ITFC Charitable Trust has announced the appointment of their new Development Director – Nichola Whymark. Nichola has been taken on by the Trust with a key role as Fundraiser. Previously Nichola spent over six years with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
In her new post Nichola is already heavily involved developing a large fundraising event – The Big ITFC Zip. It’s a chance for you to Zip Wire across one of Suffolk’s most iconic landmarks – the home of ITFC and it’s taking place on Friday 13th, Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th July at Portman Road. Saturday 14th July is also a special Family Fun Day with free entry. There will be activities and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy from 9am until 5pm, featuring: ‘Crazee’ the Trust’s loveable mascot, Green Watch Fire Brigade, Inflatable Slide, Bungee Run, Gladiator Dual, Hexagol and Speedshot, Face Painting, Hook the Duck, Coconut Shy, Craft Stands, Refreshments, Stadium Tours and Treasure Hunt, Games and Town 102 with Nick Pandolfi and their mascot Cheeko the Monkey plus a special guest appearance from the Ipswich Town Mayor.
There is also a seven-a-side football tournament for U10s and U11s teams, with medals for all participants, sponsored by CSD. If you are interested in registering a team please call 0845 1369 333
To take part in this exhilarating zip wire experience and raise vital funds for the ITFC Charitable Trust all you need to do to secure your place is pledge £50 which you can raise as sponsorship and call the Zip booking hotline on 0844 801 1555. For sponsorship forms and event details please call Nichola on 01473 400744. www.thebigitfczip.co.uk
Nichola’s future plans as Development Director include enlisting an army of Trust volunteers. The charity, although supported by many people here in Suffolk, currently doesn’t have a core of dedicated volunteers to help on the fundraising side. “It’s an exciting opportunity for anyone who’d like to become involved with the Trust as I’m looking for a strong but varied group of people covering all abilities, ages and backgrounds to help in a myriad of activities all raising funds for the Trust.” explained Nichola, “I have witnessed first-hand how vital volunteers are to a charity’s survival.”
