Two years ago, Les Hutchison made a generous offer to match every £1 raised through the Well Society by reducing the loan balance due to him by the club up to a maximum of £500,000.
This was originally for a one year period, before being extended for a further year. Motherwell fans responded in tremendous fashion, raising close to £400,000 over the last two years through pledges, donations, share sales and other fundraising events and initiatives.
Mr Hutchison has now generously offered to keep the “Double Your Money” offer open until the end of May 2019, giving us a real chance of hitting that original target and raising £500,000.
“The gesture from Les Hutchison to further extend his offer of Double Your Money to the end of the season is a fantastic one and appreciated by all at the Well Society,” Well Society co-chairman Douglas Dickie said.
“It is a fantastic boost to both the Well Society and in turn our football club. This allows us the chance to take advantage of his original offer of match funding our fundraising to a maximum of £500,000.
“I thank all members who have helped us get so close to this target over a two year period. We are currently standing at just under £400,000 and ask for their continued support to achieve our target and beyond. “
Here is how you can help the Well Society reach its target:
Join the Well Society. If you haven’t yet done so you can join us today from just £5 per month.
Pledge to the Well Society. If you are an existing member but aren’t pledging monthly, you can do so today.
Increase your pledge. Pledging members can increase their pledge to help even more.
Make a one-off donation. If you don’t want to make a monthly commitment, you can make an annual or one-off payment to contribute to the Well Society.
