Trust to showcase work around Community Day

The Club’s annual Community Day will take place on Saturday, 12 March for the home fixture with Portsmouth.

Community Day recognises the work of the Club’s charitable arm, Ipswich Town Community Trust, which was relaunched in August 2019 and has made significant progress since its return.

As part of the event, the Club is encouraging supporters to ‘bring a pound to the ground’ with bucket collections, which will feature QR codes for those who would prefer to make a quick bank transfer, both inside and outside Portman Road on the day.

There is also a 'donate now' button on the Club's ticketing website alongside the Portsmouth match for supporters who would like to donate before the match.

Building up to Community Day the Club will also be showcasing the work the Trust carries out in the Community, hearing from both participants and coaches with exclusive interviews and features.

As well as this, the Trust will be running a raffle after the Pompey clash with five match-worn shirts up for grabs. More details on this raffle will be released in due course.

One thousand tickets are being distributed to participants involved in Trust programmes, while there will also be another raffle with a chance for a fan to face a Town first-team player on one of the inflatable challenges in the FanZone. Again, more details will be released soon.

The Community Trust will also have a significant presence in the FanZone on Community Day.

Jason Curtis, head of the Community Trust, said: "We're delighted to have the full support from the Club with an opportunity to highlight the work we do.

"Community Day is a significant annual event for the Community Trust as it most importantly raises our profile and celebrates all the fantastic work we are doing with various groups and individuals across Suffolk and beyond.

"Our staff continue to engage and inspire creating experiences and lifelong memories, so giving the team some recognition also goes a long way.

"Having such a close relationship with the club and their ongoing support is a key part of helping us achieve our strategic aims and objectives."

Town CEO, Mark Ashton, added: "Community Day is a great opportunity to showcase the brilliant work the Trust does.

"Since I arrived in June, we have emphasised the importance of the community and why it is vital that the community is at the centre of everything the Club does. Days like this will help show what we are doing to back those words up.

"It should be a great day and I look forward to seeing everything the Trust have planned at Portman Road."
