It was a happy Christmas for the Lincoln Griffins Under 15s football team, as we sponsored their brand new kit.
We had always wanted to give something back to our community after the amazing support we’ve had from many in it over the years, but wasn’t sure how to go about it.
But when we found out that the Lincoln Griffins Under 15s team was struggling to fund a new away kit, we knew that offering to sponsor it was the answer; Sophie’s best friend and some of the girls she went to school with are part of the team, so it makes sense.
Everyone involved with Lincoln Griffins have been really supportive over the years, so it’s great to be able to give something back.
No matter how they perform this season, they will be doing us all proud just by wearing their kits in Sophie’s favourite colour and emblazoned with the Sophie’s Journey logo.
It should help to raise much-needed awareness of the charity as well as the football club and I’m excited to see just how far and wide Sophie’s Journey travels.
Lincoln Griffins was established in 2000 and is the county’s only all-girls football club.
The Under 15s team trains at Ruston Sports and Social Club in Lincoln on Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm until 8pm.
