Foundation Friends – New programme in partnership with Trent Navigation

Foundation Friends is Notts County Foundation’s latest addition to the circuit of groups and activities. Occurring every Saturday morning from 10AM – 12PM at Portland Centre, it is a multi-sport wellbeing session for people of all abilities. The session is aimed at people wanting to get active and make friends and gives the participants a place to continue their wellbeing journey. The session consists of a variety of sports, including Badminton and Table Tennis. The sessions will also have access to the Portland Centre’s fitness suites, as well as a social aspect where members can have a hot refreshment and conversation with other members. The sessions are run on a pay as you go basis, so there is no sign-up fee or long-standing payment requirement. The weekly price to join is £2.50 for Under 16’s and £4 for adults. Participants will also get a Foundation Friends loyalty card, which after 9 paid sessions, they will get the 10th free! This loyalty card will be able to be used at the sponsor venue Trent Navigation to get a discount on food and drink too! Trent Navigation have partnered with Notts County Foundation on this programme to reflect their updated brand image of being a wholesome, family-friendly organisation with home-cooked food. Participants are encouraged to visit Trent Navigation after their Foundation Friends session!
