Action group appeal smashes target

Filed: Monday, 5th February 2018
By: Staff Writer

The Real West Ham Fans Action Group justgiving fundraiser has reached its 20,000 target - just four days after going live.

The strength of depth of anti-Board feeling amongst West Ham supporters has been demonstrated by response to the appeal fund, which smashed through its target figure at the weekend - just four days after the campaign began.

And at time of writing, the appeal had topped 24,000 - with almost 1,500 supporters having contributed financially to the group's appeal for donations.

The figure raised by the RWHFAG after just six days

RWHFAG have since announced that they are planning to protest against the Board on 10 March. The short walk from Stratford to the Olympic Stadium is expected to be supported by several thousand West Ham supporters of all ages.

The peaceful march is being organised in conjunction with the Metropolitan Police, with the safety of those expected to attend paramount. In addition to a Police presence, Boleyn Ground stewards - many of whom lost their jobs when the club moved from Upton Park - are being asked to marshall the event.

It has also been confirmed that any funds remaining after the march has taken place will be redirected towards Isla's Fund.
