Cheltenham Town Football Club (CTFC) has signed up to the Crimestoppers’ Ambassadors scheme - designed to increase awareness of our charity and our work within the community.

The scheme aims to raise awareness of our anonymous service via organisations and companies through staff and volunteers who are in day-to-day contact with victims, possible perpetrators, vulnerable individuals or those who may simply have information about crime.

We encourage people to speak up about crime 100% anonymously using our non-traceable online reporting form or via our professionally staffed UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111.

Gary Johnson, Cheltenham Town Manager, said: “CTFC is delighted to become a Crimestoppers’ Ambassador, helping to raise awareness of the charity’s invaluable anonymous crime reporting service. We all want to live and work in safe environments and Crimestoppers charity empowers people to speak up about crime when they may have nowhere else to turn.

“We would like to encourage our fans and those who attend games to remember they have the ability to give information relating to criminal activities, without revealing their identity. We look forward to working in partnership with the Gloucestershire volunteers in the future and supporting the charity’s activities and campaigns.”

Emily van der Lely, Regional Manager for Crimestoppers, said: “We know that some residents who hold the key to what is happening, yet they are too scared or worried to take action and talk directly to the police. Crimestoppers gives them the chance to report information completely anonymously, without fear of being identified in any way.”

Crimestoppers is not an emergency service and in the event of an emergency, you should always ring 999.
