Bring the Dons homePlough Lane Bond – interest repayments

It may seem like only yesterday in some respects, but it is actually a little more than a year since fans and the Trust came together to launch the Plough Lane Bond – and our admin team is progressing the second batch of annual interest payments this week.

The scheme, which is still open, has raised more than £5.5m and is the UK’s most successful football club loan scheme. Crucially, it made the difference when it came to financing the..

Plough Lane Bond – one year on

It’s a year since the launch of the Plough Lane Bond, which means our admin team is progressing the first batch of annual interest payments.

The scheme, which is still open, has already raised more than £5.5m to enable the stadium construction to be completed on time and is the UK’s most successful football club loan scheme.

Some Bondholders have contacted us to say they would like to donate their interest back to the club. We are grateful for anyone..

Bring the Dons homePlough Lane Bond: Donations of Interest

Some bondholders have kindly contacted the Dons Trust to ask about reducing the interest rate on their bond or waiving interest payments.

The DT are very grateful to bondholders who have suggested this, recognising the change in the financial landscape since the Bond was launched. We cannot, however, do it at this late stage as it will create considerable administrative complexity (bearing in mind that these are 5, 10 or 20-year loans with agreed terms and conditions).

However, if you..

Update on the Plough Lane Bond

Amidst the recent flurry of activity on debentures, we take this opportunity to provide a brief update on the Plough Lane Bond.

Few supporters will need reminding of the extraordinary success of the Plough Lane Bond, which rapidly raised over £5 million for the stadium financing following its launch in January. Our thanks go to everyone who bought bonds and to the small band of individuals who put in so much work to get it launched.

Understandably, subscriptions have slowed..

Plough Lane Bond remains open

As work continues at Plough Lane, the Plough Lane Bond is being kept open.

With more than £5.1m in the bank, the Bond organisers are keeping applications open and encouraging existing applicants who haven’t yet completed their purchase to do so.

Whilst the vast majority of bonds have been completed, there are still 134 applicants for bonds totalling over £200,000 who have yet to finalise their purchases. They are urged to contact the bond team and do so before the..

An update from the Dons Trust Board – March 2020

As we enter March we want to take the opportunity to update fans and members about a few positive developments in and around the Club which you may or may not be aware of.

First, as part of the DTB’s commitment to increased fan engagement, we have sent out a ticketing survey seeking your views on everything from child pricing to Season Ticket perks for adults. The email is going out to more than 10,000 people, and we know such..

Graham StaceyNow really is our time

Newly elected Dons Trust Board member Graham Stacey was planning to tell you what it’s like to be on the board. But now that will have to wait …

They do say that timing is everything. For this, my first ever Dons Trust page, I was going to be writing about what people could expect if they were ever to be elected to the Dons Trust Board. But I do hope it won’t be too often that anyone is elected..

Show your love and invest in the Plough Lane Bond

The deadline for the Plough Lane Bond is fast approaching and while it has been a fantastic success so far (almost £4.1m raised) we urge all fans who are able to take part, either through the main bond website (for investments of £1,000 up) or the We Are Wimbledon Fund (for investments between £50 and £950), to drive the total to at least the £5m target we have set. So far the average investment has been £4,000 over a 7-year..
