This 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 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.
Kennoway Star Hearts F.C. 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. Club Secretary, Calum Doctor said “Without the help and assistance of The Scottish Football Partnership Trust we would not have been able to utilise My Club Hub. From start to finish Stuart and his team were nothing but helpful. They were only a phone call away and helped every step of the way. It has now enabled us as a Club to move forward and continue to grow. We would like to record the thanks of all at Kennoway Star Hearts for the support of both The SFP Trust and The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust.”
