Each voucher, costing just £10 for adults and £5 for children, is redeemable at no extra cost, as part of an innovative new way to celebrate the culmination of nine months of thrilling Vanarama Conference action with an electric party atmosphere for all football fans.

In addition to these massive reductions, there will also be competitions and other opportunities to win tickets through Vanarama and EE, whilst at Wembley there will be pre-match entertainment for all the family – including one of the country’s biggest music artists – and a major chance for one fan to win money, not only for themselves but also their own Conference Club.

Further updates will be provided throughout the season as the race to the Football League, at the top of the Vanarama Conference, really hots up. With a family of four able to save £86 just by being first in the queue for a voucher, can you afford to miss out?

Early Bird Vouchers are on sale NOW but must be purchased by Friday 13 March, from the Club Office at the Electrical Services Stadium on the High Street. The office is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am – 4.30pm (closed 1-2pm), from 11am – 2.45pm for a Saturday home match, and until 7.30pm for a midweek home match.

Voucher numbers are limited, so buy now to make sure you don’t miss out on the best deal ever for a fabulous Venue of Legends experience. Wembley awaits you!

Shots Dig Charity Challenge

Two Shots legends supported another great community fundraising event in aid of The Source Young People’s Charity on Friday.

Commercial Manager Mark Butler and Head Groundsman Andy Nunn accepted Millgrove Construction’s Digger Challenge with varying success, but still helped to raise money for The Source at Smith Dorrien House on Queens Avenue, the HQ of Grainger PLC’s new Wellesley development of Aldershot Garrison.

The Challenge was to pick up as many tennis balls as possible in three minutes, using a spoon attached to the bucket of one of CJ Charlton Plant Hire’s on-site mini-diggers.

An expectant crowd gathered to watch the fiercely-competitive challenge. Butler went first and managed just three in 180 seconds, but it was still enough to defeat the former Shots left-back, who could only scoop two. Both, though, paled in comparison to a resident ‘professional’ who scooped 15 in his allotted time.

Butler admitted: “I’ve never operated one of these machines in my life and was quite nervous with everybody watching! I had no idea what I was doing really but it was great fun, and a lovely way to help raise money for one of our key local charities. It’s exciting to see all of these organisations working together to make a difference in our town, and I’m very proud that Aldershot Town are at the heart of this work.”

“All of the money raised here goes straight back into helping the lives of young people in the local area,” said The Source Chief Executive Adam Stacey. “It’s been lots of fun but their efforts have been absolutely superb. It’s fantastic to have so many members of our local community coming together over their lunch break to do something which gives so much back to that community.

“The Source is in a really healthy position at the moment and the Youth Café continues to be really busy. We’ve recently had new signage delivered by another of our local partners, Reade Signs, giving us professional signage for the first time in the ten years that we have been here. It all makes a massive difference and all of our clients really appreciate the help that everybody is giving.”

Aldershot Town thanks Millgrove Construction, Moore Transport Ltd and CJ Charlton Plant Hire for their assistance.
