As part of the EFL’s charity partnership with Mind over the past two seasons, the EFL has worked with the mental health charity to launch a campaign to mark World Mental Health Day, which takes place on 10th October each year, with this year focusing on the ‘Do one thing’ campaign.
As the partnership continues into its third season, the EFL, Bolton Wanderers Community Trust and Bolton Wanderers Football Club continue to highlight the partnership and raise awareness of the importance of mental health.
The ‘Do one thing’ campaign may involve reaching out to a friend, taking part in physical exercise, meditating or listening to music in order to look after your own mental health and that of others.
Head Coach Ian Evatt took part in this campaign when he visited longstanding season ticket holders and supporters Anne and Marie in a garden gate visit. The sisters have held season tickets with the Wanderers for over 50 years and were surprised with the special visit of the Head Coach. Alongside a talk all things football and Bolton Wanderers, both were given an activity pack containing puzzles, sudoku and word searches. They also both received a signed copy of the Newport County programme.
