A delegation from the Fulham Supporters’ Trust met with the chief executive of the Fulham Foundation, Stephen Day this afternoon.
The Fulham Foundation, which was renamed from the Fulham FC Community Sports Trust in August 2009, has charitable status but retains close links with the football club. The Foundation runs several sports-related programmes in a number of London boroughs and Surrey.
The Foundation, which employs thirty full-time staff, worked with more than 25,000 young people during the past year, providing over 220,000 opportunities for them.
Despite being commended both locally and nationally, the Foundation’s work still has a low profile amongst Fulham’s supporters. The Trust is keen to work with the Foundation to boost awareness amongst the club’s fan base and support the Foundation’s activities.
By the end of the season, the Fulham Supporters’ Trust committee hopes to have made a contribution towards one of the local projects that the Foundation is currently supporting. The Trust would like to kindly ask all Fulham supporters to consider signing up for the Fulham Foundation Lottery, which helps fund much of the Foundation’s excellent work.
