Princebuild director Jonathan Pudney, a lifelong Posh fan, said: “We are delighted to be able to support this wonderful project to honour the memory of Chris, He was truly a friend of every supporter of the club,
“We have been impressed by the generosity of the fans who have managed to raise a huge sum in such a short period of time and we wanted to show our support for the project and help the committee get over the goal-line.”
A Statue Fund spokesman said: “The committee would like to thank everyone at Princebuild for their amazing offer and look forward to welcoming them on September 1 to the unveiling event.”
The fundraising continues this weekend (February 11 & 12) with a Northern Soul/Motown Weekender in Whittlesey. For further details please see the following link.
