Community: Robins coaches visit Holy Trinity Primary School

27 November 2018

The Cheltenham Town Community Trust visited Holy Trinity Primary School last Friday through the Premier League Primary Stars project.

Members of the Community Trust and club mascot Whaddney the Robin gave an assembly based on 'playing the right way' - teaching children ten positive behaviour traits. 

The purpose of which is to inspire children to adopt positive attitudes and behaviours when playing and following football. 

Primary Stars coach Sean Hall said: "It was great to see all the children engage with the assembly.

"We looked at the four main Primary Stars values, to be inspiring, be connected, be fair and be ambitious. All the children recieved a free ticket voucher for the Grimsby game in December."

225 ticket vouchers were handed out in total, as part of the initiative to get 5,000 children through the gates at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium this season.

The visit took place a day before the Robins took on Newport County in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday, which saw a record number of children attending a single match as a result of the Community Trust's work.

In total at least 270 children and adults attended Michael Duff's first league home victory in a packed Family Section, located in the Colin Farmer Stand. 

The tickets redeemed were given out after Community Trust coaches helped referee at the Albert Dix football tournament in late October, which you can read about by clicking here.
