It has been a launch week to remember for Pompey in the Community and the Emirates Spinnaker Tower.
Both organisations have worked tirelessly to promote this ground-breaking partnership, which sees Pompey in the Community (PitC) become the official charity of the Spinnaker Tower for 2018.
Representatives from the Spinnaker Tower were at Fratton Park to watch Tuesday’s match against Blackburn and were presented on the side of the pitch before the game.
The Life and Chimes group then visited the attraction the following day to take in the sights of the city.
Then, on Thursday, Blues starts Brandon Haunstrup and Adam May – accompanied by Nelson and the League Two trophy – paid a visit to meet fans and staff.
The partnership will see the Emirates Spinnaker Tower support the work of Portsmouth Football Club’s charity, which empowers thousands of people across the city through sport, education, health and community projects.
The tower will host fundraising activities and collect donations towards PitC’s award-winning work throughout the year.
Tony Sammut, general manager at Emirates Spinnaker Tower, said: “We are thrilled to support the excellent work of Pompey in the Community, whose projects benefit people of all ages and backgrounds from across Portsmouth.
“This partnership is a perfect example of how organisations can work together to enhance our great city and make a difference in our community.”
Adam Lea, PitC head of marketing, added: “The partnership is a real indication of how highly regarded the charity, as well as the football club, are within the local community.
“By partnering with the Spinnaker Tower, new opportunities and initiatives can be created that will ultimately benefit the people of Portsmouth and the surrounding areas.
“This last week of activities has been a clear sign of the potential on offer and we as an organisation are looking forward to the adventures that lie ahead.”
