COBBLERS DONATE COMMUNITY SHIELD PROCEEDS TO GRENFELL FIRE APPEAL

Donation made as part of football wide fundraising appeal

23 June 2017

Northampton Town Football Club are one of a number of EFL clubs who have agreed to donate their £2,000 share of the proceeds from the FA Community Shield match this summer to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire disaster.

Clubs receive a donation from the proceeds of the FA Community Shield match each season, and last season the Cobblers donated their £2,000 share of the proceeds to the Northampton Hope Centre, the Leon Barwell Foundation and the Northamptonshire FA's Swain Benevolent Fund, but have decided this year to support the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

The Cobblers donation to the Grenfell Tower victims will form part of a fundraising effort from the EFL and its member clubs who have come together to make a collective donation of £175,000 to show support to all those affected.

In addition, the FA has announced plans to raise £1.25 million for the victims.
