Notts County announces Rainbows as charity partner

Rainbows has scored an official charity partnership with Notts County FC.

The National League club has teamed up with our charity for the 2022/23 football season carrying out a range of activities to help raise funds and awareness of our hospice and our work.

Over the course of the season, our logo will feature on the sleeve of their new home shirts and supporters will be invited to participate in fundraising activities at Meadow Lane on matchdays. There will also be a dedicated awareness match for our charity, with the club’s pre-match press conference being held at our hospice.

Players will visit our hospice to meet children, young people and to learn more about our work. The children and young people will also have the chance to tour around Meadow Lane and watch matches.

Head of Commercial at Notts County Jordan Worthington said: “We’re always delighted to work closely with charities who have a huge impact in the local area and Rainbows certainly fits that criteria.

“As the only charity of its kind in the East Midlands, Rainbows play a crucial role in supporting children and their families who are going through so much. We’re looking forward to amplifying the tremendous work they do and we encourage our fans to generously support our joint fundraising efforts.”

Jane Burns, Director of Supporter Relations at Rainbows, added: “We are all delighted to be working with everyone at the club this season for what promises to be a winning partnership. Our charity gets very little funding from the government, so support from clubs such as Notts County, and all of its amazing fans, really does make such a difference in helping to brighten short lives in Nottinghamshire and across the East Midlands. We look forward to a promising year ahead, both on and off the pitch.”
