We have been running this survey since February and we are pleased to inform you that over 60 of you have taken part, which is great, but we need more of you to take part so that we can get a more accurate picture of the views of you, the membership.


It includes questions on Membership & Benefits, how you pay for your Season Ticket, the ways in which we communicate with you, what you would like to see us do and campaign on and what you can offer us. We will collate all responses and come back to you with what we find.


Your views are important to us and can help shape the future of the Trust.


With many of you staying at home, you may have more time to fill in the survey. Start by clicking here!

Bantams Supporters Trust are getting behind the Foodbanks in Bradford to help feed hungry families. We are aiming to raise £5,000 to feed thousands of families in Bradford who have no where else to turn to put a meal on the table for their families.


29% of children in Bradford live below the poverty line.


105 emergency 3 day parcels were given to families in one day (Friday 27th March) during the coronavirus. This will feed 220 people, provide 1980 meals and was worth £4000!


£15 is the cost of donating a 3 day food parcel for a single person.


Can you give £1 or more? Your donation will support Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank and Bradford Central Foodbank.


If you want to make a financial donation please do this by going the link here.

Bradford City are backing 'Boot The Virus' campaign charity helping to raise vital funds for the NHS.

From May 1, Boot The Virus will auction footballers' matchday boots on their website - with 100 per-cent of the proceeds going to the NHS.


So far, Bantams Richard O'Donnell and Shay McCartan are involved, having each donated a pair of their boots. To find out more click here.

Wigan Athletic Community Trust, whether it’s delivering PPE to 13 care homes, over 150 food packages to vulnerable people or making food drops to distribution centres, have become a key part of the Community’s response to COVID-19.


However, Ian Gaskell, who has been coordinating Latic’s COVID 19 response, is keen to stress that the Community Trust’s work is part of a much wider team effort.


Gaskell says: “There are a lot of local organisations involved in the effort. What we decided when the enormity of the situation became clear is that we need to use our resources in the best way possible and that obviously means being part of a combined effort.”


The Community Trust works with a wide variety of partners on a weekly basis... Find out more here.

Dear Members,


It has been at least 3 weeks since the 'lock-down' to ensure that the spread of the Corona Virus/Covid 19 is limited and about 4 weeks since the postponement of the football season as a result of the seriousness of the epidemic. It is now widely understand that the postponement is indefinite, so, we are all missing our football for sure.


As well as keeping you up to date with football information, we hope to provide you with ideas and links that will help in some small way to see you and your families through this difficult situation. We all make up a rich and diverse community from all economic and cultural backgrounds, but this virus knows no barriers so we can all be affected by it.


We know that there are all sorts of pressures on us, not least, job insecurities, yet at the same time there is a huge collective spirit of supporting one and other, and it is this message that this is all about. We have put together a selection of news items re-enforcing a positive community spirit with some links that you might forward or use.


If there are some community activities in your area that you know about and / or that you are involved in, please let us know about them in the usual way, here, and we can share and promote them on social media.


Take care everyone and stay safe.


From all of us on the Bantams Supporters Trust Board
