Dixmar / PUPS Cheque Presentation

Last Friday evening Billy Dixon of Dixmar Racing presented a cheque for £301.54 to FONCY. The money was raised on the Pink Un message board's popular "Rays Funds for FONCY" threads. The name is in honour of the late Ray Ducker who started the whole thing. Every week PUPs from all over the world unite to predict six results on the weekend's football. Billy Dixon (Dixmar Racing) gives them a free £10 bet on these six selections and any money won goes to the Academy via FONCY.

Last season there were seven winning weeks which in total raised £241.54 then during the summer the PUPs won another £60 on the "Rays Funds at the World Cup" thread. The World Cup thread was generously sponsored by John Tilson through the sale of his monster sized England flag. This follows the £658 raised in previous seasons taking the total presented so far to over £959.

John Landamore of FONCY was joined by Ricky Martin from the Academy to accept the latest cheque from Billy Dixon.

There is of course keen competition amongst the PUPs themselves and who have their own competition through the season to see who can be the most successful tipster. Trophies were generously donated by Kevin Hardwick (aka Leedscanary) who made the long journey from Leeds to be at the presentation. These trophies were presented by Ricky Martin. The Top PUP for the season was a picker known as Mr Bump who correctly predicted in 39 of the 40 weeks. Mr. Bump wasn't able to be at the presentation so his trophy was picked up on his behalf by another of the successful pickers Mister Chops. Kevin also donated medals to the seven PUPs who managed to pick correctly in over 90% of their selections.

Rays Funds for FONCY has returned this season and already the PUPs have had their first win of over £72. This has taken the total raised to £1032.The idea is proving more popular than ever with over 60 PUPs taking part every week. These fans come from all over the world united by the aim of raising money for their beloved football club.

FONCY would like to pass on their thanks to all PUPs and Billy Dixon for their support.
