Trust Survey a Great Success

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

The Raith Rovers Fan Survey has now been completed and we are pleased to report has been a great success. 

We received responses from 321 Raith fans – an increase of 16% on the last time the survey was run in 2003. We also managed to almost double the number of responses from Trust members so a big thank you to all who completed a survey at the Dunfermline game or online.

The questionnaires are now being analysed in detail and results will be made available as soon as possible.  The findings will give us a tremendous insight into how fans feel about the club as well as giving us important feedback on the future work of the Trust.

Annual General Meeting, 25th November 2009

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

All Trust members will be receiving notification shortly of our next AGM. This will take place at 7pm on Wednesday 25th November in the Raith Suite at Starks Park. This AGM will present the 2008/09 Trust accounts for your review, and will be followed by a more informal session to discuss a number of fundraising initiatives.

The formal business of the AGM will commence at 7pm, with the following agenda:

  • Introductions
  • Treasurer’s report, and Independent Examiner’s Report
  • Membership statement
  • Election of Trust Board
  • AOB

As normally happens at our AGMs, two of our board members will be standing down on rotation. Both have indicated their willingness to be considered for re-election, alongside any member who wishes to stand for election. Fresh blood on the Trust board is always welcomed, and I would encourage anyone with an interest in becoming more involved in the Trust to come forward.

We hope to see as many of our members as possible on the 25th November.

Trust to hold “biggest ever” survey of Raith fans

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

The Raith Trust are set to conduct the biggest ever survey of Rovers fans this Saturday. Trust members will be handing out questionnaires at the Fife Derby against Dunfermline and every Rovers fan will have the opportunity to say how exactly how they feel about their club.

Chairman Alan Russell said “This is the most wide ranging survey the Trust has ever conducted. We will be asking fans their views on everything from the match day experience on a Saturday to the long term future of Raith Rovers. It is important that every fan has the chance to have their say. The Trust is about giving supporters a greater say in the running of their club and this survey is an excellent way to make sure that the voice of ordinary Rovers fans is heard. I hope that as many fans as possible fill in the short questionnaire on Saturday”.

Questionnaires will be handed out before the game on Saturday and at half time by Trust members. The findings from the survey will help inform the work of the Trust over the coming years.
