£35,000 For Lincoln City Sport and Education Trust

The Lincoln City Sport and Education Trust will get two cheques totalling £35,000 from the Football Conference Trust, during the half-time interval of the Yellow socks (have you got yours in memory of Keith yet?) match against Macclesfield Town on Saturday.

Brian Lee, Chairman of both the Football Conference Trust  and the Football Conference, will hand Richard Cooper £15,000 towards a project called “Prime Time” aimed at improving the health and fitness of the over 50s, plus another £20,000 towards a new project called “Lasting IMPressions” which will allow the Trust to deliver a programme of activities for those with physical and mental disabilities.

The Football Conference Trust charity grant funding programme has been made possible due to the generous support of the Premier League and the Professional Footballers Association.  The two parties contribute £400,000 each, per year, over a three year period.    So far, over 50 Conference clubs have benefitted from a grant support programme that will eventually see £2.4 million distributed to non-league clubs.
