Charity Partnership with DCFC
Derby County FC
If we go back a few months, we were delighted to announce that me&dee had been chosen as one of Derby County’s charity partners for the 2019/20 season, amazing news!
But then along came Covid-19 and stopped everything in its track with football closing its gates and only opening up in July to finish the season behind closed doors!
As you can imagine this has had a huge knock on effect for DCFC and the three local charities, with only one bucket collection taking place the amount that Derby County raised was hit hard.
Amazingly at the end of the season me&dee received the news that Derby County had still managed to raise a total of nearly £9,000 which was split three ways, me&dee received £2,962.41 which is a fantastic achievement under such difficult circumstances.
Maria, the founder/CEO of me&dee said; “To raise so much under these circumstances is truly amazing and with all of our events being cancelled is most welcome”. “The partnership means a great deal to me&dee and we can’t thank Derby County enough for the support we have received, they have certainly made some memories for our poorly families”.
The charity look forward to continuing the partnership for the 2020/21 season, here’s hoping that things return to normal soon.
