LUCTONIANS SPORTS CLUB CHARITY GROUP
Raising Funds For Good Causes

The aim of the Charity Group is to select the charities that Luctonians will support each year and to organise fund raising events.

Our chosen charities for the 2022/23 season are

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is responsible for funding and operating three air ambulance helicopters and two critical care cars serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, the West Midlands and Worcestershire. This constitutes the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK. The charity also provides secondary cover to surrounding areas, such as Warwickshire and Mid Wales.

Not many people know that Luctonians Sports Club is, in part, a Registered Charity. This supports the Club in its provision of community engagement, both sporting and social.

Our chosen charities for this season’s ‘Lucs in Purple’ Charity Matchday on 24th September are

Little Princess Trust provide real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other conditions. They are driven by a desire to improve the lives of children and young people with cancer and to make their service available to all children and young people who need it. They use their ever-growing knowledge and experience to provide the best service possible and fund the worthiest research. Click on the logo above to learn more.
