The vote was extremely close, with the club receiving thousands of votes from supporters who voted online on the LCFC website between the 18th of December and the 3rd of January. The supporters’ decision means that St Barnabas will now be working closely with the football club, alongside other charity partners Marie Curie Lincolnshire, Lincoln City Foundation and Samaritans.
Liam Scully, CEO of Lincoln City FC, said: “At the heart of compassion, St Barnabas Hospice embodies the unwavering commitment to provide solace and support to those navigating life's most challenging moments.
“We stand proud in our partnership with St Barnabas, applauding the profound impact of their compassionate care in our local community, and we look forward to promoting their good work across the year.”
Lincoln City FC charity partners are allocated main priority for fundraising support and profile awareness supported by the club throughout the year in the hope of raising more important funds for their causes.
During the season, staff at the club are committed to helping these charities with fundraising activities, all designed to raise the profile of the charity.
Collaborative fundraising activities between LCFC and St Barnabas can vary throughout the year, including priority to carry out matchday bucket collections and benefitting from player appearances.
