GTSET Building Stronger Communities

Grimsby Town Sport and Education Trust Building Stronger Communities

Grimsby Town Sports and Education Trust has won a funding award in connection with an initiative called Building Stronger Communities. The Sports and Education Trust is working with GTFC and a local social enterprise, The Equality Practice and other organisations to help us look at difference, to see what differences there are in our community.  We want all people who ever they are, whatever they look like, to feel they can come and enjoy a game, here at GTFC.

Director Philip Day commented “GTFC are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and are actively working towards satisfying the EFL Equality Code of Practice. The work being done by the Sports and Education Trust will assist in reaching the standards required by the EFL.”

At Saturday’s game, you may be stopped by a person wanting to ask you a few questions about how you feel about GTFC and differences at our ground. Please assist if you are approached to answer the questions. It will only take you a couple of minutes.

This is the beginning of a six-month programme of activities that will explore different sorts of entertainment at our home matches.  This is kicked off on Saturday by ‘The Sambalada Band’.  Samba drumming has its roots in Brazilian rhythm, fused with a head full of skateboard punk rock, led by Grimsby’s uber prolific spoon carver, Ian Rigall.  Make Sambalada a kick off to behold.  It’s loud, it’s fast.  Be prepared!  This is Samba drumming with a Grimsby accent!
