SWINDON Town Football in the Community Trust are delighted, after a year of fundraising events, to unveil their new Football in the Community Trust minibus which will help them to enhance the delivery of their programmes such as Disability, Twilight (social inclusion project for teenagers), the Football and Futsal Education Programme and Extra Time activities to name but a few.
The Charitable Community Trust ran a number of fundraising activities throughout 2013 with the main one being held at Lydiard House where they staged a Summer Ball back in June. A big thank you needs to go to Joe O’Brien the Business Support Officer for the Trust, for all his hard work and commitment in making the evening such a huge success. In addition the Trust would like to offer their sincere thanks to Mark Sawyer and Denise Bentley from TE Connectivity, and Michelle Hobbs from Tesco’s for supporting the Trust’s Minibus appeal and making it possible for them to have their own form of transport, which will be a major boost to the Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust.
The Community Trust Joint Manager Clive Maguire commented “ We have had another fantastic year with the purchase of our mini bus being one of our major highlights and achievements. The support we have received from both TE Connectivity and Tesco’s has been pivotal in enabling us reach our goal of obtaining our very own vehicle. The benefits for our participants who engage within our programmes will be amazing. I personally cannot wait to take our Down Syndrome football team to the National DS Active Festival at West Bromwich Albion in March next year.”
