Tom Gorringe visits the ‘Extra Time Club’
On Tuesday morning Bristol Rovers CEO Tom Gorringe took some time to visit our Extra Time Club, a social group for those over the age of 65, at The Memorial Stadium. This was a fantastic opportunity for members of the club to meet with Tom and to take part in a Q&A session where they could ask any questions they had about the club.
The visit was a great success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Tom was very engaging and took the time to answer all the questions that were asked of him. He spoke about his own experiences working within the football industry and shared some insights into the work that goes on behind the scenes at Bristol Rovers.
The Extra Time Club is just one of the many initiatives that are run by the Bristol Rovers Community Trust. The Trust is a registered charity that works with the local community to help promote health and wellbeing, encourage education and learning, and to provide opportunities for people to engage with sport and physical activity.
The Trust has been working closely with Bristol Rovers for many years and has helped to develop a number of different projects that have had a positive impact on the local community. These include things like coaching sessions for young people, education and training opportunities for adults, and social programmes for the elderly.
The visit by Tom Gorringe to the Extra Time Club is a great example of the importance of collaboration between Bristol Rovers and the Community Trust.
Tom said, “It was a pleasure to meet the members of the Community Trust Extra Time club on Tuesday morning. It’s incredibly important for the football club to engaging with all members of our community and we’re always happy to support the work that the Community Trust do.”
Community Trust CEO Adam Tutton said, “I’d personally like to thank Tom for spending some time with our Extra Time club on Tuesday morning. This demonstrates once again how Bristol Rovers and the Community Trust can work continue to work collaboratively
