Community Trust Head: We're Off to a Fantastic Start
Friday, 14th Feb 2020 16:21
ITFC Community Trust head Jason Curtis says the relaunch of the charity arm of the club couldn’t have gone any better. Town have designated Saturday Community Trust Day with fans asked to Bring a Pound to the Ground as a donation.
Volunteers will be outside Portman Road ahead of the game against Burton collecting money for the Trust, which was revived in August, six years after the club severed ties with its Charitable Trust.
“We’re hitting targets and overachieving in some aspects already. We’re working with around 6,000 children and vulnerable adults per week,” Curtis told the club site.
“It’s been fantastic. The response from the community across those sectors, when Ipswich Town Community Trust was rebranded and relaunched, has been phenomenal.
“The support we have received from the manager and players has been fantastic as well. It’s really helped generate a feel good factor wherever we go.”
Curtis will be among the guests on Saturday’s Life’s a Pitch on BBC Radio Suffolk.

The long slog back to the station after Saturday’s familiar witless performance felt like another Groundhog Day. The wind whipped in from the river and the grey skies threatened to spill into rain.

As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
