Tockwith Festivals has always been about community and supporting our local groups. Our home for several years was the sports field and we are proud to support this fantastic space through the Tockwith Sportfield Trust.
The Trust manages the grounds and clubhouse on behalf of Tockwith & Wilstrop Parish Council and is a charity, registered with the Charity Commission, no. 505845. Tockwith Festivals have awarded grants over the years since our conception of approximately £6000 to the Trust, to assist with their fundraising activities. The Trust through its own fundraising is able to maintain the grounds & clubhouse and provide this valuable space for the various groups which use this facility. Fundraising efforts have allowed access ramps and a refurbishment to the clubhouse as well as allowing improvements to ensure the grounds & pitches are the envy of other villages. Tockwith Festivals contribution is a small proportion of what is required to operate this tremendous community asset.
This award to the Sportsfield Trust means that the festival charity reaches approximately 200 young people each week plus the parents, guardians and carers. In addition to this, the coaching staff, who all have taken FA coaching qualifications, ensure training and matches go ahead utilising the immaculate pitches. As well as our younger teams there are two senior teams playing in York leagues which involves around 40 people a week, not including the supporters. Football isn’t the only activity, there are bowls & tennis clubs which provide valuable activities for the community. The clubhouse is available to other groups as well as providing valuable facilities to the clubs and groups based at the sports field.
