Cheltenham Town have distributed money from the FA Community Shield to three local charities.Three local charities have been handed a boost by Cheltenham Town courtesy of the FA Community Shield.
LINC, the Oakley Neighbourhood Project and St. Vincent's & St George's Association were all handed cheques of £600 or more by Robins chairman Paul Baker on the final matchday of the season.
The money has come direct from the FA Community Shield which raises money through ticket and programme sales which is then distributed out to Football League clubs. The clubs then make the decision on where the money is donated within the local area.
LINC is a cancer charity that offers support to patients and families affected by leukaemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers. You can learn more about this fantastic charity here: www.lincfund.org.
The Oakley Neighbourhood Project is a charity which aims to improve the local community and remains a close partner with Cheltenham Town Football Club due to Whaddon Road being in the heart of their area.

St. Vincent's & St George's Association are a local charity that offers a range of services to clients with a range of disabilities in and around Gloucestershire. Learn more about the work they do at the official website: www.stvsandstgs.org.uk
On behalf of the entire club we would like to thank all three charities for the fantastic work they continue to do in Gloucestershire. We hope the money goes a long way to helping you grow.
