VIRTUAL BUCKET COLLECTION
Montrose FC v Greenock Morton FC
Championship Play-Off Semi Final
Montrose Community Trust and Morton in the Community have a fantastic working relationship!
They have grown together, and supported each other through infant years, and difficult times.
Both are award-winning organisations that are committed to putting the power and appeal of football to good use in changing lives and communities.
Both have supported, in recent years, Montrose Football Club and Greenock Morton Football Club, respectively, in being crowned 'Best Professional Club in the Community' by the Scottish FA, and both are long standing members of the European Football for Development Network.
We've been waiting for this tie, for many years, and had it occurred during 'normal times' we would have used the match to further strengthen and showcase our work and partnership, with a range of matchday activities.
Instead, we hope to use this VIRTUAL BUCKET COLLECTION, for both legs of the Championship Play-Off Semi-Final to showcase and raise funds towards our emotive FOOTBALL MEMORIES reminiscence programmes, both in Montrose and Greenock.
This initiative uses images, footage and memorabilia to reignite fond memories of former players, teams and matches, and these sessions are proven to have a significant impact on all participants, but in particular those living with dementia.
We hope that you are able to support our work, and partnership, by 'dropping' a pound or two into our 'virtual bucket' at the match(es).
