This page is set up on behalf of the Hull City Official Supporters Club, which I chair, to facilitate fundraising for 2 charities very close to Hull City and football in the wider United Kingdom, through initially our online quizzes which take place every fortnight.
Tigers Trust is the first of our chosen charities to support throughout 2021. Here’s a little bit more about them....
The Tigers Sport and Education Trust is on a journey, starting life as a project in 1990, the Trust reached a milestone of 30 years amidst the 2020 pandemic. During the 30 years the Football in the Community Project transitioned to a Charity in 2001 and has continued to grow and extend its offer beyond the football pitch but importantly using the power of the badge, Hull City FC. Located at the Tigers Trust Arena the charity provided support to over 33,395 participants through our core activity across Hull and East Yorkshire during the 2019-2020. In addition, reaching out to over 35,000+ people during the pandemic in new and innovative ways to continue our support to those in need in a Covid safe way. We are essentially a small charity with a big heart.
Our second charity is The Jeff Astle Foundation which was established in 2015 as a fitting and lasting legacy of the ex West Brom and Notts County striker, to both raise awareness of brain injury in all forms of sport and to offer much needed support to those affected.
Led by Jeff's daughter, Dawn, the Foundation set out a series of goals:
1 Year - To raise awareness of brain injury in sport at all levels of the game.
3 Year - To work with sports authorities to deliver independent research into the links between brain injury in sport and degenerative brain disease.
10 Year - To provide support for sports people living with the affects of dementia or chronic neurological impairment.
We’re sure you‘ll be as passionate about these two causes as were are and look forward to your tremendous support.
