The Jimmy Hill Legacy Fund is a fundraising initiative in order to provide opportunities to improve the quality of life for those who need it most, in memory of the late Jimmy Hill OBE.
Jimmy Hill played a huge role during his time with Coventry City, a period which saw him take the positions of Manager, Managing Director and Chairman of the club driving the ‘Sky Blue Revolution’ in the 1960s and 1970s.
Jimmy Hill’s success had a huge impact on the city of Coventry and the Legacy Fund will provide a fitting tribute in his memory, supporting a number of causes that were close to his heart.
The Legacy Fund aims to:
- To provide activities for children and adults with disabilities (through activities run by SBitC)
- To provide opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people in Coventry and Warwickshire (delivered by SBitC)
- Support and increase the activities on match days in the Sky Blues Family Zone (run by volunteers)
- To provide small grant awards to local voluntary and community organisations
