As we approach another season 1874 Northwich Community team are able to announce that our main charity partner for the coming 12 months will be
It has always been our aim to support our local charities, ensuring that as a club we can give as much back to the local community as possible.
From small beginnings THE JOSHUA TREE have grown to be an extremely important part of the support network in the North West for families going through the trauma of childhood cancer.
They provide practical and emotional support for children and their families, whether that be on a 1:1 basis or through group sessions.
Currently based in the centre of Northwich, they are poised to begin the construction of a bespoke support facility in the area and 1874 Northwich are looking forward to sharing that journey with them.
Along with THE JOSHUA TREE, the club will also be aiming to support another charity close to the hearts of many involved with 1874 Northwich F.C. and that charity is CRY or Cardiac Risk in the Young.
A national charity, but one with close links to the sporting community, we will be engaging with them and will be looking to run a number of fundraising and awareness sessions during the coming season.
The links with our charity partners are deep and lasting, and whilst our official collaboration with St Luke’s Hospice is coming to an end, as a club we have made many friends there and will continue providing support in whatever way we can as demonstrated by our provision of volunteer marshalls for the upcoming Midnight Walk and our future commitment to organising the Family Fun day at St Luke’s Barton Stadium.
