Stevenage Football Club is delighted to announce a charitable new partnership with Stevenage Community Trust this season...
The Trust has been chosen as the main charitable beneficiary for the current campaign and the focal point of this project is Stevenage Football Club's Saturday 1st February 2020 match at home against Leyton Orient, in which Boro will play in the specially designed Stevenage Community Trust Third Kit, which is on sale now from StevenageFCShop.com and the Club Shop.
This will be a first for the Club, who have never previously utilised their Third Kit to an outside organisation and this will provide massive UK-wide publicity for the Trust and for the activities which they undertake.
Only 250 of these limited-edition shirts have been produced and they will be sold to raise funds for Stevenage Community Trust, with the profits made from the sale of these shirts donated directly to the Trust. Shirts worn by the players themselves in the Leyton Orient match on Saturday 1st February will also be available as they will be auctioned off at the end of the season for supporters to bid for.
Both parties are now calling on the people of the town, supporters of the Trust and the Boro to back this initiative in a number of ways - the simplest will be to buy a shirt to keep and wear it at The Lamex Stadium!
Commenting on the project, Alex Tunbridge, Chief Executive of Stevenage FC said, “We are delighted to be supporting Stevenage Community Trust by raising awareness and funds through wearing our first ever third kit at our match against Leyton Orient. We hope the club’s supporters and members of the local community will show their support for the fantastic work the Trust carries out in our town by purchasing a shirt and supporting the campaign.”
Sharon Brown, Vice-Chairman of Stevenage Community Trust said, “This link between ourselves and Stevenage FC shows just how powerful organisations and businesses can be when they work together for their community. The project to produce a third shirt is unique in the Football League and at a local level will go a long way to help our work to support charitable groups and individuals at greatest need in the town and the surrounding villages. We are grateful to the club for working with us in this groundbreaking scheme.”
