The Seagulls, who have recently reopened parts of their Optima Stadium after closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, have raised just under £4,000 for stadium maintenance and are now looking to get over the £5,000 mark so other works can be completed, such as a PA system upgrade and new toilets in the club bar.

Anyone who donates over five pounds will receive free entry into one of the club’s pre-season fixtures.

“The support from the local community has been fantastic” said operations director Neil Keeling.

“We have already been able to undertake some key stadium upgrades as a direct result of the money we have raised, so our supporters will notice a difference as soon as they step inside The Optima Stadium.
