Title: Altrincham FC-inspired Face masks - Christie's fundraiser.
Post by: KingsOfTheGolfRoad on May 22, 2020, 09:00:42 PM
Evening all, we recognise the need right now for a good quality facemask, but didn't feel right to profit on something important - so all profits from our new masks will be going direct to Christie's (plus Andrew has kindly offered to chuck in 1 extra in per mask.).

They're priced at 6.50 each and we'll be placing our final order next Friday at 10pm. They'll take around a week to 10 days to arrive plus the shipping to you.

If you'd like to order here from our webshop here:

Thanks to those who've ordered already!

These look great & a very good idea to explain exactly where funds raised are going.

Well done KOTGR lads.

Thanks, Brian.

EDIT: We've 93 now sold. I'd be fantastic to hit 120.

The more we sell, the cheaper the unit cost and the more we donate, bringing us to around 380-400 donations (after mask, postage, the fee the website charges on each order)

In order to get these to people who've kindly pre-ordered so quickly, we're going to place order 1 tonight, with a 2nd order next week after payday.

108 sold which is brilliant. Thank you so much to those that bought their masks.

Would be great to hit 150.

Could I have one  of each please.
 I can pick up and pay at the same time.
If you need the money beforehand let me know.

I'd like to buy one red one and one black one plus one of the badges. I have, however, very little computer literacy. Is there a phone number I can ring and pay by card? And have them posted to me? Living just outside Chester, I can't come to pick them up. Hope you can help. Also do we still do baby grows as I've just become a grandpa again for the 12&13 time (twins) and would like to buy a couple of these. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hi B4D, if you could pay online via the webshop that would be best (helps track orders) but if you're unable to pay by card, we'll arrange a local drop and pick up the cash at the same time.

Hi Saughall Robin, unfortunately we're not the club therefore order can't be taken over the phone, if you're able to do a Bank Transfer we can send details for this?

Regarding Baby grows; Kings never sold them, but maybe speak to the club directly, as it's something they may stock.

Thanks to both of you! I did say I was not computer literate and I've not got on-line banking either. If would accept cheques I'd be happy to do it that way? If that is OK, please Pm me with your address details and who to make it payable to. Thanks very much! 😉

Thanks JD. The twins are doing well but as I'm in the high risk category I can't see them for a while! 😉

Many Thanks. I've got that and have replied asking for details of who I make it payable to and to ask whether you have any Robin badges available too.

They're in production cycle now. We've been provisionally told they'll be dispatched to us at the end of next week, so looking mind-end of the second week of June for us to have them.

Then we'll get them straight out.

We've sold way over 200 masks now - and completely sold out red. If you'd like a black one, be sure to grab one this weekend as we're on track for those to be sold out too.

All masks now sold out  ;D

Thank you to all that supported us buying pins/hats/prints whilst buying a mask for The Christie.

1. Masks should arrive to us in Altrincham by Thursday
2. We will post photos on here and our social channels of the masks.
3. In order to get them to you as quick as possible, after safely packaging them, we will deliver ourselves on Thursday evening and Friday evening those locally and posting the remaining on Friday to those further afield on.
4. Any questions please contact us, not the club as they won't be able to answer any questions.

Thank you for the delivery of my face masks.

You're very welcome. If the mask is too lose, you can either cut the cords shorter or tied at the back of your head.

Worn my mask to supermarket tonight, and it feels much better than the others I've had previously.

Find what? Facemasks? They were a pre-order product via Kings of the golf road (not the club) shop, and have sold out I'm afraid Harold.

All masks - even the ones that went to the wrong city (tanks Royal Mail) should have arrived and be with people.

Please drop us a DM if you haven't received yours.
