CAS Trust Bulletin, Update, Surveys etc

Fan Survey

Over the last few weeks CAS Trust volunteers have been interviewing fans for our survey to ascertain fan opinion regarding Supporters Trusts. To try to make the survey representative we primarily aimed at random walk by interviews at various points around the ground, once we had achieved an appropriate level of these kind of interviews we then published to the internet to expand the sample.

We will publish the results soon, but rest assured and overwhelming number of those who took part want a Supporters Trust for Charlton.

For anyone who hasn't yet taken this here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/surveybtn

One benefit of the survey is to increase our subscribers, by reaching a wider audience and really getting out amongst the fan base. We have so far managed to double our subscriber level to 300
plus.

So may I say a very big thank you, but also a huge welcome to all our new registered supporters of the Trust.

What can you do to help CAS Trust?

A lot of people say to me, what can we do to help? I know a lot of people struggle with geography and spare time, however there is a very helpful thing that all Trust Supporters can do right away.

Phone a Friend.. As part of our Target 1000 (subscribers)

campaign, we want every Trust Supporter to recruit at least one friend to the Trust, and then another one, and then another. If everyone does this our numbers will swell, it is an extremely effective way that you can help.

It's very easy to do this, they just need to email subscribe@castrust.org, with their details.

Forthcoming Attractions

Supporters Clubs

We have been trying to attend as many supporters events as possible, so we can be on hand and answer any questions fans have. Most recently Ken our liaison officer, spent time at the CADSA AGM and had a good number of helpful conversations with their members.

Eltham Addicks first meeting is this Thursday, and interim Trust board members will be in attendance, I think it's important we all support new groups like this, I believe Keith Peacock and Colin Powell are in attendance, The Woodcroft Club (formerly the Eltham Conservative Club) - 254 Eltham High Steet London SE9 - 1AA on Thursday 1st November starting at 7.45 pm.

North West Kent We are also hoping to attend this event on Thursday 22nd November at 7.30pm for 8.00pm start . The meeting will be held at a new venue which will be more accessible to all members across the North West Kent area – Dartford Football Club. Chris Powell will be in attendance.

The final date for your calendars is 5/12/12, To mark our formal launch CAS Trust intends to hold a Back to the Valley celebration event at Bartrams that night with special guests to be announced, further details will follow soon.

Last but not least, Trust volunteers should be doing a leaflet drop at this Saturday's match. If you want to help with any volunteering of any kind, please do drop me a line on chair@castrust.org. Currently we are looking for a Graphic designer to help wih flyers, and logos, etc

We also hope to publish a commemorative edition of our new Trust News newsletter in coming weeks, as well as launch our brand new website.

One last final, the Trust will hopefully be fully incorporate late this month, so watch this space. We should then be able to start accepting paid members (£5 for over 16s).

Thanks for your continued support

All the best
