Links Park Community Trust was established in 2011 with one very simple goal; to utilise the power and widespread appeal of sport to inspire change.
Using the facilities provided by Links Park Stadium in Montrose, and alternative venues throughout Angus and the Mearns, LPCT are developing and delivering an extensive range of innovative sporting, healthy and educational programmes, each of which are designed to meet identified local need.

European Football for Development Network
Links Park Community Trust and Montrose Football Club are presenting at the European Football for Development Network conference in Wolfsburg today!
The EFDN is a collaboration of 'community-focussed' football clubs from across Europe who discuss and plan ways in which the power of football can be used to address the needs of the communities in which they are based. Only four clubs from any European country can join, to ensure that there is a strong representation from all areas, so we are delighted that we will be able to contribute to the work of the EFDN, alongside some elusive partners such as AEK Athens, Manchester United and PSV amongst others. It is hoped that our membership of such a prestigious organisation will benefit and enhance the work we do within sport, education and health locally!
Scottish Football Association Visit
Scottish FA Chief Executive Stewart Regan held his East Region Staff Forum at Links Park Stadium last week. We were asked to showcase some of our programmes as part of the event whereby we showcased our Numeracy Trail, our Literacy Trail and our Walking Football programmes. Project Manager Peter Davidson was then asked to present on the work of Links Park Community Trust, and we believe that delegates were suitably impressed by the extensive range of programmes we have on offer within each of three strands, being sport, education and health.

Walk for LPCT!
A four-strong team from Links Park Community Trust have signed up to undertake all 6 (26-mile) Kiltwalks this year in an attempt to raise funds towards the work of the charity.
With a combined total of £2,000 to raise, Team LPCT are not only actively seeking sponsorship for their efforts, but are also inviting anyone who may be able and willing to participate in one or a number of walks to join them in the challenge.
For anyone able and willing to contribute towards our fundraising efforts, please kindly donate via this link!
For more information and for participation details, please visit our Facebook page.
Our 'Still Game: Walking Football' project aims to attract those older adults (50+), and in particular men, who retain an affection for the game but do not feel physically able to participate due to the demands of the sport. 'Walking Football' looks and feels like the traditional game, but there is one condition applied to the rules...you cannot run! For more information and to register click here.
