Gloucester Rugby to dedicate Sale Sharks fixture to Mental Health Awareness

Gloucester Rugby to dedicate Sale Sharks fixture to Mental Health Awareness
Following the desperately sad events of the weekend, Gloucester Rugby’s match against Sale Sharks will be dedicated to shine a light on Mental Health, to raise awareness and promote kindness through the #BeKind campaign.

The Gloucester Rugby Foundation has teamed up with the Samaritans to raise awareness of Mental Health and bring in-stadium support to Kingsholm and fans.

Our aim is to not only highlight mental health issues, but also to fill Kingsholm Stadium and raise as much money as possible for the Gloucester & District Samaritans. Therefore £5 from every ticket purchase will be donated to the charity.

Lance Bradley, Gloucester Rugby’s CEO, said:

“We wanted to find a way of turning something so awful into something positive. Our idea is to make it easy for fans to show their support for Danny [Cipriani] at this incredibly difficult time for him, as well as highlighting mental health issues and raising money for the Gloucester & District Samaritans. If you choose just one rugby match to come to, even if you’ve never been before, it would be great if you’d make it this one.”

Tickets to the Sale Sharks match on Friday 28 February (kick off 19.45) can be purchased via the ticketing website using the promo code BEKIND for the following prices:

Adult & Concessions (65+, and Forces)

Seated - £35 (including £5 donation)

Standing - £25 (including £5 donation)

18-25

Anywhere in the stadium - £20 (including £5 donation)

We will have representatives from the Gloucester & District Samaritans in the Fan Zone for supporters to find out about the great work they do and also get advice if needed.

If you can’t make it to the match, or if you would like to donate more than £5, you can do so here.

Thank you for your support.
