CLOUGHIE GREEN JUMPERS
RAISED CASH FOR FUND
Green sweaters helped to boost statue fund
Eye-catching green sweatshirts went on sale to give a boost to Nottingham's statue fund. More were produced following a huge demand, and helped to raise thousands of pounds.
They have now sold-out and no more are being made. The fund is closed after volunteers smashed through their target and raised £70,000 in just 18 months.
Costing just £20.00, most sizes sold out within just two hours when the sweaters were launched before Nottingham Forest's home match against Southend (November 19th, 2005). Many more were sold before Forest's match against Walsall on December 10th, taking the statue fund's total to over £20,000 at the time.
Among the customers determined to have one of the special sweatshirts was the lady who was Cloughie's secretary at Forest, Carole Washington. She is pictured, below, buying her sweater from the chairman of the statue fund, Paul Ellis.
