Gainsborough Trinity Foundation Logo Back

Established in 2016, the Gainsborough Trinity Foundation is a registered charity formed to provide sports training and after-school activities to young people across the local area.

The charity was set up to supplement Gainsborough Trinity Football Club’s aim to better support the local community. In line with West Lindsey Council’s plans to facilitate developments throughout Gainsborough, the charity planned to support the town by purchasing and repurposing the Roses Sports Ground.

The project group were tasked with creating a business plan for this sports ground with suggested events and activities alongside proposed plans for the use and refurbishment of a 5G pitch at the site.

To approach this project, the researched the current strategies utilised by other organisations in the area, as well as those used by similar football foundations. The students conducted in-depth demographic research to better target their recommendations. Their detailed suggestions included a wide range of events, an opening night display with live music, fireworks, and food and drinks stalls alongside year-round charity events and details on how best they could renovate the clubhouse space.

Each student who took part in this project utilized their own skills to research areas that interested them and came together to produce a professional report that the foundation used to influence their development plans for the site going forward.
