The Lincolnshire Bombers American Football Club are pleased to announce the adoption of Help for Heroes as the club’s charity for the 2019 season.
The American Football club, based in Lincoln, took the decision at a recent management meeting to extend the club’s social responsibility by connecting with a charitable cause that meant something to the players and coaching staff from the team. A poll was put to the players and staff, which resulted in the Help for Heroes charity securing the most votes and therefore backing from the whole club to proudly support this worthwhile charity in and around Lincolnshire.
With this now confirmed, the Lincolnshire Bombers will begin raising funds for Help for Heroes and welcome any local individuals or businesses who wish to support charitable donations for the injured servicemen and women Help for Heroes support.
The club have already planned to run a ‘point-for-point’ campaign where local businesses can commit to sponsoring a set amount for each point the Lincolnshire Bombers score in the 2019 season, while collection buckets will also be available at the club’s home games. Maurice Maynard, club secretary, said: “This is the first time that the Club have adopted a charity and builds on our already established work in Primary Schools to benefit the local and wider community.’’
