At the start of the year in the middle of a pandemic, LinQsport was involved in the Red January campaign, which empowered thousands of people to get active every day of the month, to kick-start 2021 in a positive way to raise funds for Sport in Mind.
Following our support for this event, we’re delighted to announce in Mental Health Awareness Week, that we’re officially joining forces and partnering with Sport in Mind, to tackle the ongoing challenges within society.
The UK’s Leading Mental Health Sports Charity
Sport in Mind is the UK’s leading mental health sports charity who deliver life changing physical activity projects in association with the NHS, to aid recovery, promote mental health wellbeing, improve physical health, combat social isolation and empower people to move their lives in the right direction. Not just providing sport for those who are already physically active, but being completely inclusive and offering a service for everyone.
It’s this passion which LinQsport are drawn to support, as we know that being active in itself is hugely important to supporting positive mental health and wellbeing, but it also provides the opportunity to create the solid social connections that can help local communities to thrive.
Commenting on the partnership, Sport in Mind CEO, Neil Harris said:
“Sport in Mind is very excited to become the charity partner of LinQsport, being an organisation, whose core values are so closely aligned to that of our own. We look forward to working with LinQsport to help connect people through sport and improve their mental wellbeing.”
LinQsport CEO, Leeroy Pye added:
“With both parties’ objectives and goals aligned, we see this partnership as a natural fit to our vision and values. Moving forward to improve participation and access to sport, supporting individuals to be more active regularly which has proven to provide benefits to both mental and physical wellbeing.
We’re really looking forward to working together with Sport in Mind as we support the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown and connecting people through sport.”
