Community Trust Day on Saturday
Monday, 10th Feb 2020 16:55
Town have designated Saturday’s game against Burton Albion Community Trust Day with fans asked to Bring a Pound to the Ground to donate to the club’s charitable arm, which was relaunched in August.
Volunteers will be outside Portman Road and in the FanZone collecting money for the Community Trust which has made significant progress since its return, six years after the club severed ties with its Charitable Trust.
“First and foremost, it creates a fan base. We’re creating positive role models through our coaches and children are becoming more and more interested with the club.”
Like the Charitable Trust before it, the Community Trust is largely responsible for much of its own funding and Curtis says the cash raised on Saturday will make a significant impact.
Town have a number of events planned for Saturday including three pre-match coaching sessions run by Trust coaches in the FanZonefrom 12.30pm - 1pm, 1pm - 1.30pm and 1.30pm - 2pm. The sessions are free for children, just turn up on the day and speak to the coaches.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
