The start of June has signalled a restart date for the Sky Bet Championship… and it has also seen plenty of kids return to school.
With the two coinciding, our Fanstore have sent a little ‘welcome back’ gift to a handful of infant and primary schools in our local area, a number of whom work regularly with the club and its Community Trust.
Key workers have been at the forefront, keeping our country functioning during these tricky times. We’ve featured just a small number of Royals-supporting key workers on readingfc.co.uk – healthcare staff, supermarket staff, and those keeping other services available.
Teachers deserve our appreciation all year round (and perhaps many parents' appreciation for teaches has sky-rocketed since homeschooling became a reality) – and now in particular, while they help Berkshire-based youngsters to transition back to the classroom.
Through our Community Trust in particular, the charitable arm of the football club, we have a great relationship with plenty of local schools – where the power of football is harnessed to supplement education. Whether it’s half-term soccer schools, Primary Stars, after-school clubs or matchday experiences, our relationship with schools in the community is vital to what we do.
So we’ve sent this small token of gratitude to those teachers who are back at work, doing their bit for our kids. Thank you to our teachers, and all our key workers!
We would have sent more, but stock of the home shirt is fast running out - and configuring all those letters took our Fanstore Manager an age!
Stock has been flying off the shelves recently - there's at least 50% off all Macron kit and training wear, with further reductions on away kit and some selected items... grab yours at fanstore.readingfc.co.uk before it's gone.
