The new community team strips have been revealed and we hope to have them within the next month. Thank you to all of you who promoted and supported the sponsorship raffle. The winning sponsor was Autodoors Scotland and their logo will feature on all boys' and girls' strips from our new 2012 team through to the walking football and para squads.
We will be arranging a whole Trust photograph one evening and will get a date for this to you as soon as we have a confirmed date from the Well Shop for strips. We hope to have all coaches and players together for this.
All sponsors have been invited to join us in the box for the Dundee fixture on 3 November. There are sponsor boards in the box and two large banners for the Astro. We will continue to highlight the work of all sponsors and hope that you will too.
Presentation evenings will take place at Club 100 on 11th and 18th January. These will be for all teams except the 11-a-side teams whose season has not yet ended. Full details will be sent out in the next week. The events are being organised by the fundraising committee, we are happy to add volunteers to that committee so please get in touch if that is of interest to you. Further details of these events will be circulated in the next couple of weeks.
We have lined up an exciting new project for the in-service day on November 19: an Academy experience day. For just £20 your child can come along to Fir Park, be coached by Academy coaches, receive a talk about fitness and nutrition then enjoy lunch at the club. The afternoon will involve further coaching and bounce games. It's a unique opportunity to experience Academy life. Registration is on the website.
Community Teams will also be doing a can collection at the St Mirren fixture on 22 December. The more youngsters involved the more we raise. Over the past 12 months can collections have enabled us to purchase new equipment, pay for tournaments and coach education.
Finally you might have noticed that our coaches and parent helpers recently attended a safeTALK course organised by North Lanarkshire Suicide Prevention. Sadly our community has seen a number of young people take their own lives recently and we must all work hard to support young people in time of need. Our volunteers will be provided with winter jackets with "You Can Talk To Me" on the back.
Thank you again for your ongoing support of the Trust, our activities and volunteers,
