The following info has been assembled from reading through the published CC Minutes on this site plus some information published on the Trust’s web site.
Listed by Club – AND – as requested chronologically at CC meetings – below giving reason for request where known.
I would surmise that this list is not an accurate reflection of actual expenditure as a) not all of the minutes appear to have been made available, found and/or published and b) some items ( e.g. Jenna Mora purchase) are only mentioned within the general content and not in the ‘Trust’ section – (normally at the end of the CC minutes) – grateful for any updates & happy to publish corrections etc.
Total indicated expenditure to date – £232,156.88 (Plus some unknowns)
