CHARITY PARTNERS: Official partners guests of honour on Easter Monday

27 March 2016

United welcome Charity Partners to Brunton Park

Carlisle United’s official Charity Partners Carlisle Key, Hospice at Home and CUFC Community Sports Trust are guests of honour for the Bristol Rovers game on Monday as we look to help to raise the profile of some magnificent causes. 

Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland provides high quality care and support for patients who have palliative and end of life care needs, and Carlisle Key helps to alleviate the hardship and distress caused by homelessness, housing, financial and other difficulties and helps young people towards independent living.

Our Community Sports Trust carries out daily work in the community with school projects, Walking Football, Mental and Social Health programmes and regular, popular soccer schools, to name but a few of their activities.

You’ll see a number of bucket collectors around today so please give generously and help these wonderful causes.

Keep an eye out at half time for our fun Charity Partner Mascot race where absolutely anything could happen!

Community Sports Trust manager John Halpin said: “I think this has been a fantastic initiative from the club and it will be good to see all of the charity partners as they get together on Monday. 

“It’s a great way of reaching out and into the community by helping to raise the profile of some excellent causes.”

Julie Blundell, Fundraising and Marketing Manager at Hospice at Home said: “I would like to say a special ‘thank you’ to both the club and to all who voted for us to become a charity partner.

“We have already had a visit from players to our Penrith shop and this partnership has helped us to raise our profile even further through what has been a busy period for all concerned.”

Clare Brockie, Project Manager with Carlisle Key said: “Carlisle Key are absolutely delighted that we are an official Charity Partner of the Season and we feel the partnership will help us to enhance the opportunities and experiences available to the young people we work with.”

Please give generously when you see the bucket collectors.
