The Club have granted permission for us to hold a bucket collection at the Walsall match on Saturday in support of the Danny Bergara Statue appeal.
We are pleased to say that Help the Hatters will be joining us again and with your fantastic support we can get within reasonable striking distance of our target and get that statue erected outside Edgeley Park.
Meet the Sculptor Evening.
This was the moment we had been waiting for since the campaign to erect a statue in memory of the amazing Danny Bergara was launched- our chosen sculptor the excellent award-winning Hannah Stewart was in Stockport to meet County supporters and update us as to progress on the statue.
Held in the Hardcastle Suite at Edgeley Park last night, if the evening wasn`t a `sell- out` a decent number made it to the venue despite the lack of signage at County`s HQ, and the general opinion offered afterwards by those present was that it was a massively worthwhile experience and a confidence builder confirming that we really will get that statue in place in the very near future.
Hannah came by train for her second visit to Edgeley Park, from her home in Horsham with her husband Simon and it was a delight to see Simon and Lorna Bergara enjoying a pre-event chat at the bar.
During an illuminating presentation Hannah produced sketches of the proposed statue pose which is being worked on. She expects to be working on it until around January time before the moulds will then go to the foundry to be cast into bronze, following a scrupulous consultation process- making end of this season a definite possibility for statue erection.
Thanks to Nick Lee who hosted the event for the evening introducing Supporters Cooperative Chair Pete Towey and former players Paul Wheeler and Paul Jones who each spoke with pride of Danny in the 90`s and his profound effect on County`s fortunes.
Supporters were able to ply Hannah and the players with questions and the applause was loud and long following this
As mentioned above , there will be much necessary consultation twixt sculptor/ the Supporters Cooperative and the Bergara Family before the statue is erected, ensuring the end product is spot on.
We will supply more detailed information on the presentation and much that is mentioned above soon.
Upcoming in October.
Starting on Sunday we have an interesting project that could add as much as £2000 to our statue appeal total.
Await further news Sunday!
