Brabners help Chester FC Community Trust gain Charitable Status

Brabners help Chester FC Community Trust gain Charitable Status

Monday 11th September 2017

Brabners Liverpool based Charity team were instructed to act for the Trust, providing governance advice and overseeing the registration with the Charity Commission. 

The organisation aims to improve the lives of people living in Chester and the surrounding areas, which makes this achievement a significant milestone for the Trust.

The Trust was established in 2013 and is completely independent from the supporter-owned Club.
It aims to deliver high quality football and physical activity, education programmes, social inclusion provision and many different health and wellbeing projects to people of ages and abilities in Chester and Cheshire West.

This is an exciting opportunity for the Trust as it will provide it with the chance to have an even greater impact in the community in future, providing access to new grant funding and developing further fundraising options.

Graeme Hughes, Associate at Brabners’ Liverpool office comments:

“Having supported Chester since the 1990s (the days of Stuart Rimmer, Chris Priest, Iain Jenkins et al), it has been a real pleasure to assist the Trust in securing charitable status which should hopefully open up a range of opportunities for additional funding that will enable the Trust to develop and expand upon its activities.

The Charities Team at Brabners acts for a number of charitable foundations associated with professional sports clubs. The profile of the clubs is very helpful in enabling the charities to establish themselves but committed and independent trustees and staff are vital for the ongoing develop and future success of the charity.

I wish Jim Green and the team at the Trust all the best”
