Grantham Town to give away over 1,000 match tickets to coronavirus volunteers
The Gingerbreads are to give away over 1,000 match tickets to volunteers who have given up their time to help others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To the volunteer groups who are registered with SKDC's Community Hub, the football club will give 20 match tickets to each group for next season, when authorities deem that footballing activities are safe to take place.
Grantham Town Vice-chairman Sophie Cope "We've been trying to see how we can give something back to those who have helped our community during the pandemic.
"When we saw that SKDC were honouring the groups, we instantly thought this is a small gesture to say thank you.
"We're happy for them to use them how they want, if it's for the volunteers themselves to have an afternoon at a game, or as part of a fundraising prize."
The tickets will be distributed through SKDC.
Kelham Cooke, Leader of South Kesteven District Council said "It is a hugely generous gesture offer from the football club; it really is appreciated.
"The groups and the volunteers within them have been amazing in their support for people in need over the past few months."
The tickets will be sent out when the football club know when the next season is to start. This means that if SKDC recognise more groups, more tickets will be given away.
