One of the stated aims of LOFT is to raise money and donate it to the club to be spent in such a way to promote our objectives and to benefit the local community and the supporters of Leyton Orient. We have already purchased over 4,600 shares in the club in the past two share issues, which are jointly owned by all our members. This means that a small part of Leyton Orient is democratically owned. We would like to increase this percentage, and most of our fundraising has this aim in mind. To this aim, we ringfenced 50% of our income as at the end of season 2002-03 specifically for share-purchase or a club "emergency", and this was used in the most recent share issue.
