Earlier today it was announced that Burnley will wear special shirts featuring the Alzheimer’s Society logo on their 2021-22 Umbro home shirts when they face Rochdale in the Carabao Cup fixture, tomorrow on World Alzheimer’s Day.
The 2021-22 Burnley shirt sponsors, Spreadex have donated their space on the front of the clarets shirts to the Alzheimer’s Society charity to help raise awareness.
Burnley FC’s Head of Commercial Partnerships, Ella Cummins, said: “We’re delighted that we are able to highlight such a valuable cause through the front of shirt and would like to thank Spreadex for making this possible.
“For many of us, this is a cause close to our hearts, and as a club we are looking forward to working closely with Alzheimer’s Society over the coming year on some great initiatives.
“We will also be creating a raffle for the match-worn shirts and warmup t-shirts following the game with all money raised from the £5 raffle ticket going to support Alzheimer’s Society.
“We’re hopeful that through the third kit sales and the raffle, we will be able to raise a significant sum for the charity, supporting the invaluable work they do for those living with dementia.”
