A special thanks to A34 Winchester Manchester City Supporters branch

A34 Winchester Manchester City Supporters branch, an official Manchester City Supporters Club have kindly chosen to support Trinity through match day ticket sales, raising £750 in their first year!

The Club felt strongly about finding a local charity to support through their match days and as such, introduced a £1 levy on all tickets ordered through the branch. Over the 2017/18 season, this raised £415, whilst the club topped the total up to £450.

We also send a special thanks to the governing Manchester City Supporters Club, located at Etihad Stadium, who generously match funded the clubs donation, raising the total value to £750.

Trinity would like to thank everyone involved at the A34 Winchester Manchester City Supporters branch for choosing  to support us this year and for many more years to come; we’d like to take this opportunity to welcome the branch to Trinity’s long term supporters.

For more information on the club, please visit their website here.

Fulflood Ball raises £17,029.39

The Fulflood Ball have raised £17,000 for Trinity to continue to provide Saturday morning breakfast for people who are sleeping rough. This service, along with others that we offer, is crucial for our clients, and donations such as this ensure we can continue to offer a hot and nutritious breakfast on Saturdays.

We are extremely grateful to the Fulflood Ball committee for selecting Trinity to benefit from this fantastic event, and for raising vital funds to support the homeless and other vulnerable people. This was a truly special event for Trinity and we are very thankful to all the sponsors and supporters who made it possible.
