    I know it's been mentioned on here but I thought worth providing an update.

    Last Sunday we announced & launched a Crowdfunder to get enough working capital together to allow us to create a feature length documentary celebrating the achievements of the Reds in the 90s. In little over 7 days, we've raised just shy of £7,500 when our initial target was £5,000. Amazing & thanks to everyone who has supported on here so far.

    Current projections are that when we factor in purchasing licenses for use of EFL & PL goals & footage that we're gonna need somewhere close to £20,000 to make it happen to the standard we want. If you can spare us £20 & want to see the film happen we'd love if you could pledge:

    www.crowdfunder.co.uk/graftagency

    We also have some VIP packages available that include your name being on the film credits & invites to the Premiere that we'll hold in the Town Centre in Spring 2018. Gimme a nudge at [email protected] if you want to have a natter about that.

    Thanks again for the kind words & offers of help so far - we can't wait to do such an incredible story justice.

    Cheers x

    I'll donate towards the end of the month when I'm over my £300 MOT bill.

    I love Neil Redfearn.

    Have you looked into Arts Council funding? I know you've probably got a whole load of experience,and I'm not even sure what they have available nowadays, but I used to work for a different lottery distributor so if you need anyone to look over or prepare any applications then I'd be happy to help. Just a thought.

    Great shout. I got one for the Country Music Club I ran with some other guys. Before we got the grant we were booking bands
    around the £350 mark. If we made a loss we had to cover it out of our own pockets ( this was around 1982 by the way).
    Someone from the Arts Council heard me on Radio Hallam ( now Hallam FM) talking about the bands we were bringing in
    and how it was giving Doncaster's Country Music fraternity an opportunity they wouldn't normally get because the other Country Clubs and pubs were showcasing local bands. A representative from the AC got in touch and suggested we apply
    for a grant.

    We applied and they subsequently agreed to underwrite our loss for our quarterly shows to the tune of £2k per concert.
    We upped the ante and brought some established American acts like Tompall Glaser, Joe Sun, RCA recording artist
    Steve Young , Wendell Adkins and a guy who was No 1 on the Billboard chart when he came over Dan Seals to the Club.

    The cash safety net meant we could put a top U.K. support band on with the headliner which meant we could charge more
    to cover our outlay.If you can put a good enough case together we found the Arts Council to be extremely supportive.
