Rod Stewart has promised ten thousand pounds towards Cumbria's flood relief efforts.
The singer, who will play at Carlisle United's Brunton Park ground in June, contacted the club to make the offer.
Brunton Park was left underwater after Storm Desmond in December. The playing surface has been replaced at a cost of around £150,000.
It is hoped more details of how the donation will be spent will be released next week.
Plans to develop Carlisle United's stadium have stalled, the club has revealed in a statement released today.
The update on the Blue Yonder project comes from Finance Director Suzanne Kidd.
The club has been working with a developer to put together a self-financing plan for a new stadium within the city, as part of a major retail-led development project.
But that developer has now requested an extension of six to twelve months, to give it more time to progress with the plan.
The club's Finance Director says since the feasibility study in 2011, there has not been any cost to the club, and any costs incurred by this extension will be picked up by the developer.
She says they're encouraged by the fact the developer has asked for an extension, rather than shelving the project entirely.
This is her full statement:
Today was meant to be deadline day for three of Carlisle United's young players to agree new deals with the club.
But an extension has been agreed as negotiations continue.
Brad Potts has turned down United's initial offer and the club have refused a bid for Kyle Dempsey. But manager Keith Curle says both players and striker Mark Beck could still benefit by extending their stays at Brunton Park rather than leaving for short term salary boosts.
