President of the Trust Ken Follett and Mayor of Stevenage Simon Speller joined Chairman Robert Stewart and many other Trust Members at the match on Saturday to celebrate the coming together of sport and business in Stevenage.
Chairman Robert Stewart said, “In our 30th anniversary year the Stevenage Community Trust are 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.
“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, CEO of Stevenage Football Club said “We have been delighted to support Stevenage Community Trust through our Third Shirt initiative and are very thankful for our supporters, for helping to support the charity through purchasing the limited edition shirts over the past month.”
