At the beginning of 2016, Notts County Football in the Community launched a community partner scheme with local businesses keen to support Notts County community work and work closely with the registered charity.  At NBV we are pleased to announce that we are the latest company to become a partner. By working together, Football in the Community will work with their partners to design creative and innovative solutions and offer a number of opportunities throughout the year, including volunteering, placements, invitations to events as well as one-off opportunities such as the half-time bubble football match, as pictured below. In return, community partners such as NBV have agreed to help support the award-winning work FITC deliver within the local community.

Lewis Quayle - Bubble football

NBV kicked off their community partnership in-style, as Relationship Manager Lewis Quayle (back row, second from right) got to experience football (but not as we know it) on the hallowed Meadow Lane turf. After being placed inside an inflatable bubble (provided by fellow community partner Adrenalin Jungle) Lewis got the opportunity to play with and against a number of other willing volunteers made-up of local FITC partners.

On agreeing the partnership, Neil Kelly Partnerships Executive at FITC said, “We’re delighted to welcome NBV Enterprise Solutions as our 25th local community partner. From the first meeting they were keen to support our community work and we are grateful for their support. Similarly to our varied project work, their business has a number of different services and products. By partnering together we look forward to helping promote each other’s organisations locally and promote their services to both our community partners and Notts County fans. We are in conversation about many different ways we can help each other and we have some very exciting plans in the pipeline which I am sure will benefit both our charity and NBV.”
