Each season the club selects a local charity as its charity partner, and partnered with The Ducklings Trust during the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, which were both curtailed by the

Covid-19 pandemic.

Andy Martin, chairman of 21st Century Ducks, the Aylesbury United Supporters’ Trust, and a club director, said: “We’re delighted to finally be able to present the charity with the money

donated by our supporters, and hope it contributes to their goal of raising enough for a state of the art birthing pool facility.”

The bulk of the money was raised by supporters through a sponsored walk in October 2020 from the club’s former home in Aylesbury, Buckingham Road, to The Meadow in Chesham,

where the first team currently plays.
