Campaign was started by Mariners Trust with initial target of £20,000

icon moneysave27 July ~ Grimsby Town fans have raised £100,000 as part of the Operation Promotion campaign led by supporters’ group the Mariners Trust. The campaign began eight weeks ago with the aim of raising £20,000. Lottery winners Lee and Sue Mullen, now on the board at Grimsby Town, offered to match the amount raised to a maximum of £20,000, with the Trust adding £5,000 themselves. But more than 3,500 individual donations have been made by almost 2,000 supporters, boosting manager Paul Hurst’s transfer fund by five times the original target.
