Northampton Town Football Club and the Northampton Town Community Trust are working hard to support the community of Northampton and beyond during this coronavirus outbreak.
During the past few weeks, club officials, staff and players have continued to make phone calls and send videos and messages to supporters to check on their wellbeing, lift spirits or to generally help out. This work is ongoing and we would like to say thank you to everyone who has taken one of our calls so far, it has been great to speak to you!
Some of the other highlights this week have included:
Staff delivering leaflets on behalf of Northamptonshire County Council to help members of the community find any help they need.
Morgan Roberts speaking to the academy players, taking their questions and offering his advice on becoming a professional
The Community Trust staff helped deliver donations from volunteers to a number of locations across the county
The Community Trust staged another virtual Extra Time Coffee Club on Friday morning
We helped put an appeal out on behalf of the Weston Favell Foodbank
The calls to supporters continued!
Supporting the Hope Centre's Virtual Cycling Challenge!
The Northampton Town Education programme have continued to deliver many hours of education to students from across the club's Academy, Football & Education and inclusion programmes, using a range of technology and there is of course plenty more to come, while under 18s coach Jon Brady ran a half marathon to raise funds for NHS charities.
Alan McCormack spoke to the Academy players via a Zoom meeting on Thursday evening to offer advice and pass on his experience, while goalkeeping coach Dan Watson called Academy under 14 goalkeeper Marcus to chat after a difficult few days.
Northampton Town Football Club and the Northampton Town Community Trust will continue to offer as much support as we can to those in need through this period of uncertainty and we look forward to the day when we can get together again at the PTS Academy Stadium!
In the meantime, if you wish to support the work of the Northampton Town Community Trust, we have plenty of items on our official ebay site ending in the next seven days with profits to the Northampton Town Community Trust.
