Last year, The SFP Trust and The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust (KFCT) set-up a new innovative Club 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 have been 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.
Gala Fairydean Rovers F.C. Community Trust from the Scottish borders are the latest club to receive 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. Graeme McIver, the club’s Secretary commented; “The Gala Fairydean Rovers FC Community Trust is delighted to have been in receipt of the Club IT and Sustainability Award from The Scottish Football Partnership Trust which has assisted us in establishing a relationship with the My Club Hub (MCH) app. The Community Trust chose MCH in order to help and support our volunteers in the management of the Trust as it continues to grow. The app makes it much easier to organise and communicate with our membership as well as managing finance, fundraising, sponsorship and e-commerce. It has also allowed us to establish a website and manage volunteer resources. The Trust is most grateful to both The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust and The SFP Trust for their support.”
