Together has donated £10,000 to Stockport County Football Club’s charity campaign to provide food vouchers for children.

Mark Stott, owner of Stockport Country Football Club has said he intends to raise a total of £220,000 through a combination of club shop sales, corporate sponsors and donations from fans.

The football club has partnered with Sector 3, a Stockport-based charity, which brings together voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sectors and is raising funds to be distributed to those in need.

Furthermore, Together has outlined that it will be the club’s official finance partner for the 2020/21 season.

The partnership includes the creation of a schools initiative, ‘County Together’, which will deliver a roadshow educating primary school children on topics including healthy eating, regular exercise and the importance of good behaviour.

Marc Goldberg, commercial chief executive of Together, said: “It’s heartbreaking to think that children are at risk of going hungry over Christmas and this is a fantastic initiative by Stockport County to put food on the tables of vulnerable families who may also be struggling financially due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“As a Stockport-based business, we’re proud to be involved in this important campaign, which feeds into our own company values.

“It will improve this year’s holiday celebrations for people in our community and I would urge my colleagues at Together and our partners to back County’s Food for Christmas appeal.

“I’m sure that, working together, we can make this happen.”

Stott added: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Marc Goldberg and Together for such a generous donation towards our food for Christmas campaign.

“We are delighted that our corporate partners share our community values and recognise the needs of families in the local area this Christmas.”
