Jim on Danny ! `If seeing this man brings great memories flooding back, a smile to your face, or lifts your spirits, then why wouldn’t you support a project to make sure you get to see him every time you walk up to EP?` Those were the words offered this week via social media, by one great County Manager Jim Gannon about another great County Manager Danny Bergara, in support of the idea of a permanent tribute to Danny in the form of a statue outside Edgeley Park. To help that idea to fruition and to donate to our appeal go to:- https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/dannybergara?utm_term=bzbaGAmQN ….or visit our dedicated website https://www.dannybergarastatue.co.uk Stockport County Supporters Cooperative and Help the Hatters
