"Providing the only multi-purpose surface sports facilities in the borough of Gravesham for use by schools and all members of the community, to ensure the continued participation and enjoyment in team sports like hockey and football"
Formed in 1996, GST is a charitable trust that maintains Graveshams only astro-turf pitch at Gravesend Rugby Club. The trust has representatives from Gravesend Grammar School, Gravesend Rugby Club, Gravesend Ladies Hockey Club, Gravesham & Wellcome Hockey Club, Old Gravesendians Rugby Club and Meopham Ladies Hockey Club whose role is to support the management and continued development of the astro facilities for the local community.
The Trust is a registered charity (number: 1053451). We have raised £100,000 out of our target of £250,000 to renew the astro-turf pitch. We are actively seeking additional funding to renew the surface of the astro-turf pitch. So if you can help or you know anyone who has funding we can apply for please contact any member of the Executive Committee or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

GST has been maintaining the current astro-turf for local schools and sports clubs since 1996. The astro-turf now needs replacing. To raise funds, GST has been running events and activities to reach the £250,000 target required. In the last year, we have run quiz nights, a race night, a mixed-hockey tournament, participated in the London Marathon, a half marathon and more.
If you are interested in running an event then please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – all ideas are welcome!
