This year, The SFP Trust and The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust (KFCT) set-up a new innovative IT and Sustainability fund to support Quality-Mark accredited community clubs who were interested in using technology to aid their growth and development.
Grants of £500 will be awarded to part-fund the start-up costs of web-based club management systems which are designed to enable real financial, resourcing and administrative benefits, addressing many of the challenges club volunteers face on a day to day basis.
Bo’ness United Community F.C. recently received an award for ‘My Club Hub’ which is the club management system they have chosen to enhance their ongoing growth, development, sustainability, communication and governance strategies. Peter Hay, Chairman of the Community Club commented “We were delighted to receive funding from The Scottish Football Partnership Trust and The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust to allow Bo’ness United Community Football Club (BUCFC) the opportunity to upgrade the IT system within our club. The “My Club Hub” platform will allow BUCFC to have a state of the art on-line digital system to support the club to administer all the unseen work digitally and efficiently which in turn will free up volunteers’ valuable time to support the children of the club play the beautiful game. Again this could not have taken place without the support of the SFPT and the KFCT – a very exciting time for Bo’ness United Community Football Club.”
