Shrewsbury Town supporters have given their club a helping hand by teaming up with the West Brom to generate a special bonus payment of over £5,000.
The Sky Bet League 1 outfit have secured £5,270 in annual proceeds from the Amber Blue Saver affinity account, an exclusive savings product which is only available to Shrewsbury fans.
Manager Micky Mellon and first team players Dominic Smith and Junior Brown were on hand to receive the donation at a special presentation staged at the Shrewsbury branch of the West Brom on the town’s High Street. The trio also held a meet and greet session with customers and staff.
Matt Williams, Chief Executive of Shrewsbury Town FC, said: “We pass on our heartfelt thanks to the West Brom for their continued support through the Amber Blue Saver affinity account.
“It’s a fantastic scheme which benefits both Shrewsbury fans and the club and the money donated by the West Brom will be a big help.”
Megan Edwards, Manager of West Brom’s Shrewsbury branch, added: “Having Micky, Dominic and Junior in the branch created a real buzz for both staff and our customers and, as a building society, we are proud to make this donation.
“The Amber Blue Saver is a win-win situation for fans – they can save money for themselves and help generate funds for their club at the same time.
“We make an annual bonus payment to Shrewsbury based on the total amount saved across all accounts under the scheme, so the more fans save the more the club receives.
“It’s fantastic to be able to help Shrewsbury Town each year as we all know how important a role the football club can play in the community.”
