Rotherham United are proud to be supporting official EFL charity partner Mind by dedicating Saturday's fixture against Coventry City to their work.
A number of activities have been planned by the Rotherham United Community Sports Trust which will take place around the grounds at AESSEAL New York Stadium at the hosting of the Sky Blues and will include the playing out of a suicide awareness video on the club’s big screen and the handing out of informative flyers by members of the Community staff.
In addition to this RUDSA (Rotherham United Disabled Supporters’ Association) will be drawing the winning ticket for a raffle to win a signed shirt at half time, which has taken place to raise funds for the running of the group.
Head of Community Jamie Noble, who has been instrumental in supporting the work done by Mind, was delighted to see the Millers once again working to raise their profile in the local area.
“People can often be suffering mental health issues in silence and we want to remove the stigma surrounding them and reiterate that it is okay to talk,” he told www.themillers.co.uk.
“I think Paul Warne sets a fantastic example in that he manages the first team squad in such an open and honest environment on a day-to-day basis.
“It is great to have someone in charge who recognises the importance of the mental health of his players and staff and I hope we are able to communicate the importance of that message to our supporters in the community.
“Mind are a fantastic charity who have taken their profile to the next level through their partnership with the EFL and I am hopeful that in dedicating Saturday's fixture to their work, we are able to help spread their message to the football world.”
