Achieving goals together
Corporate Supporters of the Trust
Did you know? Since the launch of our charity over ten years ago we have helped over half a million people across Suffolk........ Since 1995 we’ve been making a positive impact on the lives of many thousands of people in our community.
As a charity we rely solely on public support, donations, corporate support, grants and funding. It costs approximately £1 million to run the charity each year. Although we work closely with Ipswich Town Football Club we are an independent charity and, as a result, are required to source our own funding. All forms of support and every donation to our charity are crucial in aiding us to continue with our good work across the county. Support from the general public is vital to our continuing success
We have a wide range of existing opportunities for local companies, large or small to promote their products and services, we are able to offer individual packages designed just for you!
There are so many ways in which you can become involved. If you are able to support us then we would like to hear from you.
Your company could make a real difference to help us create, happier, better educated and healthier human beings.
Help us to reduce, anti-social behavior, crime, stress and pressure on the NHS.
Meet our corporate supporters who have already become involved in helping us to make a difference:
“As a company we look to support those charities who benefit the youth of today as much as possible, the Trust came out top of our list as they represent several of the things we stand for.” “It’s a great partnership as their values fit in very well with some of our core values which include activating self esteem and supporting the local community.”
The Body Shop’s philosophy is looking good stems directly from feeling good. Where legislation allows, they encourage Body Shop employees to learn new skills through their Learning is of Value to Everyone (LOVE) initiative. By funding a range of training courses, events and health treatments, they aim to enhance their staff's sense of wellbeing.
As a company they also firmly believe that another way to feel good is by doing good. It's one of the reasons they have a global volunteering policy for all Body Shop staff, offering a minimum of three paid volunteering days a year. The Body Shop in Tavern Street Ipswich have jumped at this chance to make a difference, working the Trust both fundraising and volunteering for our various projects working with the young people of Suffolk.
Their support is crucial in helping us to raise much needed funds and we are delighted to be the Body Shop’s chosen charity. The Body Shop have pledged to help us, not only with fundraising, but also with promotional activities and volunteering too.
"CSD is pleased to be a partner of the ITFC Charitable Trust. The support that we have been able to give to the Trust has been largely due to our people getting involved in a number of fund raising activities resulting from our proactive partnership. We will continue to support the Trust, where we can, and its mission to encourage, inspire and educate the young people of Suffolk."

"The ITFC Chartiable Trust plays an essential part in our community and Subway is thrilled to be raising funds for such an important community project as this" said Roy. Raj added: " Whatever is raised will go straight to the ITFC Charitable Trust to help them continue their work in the community, so the more support we get, the better it is for the Trust."
Before any physical activity such as sport, nourishment is important. So it’s perhaps only natural that Ipswich's Queen Street and Nacton Road SUBWAY® Stores will be supporting The ITFC Charitable Trusts work with community youth football by donating 10p every time they sell from arange of selected Subs.
All the money raised will help finance budding young footballers who are with the ITFC Charitable Trust.
Roy Clouter the owner of the Queen Street SUBWAY® store and Raj Roa, owner of the Nacton Road, SUBWAY® Store are delighted to be supporting The ITFC Charitable Trust in this way until the end of the football season.
"The Trust does so much unsung work, it really is much more than just a provider of football coaching courses. We recognise the Trust as a vital charity within our local community and have been pleased to make vital donations throughout the last two years".
White Space is a full service marketing, design and PR agency based in Ipswich. We have just celebrated 10 years in business and during that time we've helped hundreds of local companies, both, large and small to communicate their messages clearly, concisely and creatively.
White Space have helped enormously to raise the profile of the Trust by creating and helping us through a rebranding process with their ‘Yes we’re a charity’campaign. Not only that but the team at White Space continually put on activities to fundraise for us and we are eternally grateful to them all.

We've been announced as Wild Tracks charity of the year - look out for plenty of exciting events soon to be announced.
WildTracks established their Charity of the Year in 2011. Their first charity was the Ormiston Children and Families' Trust, an Ipswich charity supporting vulnerable young people in East Anglia and last year it was Street Sports a charity providing free sport in our area. In their choice of charity they have elected to support a charity working in East Anglia and, if possible, dedicating most of their work towards the young. In making this choice WildTracks is recognising the resources at their disposal. They are a privately owned off road activity park able to offer local promotion and local fundraising.
Arabella Michell of Wild Tracks Offroad Activity Park explains why they have selected the Trust as their Charity of the year. ITFC Charitable Trust - Wild Tracks
We are very pleased that The Angel Inn and the Anchor Inn have joined us as corporate supporters for the ITFC Charitable Trust. Both of these destination dining restaurants have agreed to help us to fundraise by adding a 50p surcharge to their signature dishes at both The Angel Inn and also The Anchor. Not only that, they also have a small display telling customers about the work we do here at the Trust helping young people both in Suffolk and in Africa and they have collection boxes for diners donations too.
The Angel Inn is a traditional Grade II 16th century Suffolk coaching inn with open fires, original brickwork and oak beams. It is a typical “Old English” country pub offering fantastic food in a stunning setting with six beautifully styled boutique bedrooms, all set in the heart of the pretty village of Stoke by Nayland and just a stone’s throw from the A12 so easily accessible from both Ipswich and Colchester.
The Anchor Inn is a traditional country inn and restaurant nestled in the Stour Valley, in the picturesque village of Nayland, perched on the banks of the River Stour giving diners a watery vista. The Anchor enjoys some stunning views across the river with its weeping willow and humped back bridge and the beautiful countryside that is fondly known as ‘Constable Country’ thanks to the famous works of artist, John Constable.
