Tigers Trust turns 30
Posted on 9th July 2021 at 09:25
After a difficult year for all in 2020, we felt it was appropriate to postpone the celebrations for our 30th year anniversary.
One year later, we now want to dedicate our landmark year to those who have worked tirelessly to support those most in need.
Since 1990, the Tigers Trust has worked to inspire and raise the aspirations of those in our local community.
We continue to provide an inclusive and quality offer of sport and education activities and provision.
For over 30 years now, we have improved the health and well-being of our local communities through football and other activities which promote safe and happy lifestyles.
We have created the opportunity to raise educational attainment and promote a value of lifelong learning, whilst increasing access to the 'world of work' through promoting opportunities to interact with employers.
Proud to turn 30
Catherine Bishop, CEO of the Tigers Trust, says it “means so much” to see the Trust celebrate its 30th anniversary, especially after the last year or so.
She continued: “The enormity of turning 30 in a pandemic year means it’s great to reflect on the amount of people we have helped over the last 30 years.”
“The Trust did so much and is continuing to do so much out in the community.
“I know how many people we’ve helped and just being able to be there for so many makes me very proud."
We've helped over 30,000 people in the last year alone.
Richard Dexter has worked at the Trust for over 12 years now and he said he’s been able to see the charity “grow and evolve”.
He said: “It started out 30 years ago as a couple of members of staff with a few bags of footballs in local schools.
“We’ve grown into an organisation now offering a wide-range of support for everybody, from 2 to 70 and beyond!
“We’re able to offer sport and education services to enhance the lives of people.
“It means everything to me.”
