At the recent FA Cup Third round tie between Wolves and Manchester United both Wolves and MSA Ltd decided to donate money raised through the Goalden Gate Superdraw to support the ‘Heads Up’ campaign coordinated by the Royal Foundation.
As much as £675 was raised on the day through the Goalden Gate Superdraw which is a fantastic amount of money and will go along way to helping support the education of mental health awareness.
The ‘Heads Up’ campaign was set up by the Royal Foundation with the aim to change the conversation on mental health using football as the catalyst and all donations received will be split between the charity partners, Heads Together, Mind, CALM as well as a grassroots pot that will go towards supporting organisations delivering mental health projects within local communities.
It was apt that Wolves and MSA decided to support this campaign for this match as all FA Cup third-round ties were delayed by one minute to encourage every one taking part and watching to think about their mental health wellbeing. In partnership with Every Mind Matters, the Football Association hoped that this would get everyone to consider how they might support their own mental health as well as that of their friends and families.
