Lincoln City Imps in the Community has rebranded as Lincoln City Foundation from Thursday 1st November, 2018.
The Foundation’s new identity reflects the ambition and desire to continue to develop community aspirations, programmes and to build a strong partnership as part of Lincoln City Football Club.
The vision ‘Inspiring Lives In Our Communities’ sets out Lincoln City Foundation’s core values and aims, to provide opportunities that inspire individuals to improve their physical, social or well-being through active participation. The registered charity carries out work with the community; engaging with people of all abilities, offering them opportunities and routes through our four key themes; Sport, Education, Health and Inclusion.
Following the success of Lincoln City, the Foundation aims to reach out to new individuals to help them to realise their potential. By aligning with the Lincoln City brand, we will be able to use the power of the clubs success on and off the pitch to reach more individuals within the community that may not be aware of the work Lincoln City Foundation carries out.
Paul Hamnett, Head of the Foundation, said: “Becoming Lincoln City Foundation is the next part to our history and has aligned the charity with the changes that have happened at Lincoln City Football Club over the past 15 months. The decision to change the name was easy and has been supported by all involved and some of our external partners.
We chose Foundation as the breadth of work delivered is significantly wider than just Sport & Education and with plans to grow work within the four themes we deliver; Sport, Education, Health and Inclusion, we hope that this clearer identity will contribute to more success and greater understanding.
We are looking forward to delivering more work to more people to inspire them to be active and make a small difference in people’s lives.”
Liam Scully, Lincoln City Football Club Chief Executive Officer, "The change of name to Lincoln City Foundation is the platform for a much wider collaboration which will both enable and ensure we add value to our community beyond the 90 minutes of football.
In combining the skills, talents and dedication of the Foundation team members, with the reach and profile of the Football Club, we have an exciting and dynamic partnership that will serve our community now and long into the future.
Simon Walters, Chair of Trustees, added: “The change of name to Lincoln City Foundation is an important step in the ongoing development of our charity. The recent launch of our four year growth strategy sees us branch out into an ever more diverse range of services to local communities across the city and wider. The Foundation is developing even closer links with the football club itself creating a powerful brand recognised for excellence not just on the pitch but in the communities the Foundation serves.”
