St Barnabas Hospice are delighted to have been announced as Charity Partner of Lincoln City Football Club
Following a lengthy voting process, St Barnabas Hospice have come out on top as one of two Charity Partners of Lincoln City Football Club for 2018.
The vote has been extremely close, with over 12,000 people taking part, and the two winning charities had over 50% of the vote between them. This outcome means that St Barnabas will now be working closely with the football club, alongside other local charity, Lincs2Nepal.
Lincoln City Football Club said:
“Club Charity Partners are given priority for fundraising support and profile awareness. Throughout the season, the Club is committed towards helping these charities at management level in order to assist with fundraising activities, all designated to raise the profile of the charity.
“The official Charity Partners will be given the utmost priority for the Club’s help in fundraising activities, including match day bucket collections.”
The voting process for this elusive charity partnership began with fans nominating local charities by email. The top eight nominated charities were then put to a public vote (online, postal and by email). Of these eight, the top two charities won.
Caroline Swindin, Corporate Fundraiser for St Barnabas, said:
“I am completely overwhelmed that we have managed to secure such a wonderful charity partnership with Lincoln City Football Club. This partnership means so much to us in terms of helping to raise our profile in the local community. It will allow us to support more people across Lincolnshire living with a life-limiting or terminal illness and their families and carers.
“From the bottom of my heart, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for us during this process. The support we have received from individuals and local businesses has been outstanding.”
