COMMUNITY TRUST AWARDED GRANT BY THE NORTHAMPTONSHIRE CHILDREN'S TRUST

Community Trust awarded grant for multi-disability fun day.

25 August 2021

Northampton Town FC Community Trust has been awarded a grant of £840.00 by the Northamptonshire Children’s Trust.

This grant will fund the adaption of NTFC Community Trust’s Multi-Disability Football Fun Day to be delivered on the 31st August and help make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across Northamptonshire.

Northampton Town FC Community Trust’s Multi-Disability Football Fun Day aims to give children the confidence to play football in an environment in which they feel safe and where they can develop skills, have fun and enjoy themselves. With the money from the Northamptonshire Children’s Trust, Northampton Town FC Community Trust will now be able to adapt these courses to limit the cost for the day to just £10 whilst providing fully qualified coaches and a fun day for all.

The day will be held at Goals Soccer Centre, Northampton, Mereway on the 31st of August between 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. Each participant will receive prizes and a certificate at our closing presentation after a day of fun-filled inclusive football activities, which will allow children to improve, build confidence and have lots of fun.

Russell Lewis, Disability & Inclusion Officer at Northampton Town FC Community Trust said “To receive funding from the Northamptonshire Children’s Trust so that we can provide our Multi-Disability Football Fun Day is brilliant, it means that we can carry on and give the participants some sort of social interaction and enjoyment, which is vital to a lot of them. We will be able to do it in a safe and secure environment and I look forward to welcoming them all and seeing them grow their skills as well as watching them grow as people.”

Northamptonshire Children’s Trust works holistically with Northamptonshire County Council and other key partner organisations to ensure that children’s services across Northamptonshire are delivered by a qualified and experienced workforce to deliver the best outcomes for children, young people and our community.
