National League Trust Day of Recognition

The National League Trust’s Day of Recognition gives us the opportunity to reflect on the work done in the local community during a very difficult year for all of us. 

The Covid-19 Pandemic saw families across our community suffering the same issues the whole of the UK were going through. Feeding children during half term breaks, accessing food shopping and providing toys at Christmas.

Chesterfield FC Community Trust took a number of different strategies to support local people during this time. The Trust gave out free school meals from the HUB during the holidays and launched Chester’s Christmas Toy Appeal, making sure every child in Chesterfield had the opportunity to be fed and to receive a toy on Christmas Day. 

In addition, our staff went into the community to help deliver food parcels on behalf of Derbyshire Community Hub and Gussies Kitchen.

Speaking about the Trust’s efforts, community manager Keith Jackson said: “Our role is to support the lives of the local community and we wanted to do as much as we possibly could for them. 

“The projects, which were supported by the National League Trust, enabled us to deliver food across the district, serve food from our stadium and distribute gifts at Christmas. Our staff were brilliant in their efforts, doing what we could to help people in Chesterfield.”
