We at Fisher are supporitng 3 incredible local community projects. They weill all be present at the game so if you are intrested in finding out more about them, or want to get involved come and say hello:
- LIONS FOOD HUB
Lions Food Hub was set up by the Millwall Lionesses and Millwall Supporters Trust to provide a vital service for people in the area struggling during the pandemic. It continues today to distribute donated food across the local community to families and those who are finding it increasingly difficult to make ends meet in this current economic climate. It’s a vital community lifeline and we at Fisher are happy to contribute in our own small way to it.
We know Fish fans have a generous spirit, every saturday tells us that, we are asking in the run up to Christmas to go that little bit further and bring something down with you this saturday.
Football is about feeding the imagination, Lions Food Hub is about feeding the people! We salute that.
- THE PROPER BLOKES CLUB
another inspirational story from Bermondsey/Rotherhithe. Started by local lad Scott Oughton-Johnson during lockdown it attempts to challenge the ideas around mens mental health by openly talking about it, while socialising together on local walks. From its humble beginnings it has grown into a London-wide phenomenon with 7 separate walking groups across the capital, receiving positive press from the mainstream media.
The premise is simple:
“The main aim is to break the stigma of men’s mental health and start talking openly about it.Exercise has been a proven way to help people with any sort of mental health issues by releasing endorphins that make you feel good about yourself. Walking is free, so makes a great way to start and gets you out in the fresh air”.
If you are interested in getting involved come down to the game this saturday and have a chat with some of the lads involved. It’s what local community is all about.
- TIME & TALENTS
A local community institution that we are proud to be associated with. They have been in the past our shirt sponsors and a logo we wore with pride.
They are lively, busy community organisation based Rotherhithe, Canada Water and Bermondsey with a history stretching back 135 years. Since day one they’ve been supporting local people of all ages, and bringing people together for mutual support, fun and friendship. With a wide range of activities at their centres, along with volunteering and schools’ outreach projects across local neighbourhoods, we work to help everyone feel part of a community.A core part of their work is providing ways for people to connect and share their time and talents, including a wide range of volunteering opportunities, skills-sharing, and opportunities to socialise. They want to connect neighbours close and far, to reduce isolation and build a supportive, resilient community.Why not have a look at what they have on offer? There’s so much to get involved in!
