Our upcoming home match against Fulham has been selected as the club’s seasonal Tigers Trust matchday in which we highlight the fantastic work the Trust does for the community.
The Tigers Sport and Education Trust is a charity which aims to make a difference to people’s lives by involving them in sport. Through their work the Trust promote the values linked with sporting success and help up-skill people in the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire region through practical activity. Involvement in community sport projects can help tackle a wide range of issues including health, youth crime and unemployment, with the aim of creating inspired and integrated communities living healthy and happy lives.
This is a landmark year for the Trust as they celebrate 30 years since the charity was founded in 1992, and to celebrate the Trust will be a huge part of the matchday activities around the stadium.
There will be a Tigers Trust special edition matchday programme, which will include the Trust being given the squad number 30 to celebrate their milestone. Videos showcasing the various programmes and campaigns that the Trust operate will be shown on the big screens before kick-off and half-time, as well as messaging on crowd facing LED screens throughout the match.
Players from Kirkella St. Andrews and South Hunsley, who are going on to represent the Trust in the EFL Kids Cup and EFL Girls Cup respectively, will also be presented to the crowd alongside representatives from Tigers Trust ahead of kick-off.
Ahead of Saturday’s match against league leaders Fulham we are encouraging all supporters to donate to the Trust if they are in a position to do so, to ensure they can carry on providing the community with the support which makes such a difference to people’s lives.
Supporters can donate £3 to Tigers Trust by texting TT30YEARS to 70085, or by clicking the button below to donate online.
Commenting about the planned activity, Tigers Trust Chief Executive Catherine Bishop said “Since joining the Trust in April 2019, this is our first ‘take over’ day which I have been so excited about. The journey for the Trust over the past three years has been an important one, in addition to growing our partnerships we have continued to respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by the pandemic. I am incredibly proud to be able to showcase some of our work and say a huge thank you to the amazing Trust team, all of our supporters, our Trustees and Hull City for making this happen”.
