  7. DADSC got a lovely surprise out of the blue yesterday!A Pars fan who wishes to remain anonymous donated £250 to the DADSC fund for 1st Floor access at EEP. And because DADSC is a registered charity, the donation is eligible for Gift Aid so HMRC will add a further £62.25 to its value next year.Yet again Pars fans are proving their generosity and willingness to help those less fortunate than themselves.Anyone who wants to donate any amount (large or small) to DADSC can do so at the Club Shop or by making an online payment to:Sort code – 80-06-55Account- 0602 8646Please mark the payment “DONATION”.

    Seven years ago

    Those were bad times, and emotions were raw. I will contend that NOBODY knew then (or perhaps even knows now) the full story. Those who were involved to any degree saw parts of what was happening but a lot went on behind closed doors that was unrecorded and is perhaps best forgotten. There were also a lot of accusations and personal abuse against individual Pars fans - sometimes deserved, usually not. With very few exceptions, everyone was doing what they thought at the time was best to save the football club from extinction, even if they differed in their methods. There were some bends and wrong turnings in the road and mistakes were made, but in the end the COLLECTIVE efforts were successful and a much healthier football club emerged. It's a little ironic IMO that as we go into 2021 we're looking at the club moving back to a situation where the majority shareholders will be people who until recently had no connection with DAFC! Let's hope the events of seven years ago were a one-off!

    Smile - Amazon supports DADSC!

    Thanks for signing up, SP<, and for the running commentary! I totally agree that the methodology isn't very slick, and I would have thought Amazon could have done better. However, possibly it will improve over time.

    Smile - Amazon supports DADSC!

    You're right! It looks like if you use the USUAL Amazon URL (amazon.co.uk) your purchase won`t be eligible for a donation. You may get a notice on your screen that says if you want to donate to DADSC you need to make your purchase via https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/SC048550 , but it doesn`t work as a hyperlink in the notice - you have to copy and paste that into your browser, which is clunky IMO. If you use your mobile to buy via Amazon, you can add an icon for Smile to your home screen - either go direct to the Smile url above, or search for "Smile" on the usual Amazon website. To nominate DADSC, type "Dunfermline", click "Search" then click DADSC. Sorry about all that, presumably that`s why Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world!

    DADSC AGM (This evening at 7pm)

    The meeting went well and Zoom worked fine, but not a lot turned up, unfortunately. DAFC's new Disability Access Officer (Graham Ross) took part, so that was good. Minutes have been sent to all DADSC members (whether or not they attended), but there's nothing secret so if anyone wants a copy then let me know.
  12. Amazon UK now donates to DADSC any time you buy from them - at no cost to yourself. The money (0.5% of your purchase) is paid directly to DADSC and goes to the fund for disabled access to the 1st Floor at EEP.Just use this link and nominate DADSC - start typing "Dunfermline Athletic Disabled Supporters` Club" and it should quickly be filled in. Then shop as normal.http://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/SC048550 Once you have nominated DADSC on your Amazon account you should not need to do this again, but if you encounter any problems please let me know. You may want to bookmark the smile.amazon URL just in case you need to do the steps again.Every little helps!
  13. The AGM of Dunfermline Athletic Disabled Supporters. Club (DADSC) is this evening at 7pm.Because of Covid-19 restrictions, the meeting will take place by video-conference using Zoom. Non-members are welcome to attend and take part in the discussions (although not to vote).To join in, please click on THIS LINK from 6.50pm onwards.Hopefully that will take you straight through, but if you need them the sign in details areMeeting ID: 281 813 1960Passcode: 21116
