Dennis’ Jobs at the Trust:
Washer and Cleaner in Chester’s Den and Volunteer at the Vintage Programme Shop

Dennis has been working with the Community Trust for about two years, regularly washing and cleaning up in Chester’s Den and also volunteering in the Vintage Programme Shop which is open on a match day.
Being a life-long fan of Chesterfield FC means that Dennis thoroughly enjoys coming into work and helping out as much as he can and also enjoys going to watch the Spireites.
“I’m proud to work for the club. We have a great facilities, a great team in Chester’s and everyone here wants to make the Trust be as good as it can be.” Dennis said.
Dennis takes great pride in the work that he does in the kitchen and the Programme Shop and loves the team spirit that brings the staff at the Trust together.



Robert Fletcher started ‘A Spire Right’ in March 2017, Robert was referred to us by Chesterfield Job Centre. At this time, Robert wanted to gain structure and routine to his life, he wanted to get physically fitter.

Since attending ‘A Spire Right’, Robert has gained confidence, self-belief and motivation to apply for jobs. Just recently, Robert started as a steward at Chesterfield Football Club.

Robert said, “The programme gave me the opportunity to learn new skills and exercises that I can do at home and incorporate into my everyday life.”

Robert completed two cohorts equalling to 16 weeks and within this time, he participated in a variety of different exercises including boxing and using the gym that is based at the stadium.
