Local event venue teams up with Club's charitable arm
The Ipswich Town Community Trust is the designated charity of local event venue Greshams for 2020.
Greshams owner, Mark Calver, a long standing Blues fan and commercial sponsor has worked with the Club for many years and has chosen Town’s recently re-launched Trust as their charity partner for the next 12 months.
“We are overwhelmed by this kind gesture and would like to thank Mark, Mick and the Greshams team for choosing Ipswich Town Community Trust as their designated charity for 2020,” said Jason Curtis, head of the Trust.
“Additional income for the charity will enable us to up-skill existing coaches, potentially add more coaching staff to our team and add to the services we offer, reaching out to new areas and groups in the community.”
Town’s director of sales, Rosie Richardson, added: “It is an honour that Greshams would like to support us in this way. We have worked with Mark and his team on various other initiatives and this further cements the well established relationship we have.”
Mark Calver commented: “We have worked alongside Ipswich Town Football Club for many years in providing sponsorship for a wide variety of events. We look forward to sponsoring the Community Trust and the work that it does for the people it supports.”
Mick Parker, managing director of Greshams Ipswich, added: “We have a unique opportunity to make a real difference and the Community Trust will become a key part of our objective to support the people of Ipswich and surrounding areas.”
