Trust team up with world’s oldest football club to deliver weight management programme

Chesterfield FC Community Trust and Sheffield Football Club are teaming up to deliver a male specific adult weight management programme. 

Staff from Chesterfield Community Trust will be delivering the programme, using facilities at The Tuffnells Home of Football Stadium in Dronfield. 

Richard Sheldon, Sheffield FC’s general manager, said: “It’s a pleasure to partner with Chesterfield FC Community Trust and Derbyshire County Council to deliver this incredible programme, designed to help promote healthier lifestyles and weight management.

“There is no cost to sign up to the programme and there are some fantastic benefits, such as free gym membership and free match tickets to watch The World’s First Football Club.”

Andrea Parkinson, the Community Trust’s wellbeing manager, is delighted to be working in partnership with Sheffield Football Club to deliver the programme.

She said: “Working within Dronfield will allow us to support more participants across Derbyshire. I would like to thank Sheffield FC for being so accommodating.

“Having already successfully delivered a similar programme in the HUB at the Technique Stadium, I am sure the programme will be a great success in Dronfield.”

Delivered over a 12-week period, the programme will feature sessions each Friday, commencing on March 11, from 12pm to 2pm.
