Who is your Fan of the Season?

Following the success in previous years, Trust in Yellow is pleased to say that it is again running a Fan of the Season competition.

We want to recognise a supporter who has made that special extra effort to give loyal support to the players and team this season.

So this is not just about those fantastic people who give hours of their time in voluntary work for the club and we are sure the club has ways of recognising their efforts.

Our Fan of the Season competition is for any supporter who has gone that extra mile this season in following and supporting their team.

Do you know someone who you think has shown a special passion for the club? Is there someone within the Southport FC fan community who is an unsung hero deserving recognition?

If you know such a person then let us know. Email fans@trustinyellow.com, telling us in no more than 150 words why you think he or she should win this award.

Alternatively you can hand in your nomination at the Trust office.

The closing date is Saturday April 16.

Once we have received all the entries the Trust board will decide on the winner who will receive their trophy at the end of season presentation evening when the various players’ awards are given out.

Trust in Yellow Community Food Partnership

Southport Soup Kitchen - Saturday 16th April 2016

One of the main goals of any supporters’ trust is to be fully involved in the local community.

After a request from a Trust in Yellow member, it was decided that a great way of doing this would be by organising a collection for the Southport Soup Kitchen which is based on London Street in the town centre.

This very worthy cause provides food and warmth to the local homeless population as well as distributing meals and hampers to vulnerable people within the Southport Community.

On Saturday April 16 at the match against Lincoln City, the Trust will be co-ordinating a collection of any donations of food that you may have spare in your cupboards.

There will be a couple of collection points at the turnstiles or you can just bring your donations directly to the Trust office.

 

How can I help?....

The Soup Kitchen is looking for two types of donation.

1) Weekly at the Soup Kitchen they need tea, coffee, biscuits, cakes, sugar, and condiments such as ketchup or brown sauce.

2) For the families they support they need basics to create meals, such as pasta, sauces, tins of vegetables, soup, tins of meat or pies, and fresh fruit, butter/spread, cake or biscuits.

Any items however, large or small will be very welcome. So get looking in those cupboards.

Donations will be accepted in the Trust office at all matches between now and the Lincoln game.

No match updates service from Grimsby

We know how much fans value the club’s match updates service supported by the Trust. We currently have one or two issues which are now in the process of being resolved but unfortunately this won’t be in time for Tuesday’s match at Grimsby. We apologise to supporters for that and aim to resume normal service as soon as possible.

Trust in Yellow supports Sign for Life

Trust In Yellow is proud to support a new organ donation campaign, Sign for Life.

From Saturday February 27 to Sunday March 13, NHS Blood and Transplant will be asking football fans to “join our team” and sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register to help save and improve lives.

Three people die each day in need of a transplant and there are currently around 7,000 people on the waiting list in the UK because of a shortage of organ donors.

There are simply not enough organs available, so football supporters are being asked to think about joining the register and then share their decision with friends and family.

A single organ donor can transform the lives of up to nine people! So if more people signed the register and their families then agreed to donate their loved one’s organs, more lives could be saved.

Following a hugely successful campaign last year supported by 27 clubs, foundations and organisations, NHS Blood and Transplant is aiming to get even more people talking about organ donation and taking action in 2016.

There are already a number of Premier League and Football League clubs on board to support the campaign including Chelsea, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers, Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield Wednesday, Peterborough, Dagenham & Redbridge and Notts County. Trust In Yellow would like to encourage Southport supporters to join the team.

How to get involved:

• Join the team: register as an organ donor at organdonation.nhs.uk/signforlife or call 0300 123 23 23

• Share your decision with your family, as NHS Blood and Transplant will need them to support donation going ahead

• Follow the campaign on social media using #signforlife

Ten-year badge presentation

Ahead of the recent home match against Braintree Town, a presentation took place for the winner of the competition to design a ten-year badge for Trust in Yellow.

To celebrate the Trust’s tenth anniversary in 2016 and a milestone year for the Trust, local school children were invited to design a special badge to be used during the year ahead.

The Trust was delighted to receive a total of 144 entries, which were narrowed down to a shortlist of 23 before supporters were asked to select the winner from four finalists.

The new badge is designed by Harriet James-Hodges, from Ainsdale St Johns Primary School, whose entry came out on top in a poll run during January.

Harriet was presented with a copy of her winning design and prizes at the recent home match against Braintree by Alan Spence, Southport’s all-time record goalscorer, and Trust chairman Martin Robinson.

Harriet’s design will be used as the Trust’s badge throughout the year and will be the focal point for the Trust’s ten-year celebrations.

The Trust would like to thank all the schools and children who took part. Not only did the number of entries received surpass expectations, but the quality of the designs was of the highest standard and choosing a shortlist and four finalists was a very difficult task.

It was clear from the entries that so many children had put a lot of time and thought into their designs, and the Trust was thrilled to see such enthusiasm for the competition.
