The Jammers Fans Association was launched in 2021 and prides its self on fan engagement and experiences, promote inclusivity amongst the football, whilst growing the reputation of the club in the local community.
Since it's formation, the JFA has organised a number of events which have benefited the community, such as Easter Egg and Foodbank collections.
Now, in an effort to give something further back to the community, the members of the JFA are turning their hand to a 10 MILE charity walk in aid of two charties close to both the local area and Maldon & Tiptree Football Club in the shape of Farleigh Hospice and DEBRA.
DEBRA is a national charity and patient support group for people living with the rare, extremely painful, genetic skin blistering condition, Epidermolysis Bollosa (EB) known as Butterfly Skin, which the late, Darren Gibbons suffered from.

As many will know, Farleigh Hospice help patients to live as actively as possible from the point of diagnosis to the end of their life, by providing physical and emotional care, free of charge. The charity has supported a number of families in an around Maldon, including some of our committee members in times of real need.

Tony Williams, Richard Buckby, Anthony Knight, Lee Witney, Ross Holland, Scott Mitchell, Terry Baumber, Trevor Browning, Gary Rayner, Val Gibbons, Kelly Koller, Mitchell Ribet, Kieran Ribet, Cllr Andrew Lay (Town Major), & Steve Birch.
