Ahead of the upcoming national lockdown on Thursday 5th November, Derby County Community Trust is ceasing delivery of all sessions outside of school and education delivery until Wednesday 2nd December.

The Community Trust will continue to work with their education partners to ensure the highest standard of teaching is maintained throughout this time and continue to support their schools’ network with a range of ongoing projects.

Please Note: Even if you/your child are of school age, should sessions take place outside of school they will not be running until 2nd December at the earliest.

Like the initial lockdown, the Community Trust will look to launch a fully digital timetable to keep all participants entertained and information will be shared as soon as possible regarding this timetable.

The club’s ‘Stay Safe. Stay Fit. Stay Connected.’ campaign will continue to support families and individuals in need across the city. Weekly food drops will be reinstated at Pride Park Stadium as the current donation point within DCFCMegastore will also be closed. More details will be circulated in the coming days across Community Trust and club channels.

There will be a wealth of opportunities for participants old and new to engage and while the Community Trust will miss physical delivery, their team have no doubt that they will continue to keep each other in good spirits throughout this period of uncertainty.

If you have an existing booking made between 5th November-2nd December you may request a refund by contacting the Community Trust on [email protected].

If you are happy to donate this fee, it will be used to support the ‘Stay Safe. Stay Fit. Stay Connected.’ campaign and those in need through the excellent partnership with the city’s food banks.

Please note this will not apply to after school club bookings which are still valid and TIPs bookings which will be transferred once sessions can resume.

More information on all aspects of the Community Trust’s new virtual timetable and food donations will be released by next week on DerbyCountyCommunityTrust.com.

As ever, if you need any support then Community Trust staff members are a phone call away and will aim to help in whatever way they can.

Please stay safe and the Community Trust team look forward to seeing you on a screen near you soon!
