Melbourn Football Club raise £4500

Last season, Melbourn FC challenged themselves to run or walk a combined 6,000km – the distance between their home ground to the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul and back – to raise money for us. Now, the club have chosen to continue raising awareness of mental health and supporting us for the 2021/22 season.

Now, the club have chosen to continue raising awareness of mental health and supporting us for the 2021/22 season.

Melbourn FC will be donating 25% of their fundraising total for the season to us after we were chosen by the ‘Player’s Player of the Year’ as the cause they wanted to support. Thanks to their fundraising so far, Melbourn FC have already raised nearly £4,500 for us.

Simon Gascoyne, Secretary of the club said “For the last two seasons Melbourn Football Club has supported us. Chosen by the Players’ Player of the Year as a local mental health charity and a great chance to help support people experiencing mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.”

Mick Walker, Chairman added “We are pleased to announce that following the success of our fundraising efforts for CPSL Mind over the past two years, the club will continue our support for this very worthy cause for another season. 25% of all profit the club makes through club fundraisers will be donated to at the end of the current season. We hope to raise as much as possible for our club and to help CPSL Mind in their aim to help those who need help with their mental health.”

Catherine Keating, our Community Fundraiser said, “We are so thankful to Melbourn FC for raising awareness of our services, raising money and getting active. It has been a tough year for people who have been isolated from others and team sports when allowed, have hugely helped people’s wellbeing. Getting out on the pitch also ties in with one of the 5 ways to wellbeing to “BE ACTIVE”. We are looking forward to hearing about Melbourn FC’s events.”

The next event is ‘A Day at the Races in Newmarket’ with proceeds going to us. As we recover from several lockdowns and the Covid-19 pandemic, people are still struggling with their mental wellbeing in many different ways. We are here to help people overcome a wide range of difficulties.
