TRFC: Club costs for traveller damages & bills

During the course of Wednesday (26th May) evening our grounds were broken into by a large group of the travelling community. After peaceful attempts to move them on failed we were left with no choice but to instruct private bailiffs, at a considerable cost to ourselves. This process is currently ongoing. 

In this time our visitors have caused extensive damage including but not limited to:
The pitches and grounds,
The club's main gate,
Medical equipment on site, 
Taps and waterworks, 

For this reason we are asking for any help you can offer to try and alleviate what is looking like a major bill and clean-up operation for the club. Our two main costs are the installation of a new gate system to ensure something like this doesn't happen again, and also the costs associated with our bailiffs and the private security we have had to employ. 

Any money beyond what is needed that we do raise will be donated to the community and business that have also been affected.
