True Shrew challenge launched to raise moneyShrewsbury Town Community Sports Trust has teamed up with Hope House Children’s hospice and today launched the ‘True Shrew’ challenge.
The aim of the True Shrew challenge is to engage supporters of the football club and hospice in a number of events to raise £20,000 for the two charities by the end of the 2014/15 season.
Hope House Children’s Hospice offer specialist nursing care and support to terminally ill children, young people and their families from Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales.
Shrewsbury Town Community Sports Trust is a community development programme working with Shrewsbury Town Football Club, delivering to a range of different communities and age groups across Shropshire.
CST manager Jamie Edwards said: "The football club has historically supported Hope House for a number of years now, the hospice offers an unbelievable service to children in Shropshire and surrounding counties and we are proud to be able to support them.
"The events of the True Shrew challenge are a great way for our supporters to enjoy and in some cases challenge themselves while raising funds for the Hospice and Community Sports Trust."
Hope House Fundraiser Lynsey Kilvert said: “We are so grateful for the fantastic support we already receive from Shrewsbury Town FC and are thrilled to be partnered up with Shrewsbury Town Community Sports Trust.
"The True Shrew challenge is a great way for everyone to get involved and help make a difference in the local community."
