We are delighted to be announced as the clubs Official Charity Partner for the 2015/16 season.
With the aim of making a difference in the local community by involving people in sport and promoting the values linked to sporting success, we provide activities, support and education to people of all ages and in 2015 aim to engage more than 18,000 members of the local community.
Through our projects, we aim to achieve positive outcomes in health & wellbeing, education & employability and reductions in crime & anti-social behaviour.
With the help of the Football Club, we will receive further support and benefit from enhanced publicity through a range of activities, with defender Alex Bruce named as our ambassador.
Speaking about the role, Bruce said: “I’m delighted to become the new ambassador for the Tigers Sport & Education Trust. Having been at this football club for three years now, I have seen first-hand the great work that the Trust does in the local community and understand how we as players can play an influential role in helping to reach those that the Trust aims to engage with.
“I am now looking forward to working even more closely with John Davies and his dedicated team of staff in the months to come.”
The Tigers’ Marketing Manager, James Mooney, added: “We are delighted to be offering further support to John Davies and the team at the Tigers Trust during their 25-year anniversary. The Trust has done incredible work across the region and we hope with a little more help from the Club this can grow bigger and better than ever before.”
Trust Manager John Davies is delighted that the Club has chosen us as their Official Charity Partner, saying: “We really appreciate the opportunity given to us by the Club. It shows significant support and recognition to us as a charity and for the work that we do within the local community.”
We are excited about the opportunities this season will bring, and hope supporters will get involved with our fundraising efforts and events!
