We may not be together at Wembley to watch the Blues take on Salford City FC in the Papa John’s Trophy Final, on Saturday 13th March, but we’re together on raising vital funds for our local community.
Portsmouth Football Club have teamed up with Pompey in the Community, to put this fundraising initiative in place with all proceeds funding programmes to support our community and aid the recovery from the pandemic. The Pompey Supporters’ Trust first came up with the idea having seen how successful similar virtual fundraising schemes have been elsewhere and with all Pompey fans now having received their ticket refunds from last years postponed final, it was thought that now would be a good time to launch the scheme.
Money raised will be used to support Pompey’s critical COVID-19 response services in Portsmouth and the surrounding area. This will help to tackle some of the region’s biggest challenges including rising food poverty levels, increased social isolation, poor mental health and rising unemployment.
So back Pompey, and back your community today! Your support really will make a life-changing difference to the lives of thousands in our community.
Since the first lockdown in March 2020 Pompey in the Community have:
- Delivered over 6,000 food parcels to vulnerable residents
- Provided 174 care packages to the over 60s
- Delivered over 160 hour of Zoom workshops
- Cooked and distributed over 4,000 hot meals
- Over 150 hours of welfare visits
- Delivered cooking workshops to over 1,200 participants
As we move into the Covid-19 recovery phase, PitC are working with local partners to provide employability workshops, increase mental health awareness and activities that will re-engage our community and help revitalise our city.
Just £10 will help provide a food package for a family or a care package for a socially isolated older person, while £15 will help teach a family to cook on a budget or provide someone out of work with the critical skills they need to progress back into employment.
Fans can get their hands on the beautifully designed tickets from as little as £5 for an e-ticket, with personalised printed keepsakes available from £15. Businesses can also get involved by purchasing a virtual hospitality package for £150 for 10 tickets to give to colleagues or clients.
