Frome Town Football Club is delighted to announce a new partnership with Fair Frome, a charity which works to help the most disadvantaged people in Frome and campaigns against inequality.
The initial agreement, effective from Season 2018/2019, will see the Fair Frome brand feature on the Frome Town shorts in all league and cup competition matches. Fair Frome helps people in the local community by offering practical support such as the Food Bank, the Furniture Bank, Community Lunches, "Holiday Hunger" lunches, and other projects designed to bring people together from different backgrounds and across generations to find common solutions. Frome Town F.C. will be working with Fair Frome throughout the season to support all initiatives with representation from the club at a variety of events. The club will continue to offer space within the clubs facilities to support Fair Frome.
In addition, both parties will be issuing a number of adult tickets for each home game to those who would not otherwise be able to attend a game (All children can attend all matches for free).
Jeremy Alderman, Chairman, Frome Town, said:
"We are delighted to have Fair Frome as a new partner. The work that Fair Frome conducts within our town is unbelievable and should never go unrecognised. Our club has a strong history of supporting local charity organisations and support groups. This partnership will become one of our main partnerships in line with our wider community plan. With the recent launch of ‘We are #BA11', the club will be more vocal about the successful projects we undertake in the local community during 18/19 season.”
Bob Ashford Chair of Fair Frome commented:
“We are really pleased to be entering this partnership with Frome Town. Fair Frome tries to meet the very high local need for our services by harnessing local resources. This ensures there is an awareness of local problems and that local people "own" both the problems and the solutions. The club has already been extremely supportive with our existing schemes and this takes the partnership to a new level."
