Long-term supporters of Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT), ITRM, have renewed their Principal Partner title for the ninth year running.

ITRM will also be the title sponsor for the CACT Awards at the prestigious House of Lords on 6 October. Hosted by Lord Michael Grade of Yarmouth CBE, the event will celebrate CACT’s achievements over the last two years, including participants, partners and staff members who have gone above and beyond within the community. 

As CACT’s Principal Partner for nine successive years, the award-winning managed service provider based in Sidcup are front of shirt sponsor for all of CACT’s affiliated teams, including LGBTQ+ friendly team CACT Invicta, Down’s syndrome programme the Charlton Upbeats and pan-disability outfit Ability Counts FC.  

ITRM have supported CACT’s work in the community in a wide range of ways. In April, ITRM staff members played a key role in the record-breaking Upbeats Walk, which saw CACT raise over £36,000 for the Upbeats. As in past years, some staff members volunteered their time to help with registrations whilst others took on the 9-mile walk themselves and fundraised for CACT. 

ITRM’s Managing Director, Dave White, himself volunteered on the Holiday Activities & Food programme that CACT delivers on behalf of local authorities. The programme supplies nutritious meals to young people who are eligible for free school meals. He also provided IT infrastructure and his time volunteering to support the Greenwich Community Hub following the first Covid-19 outbreak in 2020. 

Jason Morgan MBE, CACT’s Chief Executive said:  

“I’m delighted that ITRM are not only renewing their partnership with us as Principal Partner, but also going to be the title sponsor of this year’s CACT Awards. Staff and trustees are extremely grateful to Dave White and ITRM for their support of CACT’s work in the community for many years.  

“It’s exciting to be working together around the CACT Awards, which will be a great celebration of recent achievements as well as how key support from ITRM has helped make all these possible”. 

Dave White, ITRM’s Managing Director, said: 

"We are delighted to continue our partnership with CACT as the Principal Partner for the ninth consecutive year. We are also pleased to sponsor the upcoming CACT Awards.

“As CACT's Principal Partner, our vision and values have become synonymous with theirs, and it gives us great pleasure to honour those who dedicate themselves to improving our community. 

“At ITRM, we believe in living our values every day. To us, corporate social responsibility is more than just a policy and a tick box exercise. It's at the heart of who we are and what we do. 

“CACT provides people from all walks of life with progressive life experiences that dramatically and positively impact their futures. In their 30th year, they continue to set the example for everybody else to follow, which is a testament to their extraordinary, committed people and dedicated leader Jason Morgan. CACT's goals are exceptional, and our staff regularly stand with them to support the local community and their incredible work.  

“So, in our heads and hearts, there was no question of not continuing the partnership and sponsoring the CACT Awards, as in our own tiny way, we wanted to help contribute and do good for our local community, which we're privileged to be a part of."
