Imps and LNER Show Support for CALM11/09/20
On the 10th October Lincoln City FC played Bristol Rovers at the LNER Stadium which coincided with World Mental Health Day. Our charity partner CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) were gifted the match sponsor spot.
The past six months have been a tricky time for everyone, CALM, LNER and The Imps want to remind us all to check in on our mates and see how they are feeling.
Lincoln City FC ran a 50/50 raffle draw, to mark Mental Health Awareness Day, half of the proceeds raised from the draw were donated to CALM.
Commenting on the partnership Ben Hawley, Marketing and Communications Director at the Campaign Against Living Miserably said,
“LNER have been staunch supporters of our life-saving work over the years, and we remain extremely grateful for their continued support. In these uncertain times people are needing CALM and our helpline services more than ever. We’re delighted that we can come together with LNER and The Imps to raise awareness around mental health and suicide through the 50/50 raffle and match sponsorship.”
“With football up and down the country returning from lockdown, it's more important than ever that we continue to stick together and be there for our mates on and off the pitch, whatever they are going through."
CALM now feature on the back of the 20/21 third shirt. Back in September we announced that we would be gifting the space to CALM to help raise awareness of the great work they do.
