Exeter City and CITY Community Trust, along with all other EFL Clubs, are coming together today (Tuesday, March 10) to highlight the positive impact football has in changing people’s lives and the work taking place to tackle some of society’s biggest issues.
Just one of the activities CITY Community Trust will be hosting is a practical session at Ladysmith Primary School in Exeter, where the coaches will provide a practical cricket match for three year five classes.
To check out what CCT get up to on a daily basis, and the activities they are providing for the EFL Day of Action, please check out their Twitter feed at: @ExeterCCT
CITY Community Trust are Exeter’s leading health and wellbeing charity working in partnership with Exeter City FC.
They deliver inspiring physical activity, education, health and wellbeing programmes and courses primarily across Devon and Somerset for all members of the community regardless of ethnicity, age, gender, physical ability, background or economic status.
A full-time staff of more than 30 people and a casual staff of more than 70 (supported by around 25 volunteers) are delivering on the frontline daily, spending around 22,000 hours out in the community every year striving to improve life chances for all, often in the most deprived areas of Greater Exeter and among the most disadvantaged groups in our society.
While football is our beating heart, their work in the community has grown to extend far beyond. CCT programmes reach more than 45,000 members of our community each year and around 48% of our work is not football-related. The spread of their work is growing all the time.
