Chorley's local newspaper, the Chorley Guardian, has been behind a unique fund raising initiative where companies join the 'CFC 200 club' with a view to winning a £10k sponsorship package.
The aim is to raise funds of £40k for the Football Club.
Any business interested in purchasing one or more raffle tickets priced at £200 should please contact Commercial Manager, John Derbyshire, at the club.
The campaign has got off to a fantastic start, having sold over sixty tickets to date.
As John says: 'We greatly appreciate the support we have received and are well on our way to our 200 target.
Thank you for your time, and your valued support you give to Chorley Football Club.'
Despite their own financial worries the club remain committed to helping raise funds for their nominated charity - Derian House. A grand sum of £450 was raised last Friday at a Casino Evening and over £500 at a recent game when a bucket collection was organised.
