G&L and Origin Global contribute to our CALM initiative
Posted on 11th July 2023
Maidenhead United FC is delighted to continue working with G&L Scientific in addition to partnering with Origin Global for 2023/24.
Peter Griffin, Chairman at G&L Scientfic and of Maidenhead United, said:
I think this is a fantastic opportunity for us and also the charity, CALM.
The idea first come about from looking at a different way of doing our front of shirt sponsorship and we felt like this was a really good community and commercial opportunity for local businesses to support a worthy cause and the football club as well."
Neil Ginger, CEO at Origin Global, expressed:
"It’s an honour to be able to support our local community and in particular, Maidenhead United, whose front-of-shirt sponsor, CALM, has such an important role in supporting those that need them most.
Origin is looking forward to being part of the journey with Maidenhead FC and is excited to see the Maidenhead United and CALM partnership flourish."
Sian Lancaster, Commercial Partnership Manager at Maidenhead United, spoke on the second day of our CALM partner announcements:
"Today we would like to acknowledge and thank two more of our CALM Partners, one being a long-term partner and one a brand new partner.
G&L Healthcare Advisors have supported the club and been front of shirt for many years, with the Chairman, Peter Griffin starting off his involvement with Maidenhead United as a pitch side sponsor! G&L’s shared passion continues as they support our CALM initiative (Campaign Against Living Miserably).
We are delighted to welcome Origin Global as a new partner to Maidenhead United and who share the same values in enabling us to support those that need it the most.
We are excited about the forthcoming months ahead as we work together with both G&L Healthcare Advisors and Origin Global along with the other nine CALM partners to create awareness of the charity CALM within the local community in running ongoing campaigns and activities to support the prevention of suicide, particularly amongst men within our community. These activities along with our other community initiatives will ensure we continue to make a positive difference to all members of our community ensuring they feel connected to one another. No one should feel alone and we are thankful to both G&L Healthcare Advisors and Origin Global sharing the same values as us."
