Throughout the 2019-20 season, the U14 Green football team at Huntingdon Rowdies, in a first for the club,
will be proudly displaying the logo of local young people’s charity Centre 33 on their chests.
Thanks to a charitable donation the team were able to support a local young people’s charity instead of having sponsored kit.
“We are really excited to be working together to promote Centre 33 and our services, as well as share information with the players and their families to make sure the young people can look after their mental health and wellbeing. This presents a unique opportunity for Centre 33 and something that, to our knowledge, is new to the charity. Given the age range of the young people we support in Huntingdon and those that play for Huntingdon Rowdies it feels like a natural synergy.” Gavin Chappell Bates – Fundraising Manager
Team Manager Alan Woodward said:
“It was great to welcome Centre 33 to see the team play and speak to our players. The club has never done anything like this before so it is great for us to raise awareness about some of these issues and support a local charity. Beyond the football, we have a responsibility for the wellbeing of our players and we think this partnership will be able to help us all in signposting them to local services.”
