Match day success for community partnership

4th February 2020

Earlier this year we announced our partnership with Stevenage Football Club and on Saturday 1st February we saw the limited-edition shirts created for the campaign in action in the teams match against Leyton Orient FC.

Although the score didn’t end as we had hoped, the club, players and supporters stepped up and dug deep to support the work of the Trust as we raised over £800 from donations.

Around the stadium it was inspiring to see supporters and Boro players wearing the third strip featuring the Trusts logo and colours, knowing that all profits from the sale of the shirts will directly support the work we do in the local community.

Many of our members attended the match, bringing with them staff from their local businesses. Our Chairman Robert Stewart of Stevenage Packaging Ltd said:

“In our 30th anniversary year the Stevenage Community Trust is immensely grateful to Stevenage FC and in particular to their CEO, Alex Tunbridge who so kindly arranged for the team to wear shirts with our logo on for the game against Leyton Orient and helped to raise over £3,000.

Personally, I felt a real sense of pride seeing the team come out of the tunnel. The shirts looked amazing and the generosity of the Stevenage FC fans buying shirts with the Stevenage Community Trust logo on and gifting monies through the bucket collection epitomised what a great town we live and work in.”

Alex Tunbridge Chief Executive of Stevenage Football Club said:

“We have been delighted to support Stevenage Community Trust through our third shirt initiative and are very thankful to our supporters for helping to support the charity through purchasing the limited-edition shirts over the past month.”

Watch out later this month as the shirts worn by the team will be auctioned online to add to our growing total, currently sitting at £3,200.

Special thanks also to Mark Newberry for the shot of our President Ken Follett, Mayor of Stevenage Simon Speller and our Chairman Robert Stewart posing with Boro Bear to celebrate the coming together of sport and business in Stevenage to transform the community in which we work and live.
