The Northampton Town FC Community Trust are delighted to confirm that they will be supported by an international logistics company as their main sponsor for the next two seasons.

The James and James story began back in 2010, when two Cambridge grads were struggling to sell honey online. After working with multiple fulfilment companies, James Hyde and James Strachan began to get fed up with outdated systems, inefficient operations, and unhappy customers. So, instead of moving to the next fulfilment partner, they founded their own. James and James Fulfilment was born.

Fast-forward to 2023, and James and James Fulfilment has grown bigger than they could have imagined. A growing team of over 250 fabulous employees, an international network of fulfilment centres, hundreds of happy clients, and an array of inspiring partners that help both them and their clients continue to scale up.

The partnership officially began in April 2023. James and James had previously supported the Community Trust in sponsoring the Claret Mountaineers to climb Scafell Pike helping to fund various disability, health & wellbeing, and women & girls projects. Staff from the Northampton site also ran with Damon Fox during his ‘Covering the Distance Running Challenge’ to support children in poverty across Northamptonshire.

As a charity the Northampton Town FC Community Trust aim to create a healthy, happy, and more connected Northamptonshire using the power of sport and brand of Northampton Town FC. Supporting the local community is in our DNA, to further the impact being made, encouraging participation in sport, providing educational opportunities, improving health and wellbeing and promoting inclusivity, equality and diversity. Since the charity’s inception, it has invested over £2 million into the local community and supports over 1000 people every single week.

The sponsorship from James and James Fulfilment will allow the Northampton Town FC Community Trust to continue to deliver over 40 projects across Northamptonshire which improve health and wellbeing, create stronger, safer, connected communities & enhance life chances.

Emma Dempsey, CEO at James and James Fulfilment said: “James and James are delighted to be supporting Northampton Town Community Trust in the outstanding work they do.  We look forward to working together on initiatives which benefit the people of Northampton and the surrounding area. James and James aspire to be the best employer in Northampton and we look forward to working within the local community alongside NTRC Community Trust”.

Damon Fox, Business Development Manager at the Northampton Town FC Community Trust said: ‘’We are so thrilled to receive the support from James and James Fulfilment. From the moment I met Emma it was clear she had a passion for supporting the local community, particularly those in vulnerable situations & has acted quickly to offer her and the teams support across so many of our projects already. We are very excited to see where the partnership takes us over the next two years.’’
