Swans donate over £3,000 for Mind
Swansea City is pleased to announce that together with the Jack Army the club has been able to donate £3,102 to the mental health charity Mind, the EFL’s official charity partner last season.
The Swans got fully behind the cause by helping to raise awareness and funds for the charity.
As a result, the club donated £1 to Mind for every jersey that was purchased with shirt-printing during the campaign. Fans were also able to donate an additional £1 when they added shirt printing to their order and checkout online.
A spokesperson for Mind said: “On behalf of Mind I would like to thank Swansea City and its supporters for your kind and generous donation. We are incredibly grateful for your support.’’
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. That could mean hundreds of footballers and thousands of football fans.
Half of men admit they feel uncomfortable talking about emotions compared with two in five women. But opening up about feelings and problems, including mental health problems, is one of the best ways of dealing with them.
The Mind logo was featured on the players' names on all EFL shirts last season.
