This week at Glow we’re saying a huge thank you to Stoke City Football Club and Stoke City Community Trust after they donated a number of TVs to our Newcastle-under-Lyme refuge this summer.
Stoke City Community Trust is the official charity of Stoke City Football Club and the Club’s way of giving back to its community.
The Trust uses the power and passion of the Football Club’s assets to make a positive difference to the health, wellbeing and life outcomes of everyone that engages in their programmes and activities.
Sessions provide wonderful platforms to reduce barriers, all whilst promoting equality, diversion and inclusion in the community.
The generous team are also committed to supporting local organisations and charities, just like us!
At Glow, we support a number of families fleeing domestic abuse across Staffordshire in our safe accommodation refuges and community-based accommodation.
We give them a safe place to stay and lots of tailored support to help them work towards their next chapter.
When families leave refuge and move into a place of their own, they often have to start from scratch and source furniture, crockery, cutlery, home décor and lots more. A TV is often very low on their list of priorities.
This means that Stoke City’s incredible donation will make such a difference and really help them turn their new house into a home as soon as they move in.
Service Manager at our Newcastle refuge, Vicki, said: “Having a TV is something that we all probably take for granted, but when our customers move on, it’s something that is unaffordable and not a priority.
“We’re so grateful for the donation from Stoke City and can’t thank them enough for their support. The TV’s will make such a difference to our customers as they move on from refuge and start their next chapters. They’ll really help make their new houses feel like homes.”
Stoke City’s Head of Community, Adrian Hurst, said: “Not having access to a TV or a device to stream TV is something many of us will never face, but some of the families Glow are supporting are starting again with nothing.
“Following the refurbishment of the bet365 Stadium and the various upgrades we have made we were only too glad to make sure that the TVs ended up with people that really needed them.”
