Charity Support

Our Local Charity

Emirates Spinnaker Tower supports Pompey in the Community, an independent charitable trust affiliated to Portsmouth Football Club.

About Pompey in the Community

Pompey in the Community harnesses the motivational power of Portsmouth Football Club to promote education, healthy living, sporting participation and achievement amongst participants of all ages. Last season, across Portsmouth and the surrounding area, more than 36,000 people directly benefitted from their programmes. As a charity, it is vital that we build awareness of our programmes on offer within the local community, which in turn will enable the charity to gain more support and ultimately increase participation as well as the opportunities that are available to so many people across our region.

In 2017 the charity was rewarded for its notable work as it was named the official Community Club of the Year by the English Football Leagu

Our National Charity

Emirates Spinnaker Tower, as part of Continuum Attractions, is proud to support Make a Wish as its national charity.

About Make a Wish

The charity Make a Wish exists for one reason – to grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. Whether it’s starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a life-changing bedroom makeover; the wishes are varied, personal and, most importantly, magical. 11,000 magical wishes have been granted since 1986.

 

Make a Wish go above and beyond to grant very special wishes to very special children; their dreams made a reality at a time when they need it most. Because a child’s life shouldn’t be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy and hope.
