Stockport County Community Foundation are delighted to announce an
agreement with the SCFC Gold Bond Lottery. The partnership will mean that both
sides benefit from each other’s support. The SCFC Development Association will
donate a percentage of its profits to the Disability Programme, managed by
Stockport County Community Foundation. The Community Foundation will actively
seek new members for the Stockport County FC Gold Bond Lottery, while also
offering a £5 Soccer School discount to all lottery members.
Tom Quayle, Manager of the SCFC Gold Bond Lottery, said: “On
behalf of the Lottery office we are delighted to be able to support the
Community Foundation’s Disability Programme with a weekly donation. We are
looking forward to working closely with the Community Foundation in order to
benefit both the Football Club and the people with disabilities that the
Foundation already does a fantastic job in supporting in the local community.
“This is just the first of many ways we aim to help each other and
I personally would like to take this opportunity to thank Dave and the
Community Foundation office staff for allowing us this opportunity.”
Adrian Rigby-Bates, Disability Football Development Officer for
the Community Foundation said; “We are absolutely delighted with our
partnership with the Club’s Lottery and very grateful to them for their weekly
support with their very kind donation. We are very grateful to receive
donations of this type which are invaluable in helping towards funding the
Foundation’s valuable services and provision that support children and adults
with a range of physical and learning disabilities.
“The Disability Football project is designed to extend physical
activity opportunities for disabled adults and young people in Stockport and
the local area and increase the opportunity for disabled people to play
football and take part in a range of multisport opportunities.”
Everyone at the Community Foundation looks forward to a productive
and successful partnership with the SCFC Development Association. If you would
