Sevenoaks Town FC has prided itself on providing for the local community to serve and assist those in the local area.
In March, the football season came to an abrupt end. In the unprecedented months that have followed, the club has had to re-focus, re-plan and re-model in order to find our feet again. Following every step of Government and FA guidance, we were able to get back playing again in June.
Throughout lockdown and as measures have eased, our committee have recognised the need for the club to support those who need our help the most. One of the clear areas to focus upon was local business. As a club, we want to be there for the people living, working and socialising in the area and have devised and a proud to launch a new scheme we hope you’ll support and get involved with.
Support Sevenoaks is our campaign set up to help local businesses get back on their feet. We have created a Support Sevenoaks card which is free a loyalty scheme. If you make a purchase at stores and services who are a part of the scheme, you’ll receive a stamp of thanks.
Once your Support Sevenoaks card is full of stamps, you can use it to gain free entry to a First Team games during the 2020/21 season, when crowds are allowed to return. You simply bring the fully stamped card along to your chosen game and present at the turnstile.
And if for whatever reason, you don’t want to use your card to attend a game, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and an upload of your complete card and we will donate the equivalent of the match day entry to a local charity.
Club Chairman, Paul Lansdale hopes the scheme will further incentivise local people to support businesses in the area.
“I am extremely proud to be launching our Support Sevenoaks initiative. The scheme was devised by us as a club because we know just how important local provision and services are. We take great pride in our identity and the area we are a part of. We know first-hand, how challenging the past few months have been. The impact of Covid19 on businesses and organisations of all shapes and sizes has been huge. We want to help these businesses, their owners and employees find their feet again.”
“We hope the idea is something those involved with the football club alongside residents and the businesses of Sevenoaks itself can get behind. Businesses can get in touch with us to be a part of Support Sevenoaks and we will equip them with the materials, the card and branding required. The Eat Out to Help Out scheme finishes at the end of the month, whereas this card will be in operation by us throughout the 2020/21 season and maybe even beyond if it proves to be valuable and enjoyed by people living, working and visiting Sevenoaks.
