It’s well known that as a Shots Trust member, you have the all-important ability to have YOUR say on what the Trust does or doesn’t do, and vote on all key issues arising at our Annual General Meeting, but….. did you know that membership also gives a range of benefits?
In addition to existing benefits such as discount on any Trust-operated away travel once the season gets under way, and the chance to vote for the Player of the Month, we have negotiated some additional benefits for Trust members:
- 10% discount on food between Tuesday and Thursday, and Sunday at Thai Lotus Land, Farnham*
- The Alexander Hotel and pub in Aldershot will donate 5p from every pint purchased by a Trust member, to the Sunday League Team *;
- The Brewers Fayre will offer Trust members 2 main courses for £8.99, Monday to Friday between 12:00 noon – 6pm*;
- The opportunity to meet the players of the Sunday League Team;
- The opportunity for 12 year olds and above to have a training session with the Sunday League Team.
(*on production of a valid membership card).
Landlords of the Alexandra (known by its regulars as The Alex), Holly Dowling and Mickey Burke, with Tommy Anderson and players Jack Emanuel and Mitchell Elliott.
Speaking about the new partnership, Shots Trust and Aldershot Supporters Trust FC Chairman Tommy Anderson said: “We’re really pleased to announce this new initiative with the Alexandra Pub, and I look forward to working with landlords Holly and Mickey. They have been very supportive to our newly set up football team. The scheme they have set up for us (to donate 5p for every pint purchased by a Trust member) is a vital way to raise extra funds, both for the Club and for the team. There are also donation boxes at both ends of the bar for all to use to support the football team. On behalf of everyone associated with Aldershot Supporters Trust FC, we thank them very much!
Pubs are a significant and important focal point for communities and they need our support if they are to survive in the current climate. I therefore urge all Trust members, Shots fans and the Aldershot community to support the Alex and in turn, help them to support us!”
Thai Lotus Land, East Street, Farnham
Trust Secretary, Laura Smart, said: “As regular visitors to Thai Lotus Land, I and my partner (and fellow Shots Trust Board member) Michael Foster can highly recommend it!! The food is simply gorgeous and the team are both friendly and very accommodating for dietary needs. I’ll be using the 10% discount immediately…….”
We urge all Trust supporters to start taking advantage of the benefits now on offer; we are continuing to seek out more discounts at local stores and restaurants and will keep you posted!
