“Beard Tax” is our budget boosting scheme aimed at helping Hemel Hempstead Town FC and has run successfully for the last five years, so far paying £6,500 to The Tudors. We’ve faced some obvious difficulties in committing to the scheme for 2020/21 but we’re determined to go ahead with it and our current plan is to participate in the football club’s Player Sponsorship scheme, sponsoring the shirts of as many players as our budget allows. With there still being some uncertainty about fans returning to stadiums to watch games and the likelihood of the pandemic having financial implications on some fans, we’re budgeting for this scheme for less funds this season, but we’re still keen for previous members of the initiative to return and we encourage new members. If you want to contribute, this can be a one off payment or frequent weekly or monthly payments – there’s no obligation to remain in the scheme if you want to withdraw during the season. We can accept payments by PayPal or standing order from you bank account or you can pay by cash/card (contactless card payments accepted) to TSC Chairman Kevin Patterson on match days.
