Hello and Farewell
The Charity are delighted to announce that Andrew Clayton has agreed to become a Trustee, Andrew has all the experience required to push the charity forward, and we look forward to working with him.
However we sadly say farewell to Carol Finnigan as a Trustee, Carol has been with us from the start and we thank her for her outstanding services, she hasn't gone completely though, as she will still be working with us, as our Safeguarding Officer.
Robins Recycling Shows GR8 Teamwork
Community news this week out of Hurst Cross displayed a great team effort to provide some furniture to local families. Ashton United Co-Chairman David Burke was replacing two, two-seater settees in his home and called upon Ashton United in the Community to find a ‘home’ for each. The community team utilised their local contacts and quickly found two families that would benefit from the gift.
How do we shift them was the next problem? Up stepped Paul Marr, Managing Director of club kit suppliers, GR8 Sports, who offered his own time and transport to make sure two families received an early Christmas present.
Ashton United is a family, not just a football club, a family that embraces its community and recognises that, in these difficult times we should all pull together. Importantly our charity partner and suppliers hold similar values.
