Update on David

By now you will have heard of the terrible mugging on Barnet fan, David Dawson. There is an article about it here.

Some better news is that John Adkins (also known as Village) arranged a collection for David at the Halifax game on Saturday 10 January.

John would firstly like to thank the secretary at Halifax who gave permission at short notice to do the collection at the game.

The BFCSA-coach travellers donatated £80 on the way to the game and John collected a further £70 at the game.

On returning from Halifax a small party of people - including John, Ann Percy, Ken Springett and Trevor Cotterell - visited David where he recovering at home, and passed the £150 to him.

Apparantely David was in fine spirits - no doubt lifted by our 2-1 victory that afternoon - and is looking forward to coming back to watch the mighty Bees. Unfortunately his injuries are such that he is unsure when he can see his next game.

If you were not at the Halifax game but wish to donate something to David then we kindly ask you to send a cheque (no matter how small), payable to David Dawson, to the following address:

BFCSA Membership Secretary
9B Princes Avenue
Muswell Hill
N10 3LS

Thank you.

Please note that it was not possible to arrange a collection at the Dover game on 17 January as there is a collection due at the following week's game. This collection is for a charity that has helped another Barnet fan and the club do not like to have collections too close together as it can reduce the amounts collected. This collection has already been put off once before.

The BFCSA committee understands and accepts the club's position and urges our members to give equally generously to the collection at the Dagenham game.
