Blues fans have been digging deep to raise money for Pompey in the Community and help them continue to support the local community with their Covid-19 recovery effort.
Supporters can purchase a commemorative ticket for the postponed 2020 Papa John’s Trophy final against Salford, which takes place behind closed doors at Wembley on Saturday (3pm kick-off).
An initial fundraising target of £5,000 was set and thanks to generous donations from the Fratton faithful, we are more than halfway to reaching that target.
E-tickets are available for just £5 each, with a commemorative personalised and printed version – that will be sent out after the final – priced £15.
Businesses can also get involved by buying a virtual hospitality package for £150, which consists of 10 tickets to give to colleagues or clients.
Since the first lockdown a year ago – and working in partnership with other local organisations – PitC have:
- Delivered more than 6,000 food parcels to vulnerable residents
- Provided 174 care packages to the over 60s
- Delivered more than 160 hours of Zoom workshops
- Cooked and distributed more than 4,000 hot meals
- Made more than 150 hours of welfare visits
- Delivered cooking workshops to more than 1,200 participants
Money raised will be used to support the critical Covid-19 response services in Portsmouth and the surrounding area, helping to tackle some of the region’s biggest challenges, including rising food poverty levels, increased social isolation, poor mental health and rising unemployment.
