Swindon Supermarine Football Club have announced the creation of the Swindon Supermarine Sports & Education Trust, a wholly charitable trust based in the Club’s Webbswood Stadium in South Marston, North-East Swindon.
Its first action as a Trust is to open a new, purpose-built £85,000 community facility at its WebbsWood Stadium. Swindon Supermarine Sports & Education Trust has already received the backing of the local business community with an essential £50,000 funding boost from The Hills Group Limited, which enabled the Trust to begin building work at the beginning of November 2016. The funding has been made available through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), which is administered for Hills by Community First, the Rural Community Council for Wiltshire.
The non-league football club’s purpose is to make use of its extensive facilities to host a wide range of community activities aimed at tackling social, health and education needs in and around Swindon and Wiltshire.
The new building will be available for the community to use at least 150 days a year, in addition to the programmes to be offered by the Swindon Supermarine Sports & Education Trust.
The official launch day will be Friday 5th May 2017.
