KETTERING TOWN F.C. COMMUNITY TRUST
One club - One Community
'Our vision as a charity is to offer the highest quality programmes to all members of the local community, to improve their quality of life through Physical Activity, Education, Health and Community Inclusion.'
MASS RUNNING EVENT
Would you like to be part of a BIG fundraiser for mental health in young people, by taking part in a mass running event on Sunday 4th April 2021 at 8am, using your own designated/chosen route.
This is a joint venture, which will include the KTFC Education Scheme, the Academy, and we hope as many fans and members of the community that we can encourage to take part.
As well as improving your fitness, we believe the training focus, exercise and online social interaction will provide massive benefits to the mental health & wellbeing of those looking to take part.
Former Poppies skipper and Head of Education Luke Graham will head up the campaign. For his education students, he will be organizing a weekly planned chart to cover miles recommended, to get students to the level required to run on the April date. Weekly times and routes will be posted on social media to show how the boys are attacking it and it is hoped that this will provide help, support and motivation to others.
You won’t get a better opportunity to achieve something a lot of people never get to do!!

Thank you Tesco
KTFC Community Charity Trust has been awarded a £1,000 grant from the Tesco's Bags of Help Funding Campaign.
This money will be used towards team kit, equipment and facility costs for our Multi-Disability youth group.
To top it off, the team and their group leader David Dent, were then invited to be part of the latest Tesco Bags of Help promotional video - have a watch to see our stars in action, on the Latimer Park pitch. How amazing that our young players will be seen all across the UK, in this brilliant video.

KTFC Community Trust and Argos have combined to provide toys and gifts for our ‘Children First Northamptonshire’ partner. All toys will go to ‘Looked After Children’ who currently reside in Kettering and the surrounding area.
In the October half-term holidays, we ran a successful activity week at the club, for looked after children. The fantastic Christmas gesture from Argos, has allowed us to join with them to support 'Children First' once more. We hope these gifts put a smile on the face of many children on Christmas Day.
Thanks must go to Argos Manager Dannielle York for her support with this venture, and a big well done to both Argos and Kettering Town FC Community Trust for this magnificent project.
