CITY Community Trust
Our friends over at CITY Community Trust have recently launched a new programme designed to help people make contact with old friends and new, or perhaps take up a new activity whilst so much is still on pause due to the pandemic.
The programme offers a range of ways to get involved including signing up to be a Grecian Pen Pal and writing a letter to a junior supporter about your time as an ECFC supporter, some exciting upcoming virtual activities and even the chance for supporters aged 60 and over to get themselves a FREE Exeter City Activity Box.
The Exeter City Activity Box is full of free gifts and things to do, including:
- An exclusive ECFC face mask - A letter from Matt Taylor - A vintage ECFC programme from a previous match - Tea, coffee, and hot chocolate - Sports quizzes, puzzles, and games - An ‘Active at Home’ guide
To get one of these fantastic activity boxes for yourself, a family member, a neighbour, or friend, go to www.exetercct.org/ECFCBOX or phone 07716 279507.
Jamie Vittles, Chief Executive of Exeter CITY Community Trust, said “we’re really pleased to be able to offer a little more support to ECFC supporters at this difficult time. We’re all seeing our friends and family a little less at the moment, so we hope that our activity boxes give older supporters something to do whilst at home and that all Exeter City fans get involved with our Grecian Pen Pals scheme, our upcoming virtual events, and other parts of this exciting programme.”
For information about Grecian Pen Pals, upcoming virtual events, and other parts of the programme, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07716 279507.
New Partnership Announced
As part of the Trust's commitment to supporting the local community, we are delighted to be working with and supporting Exeter Community Initiatives for the 2020/21 season and beyond.
ECI was first founded in 1991 as the Palace Gate Project and has gone on to create 25 new community projects, including 10 that are now operating as independent charities or community initiatives. This dynamic charity works in Exeter and across Devon to help people facing poverty, inequality and homelessness get their lives back on track. This is achieved by involving people in community projects to improve their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, increase their sense of belonging and provide skills to help them succeed in life.

In case you missed the news, any contested election of the Trust Board will now include the facility for members to vote online using the Election Runner platform.
Following the Trust Review and recommendations from the membership, the 2020 Trust Board Election will be the first to use electronic voting, should a contested election be required.
