Gillingham Football Club set to part ways with trust

By Amy Nickalls

Gillingham Football Club will end its relationship with its community trust at the end of October.

Trustees were unable to agree on new terms with the club and as a result will leave the stadium on October 31 but its work will continue.

Gillingham Football Club Community Trust was set up in 2008 to raise funds and deliver schemes to support the local community including providing PE sessions in schools, helping young people build a career in teaching and helping people into work.

Chief executive Adam Lawrence said trustees will now work on a rebranding and hope to broaden the trust’s remit in helping the community.

He added: “It is important that the charity continues to support the local community, and act with public benefit at its heart.

“The trustees and staff team will be working hard to ensure that as many of our projects as possible can still be delivered, and that we can continue to work with all of our service users under our new banner. ”

Chairman Paul Scally set up a new comapny on August 21 called Gillingham Community Trust Limited.

However, Gillingham Football Club have not yet made a comment despite being contacted.
