Can we do something for the community?
Blues Trust aims to promote a good relationship between fans, club and community and we tend to concentrate on the relationship between fans and club. I think that’s because we’ve thought we don’t have the active membership or resources to do much for the community. And it’s true that we probably couldn’t do something like collecting food for a food bank as fans of some clubs do.
But we could adopt a charity and provide some publicity for it and I think I know one that might be worth supporting. It’s the Geoff Horsfield Foundation; which was set up to provide quality, safe and secure supported accommodation for vulnerable adults within the West Midlands Area. It helps tackle homelessness, a problem that is on the increase.
I’d like to discuss this idea of mine during the informal discussion at the end of our AGM and find out if members would like Blues Trust to adopt a charity. If you would like to express your opinion on this please come to our AGM this Saturday, at 11 am in the Deritend Training Room at St Martin in the Bull Ring, or email me.
