Join us as we make space for Samaritans
To drive awareness of mental wellbeing, we are bringing our fantastic partners together in an exciting way. We’re making space for Samaritans on the Rhinos’ shirts by swapping our logo for theirs for one very special match.
Marching on together
Our partnership with Leeds Rhinos is the longest in Super League history, and we’re proud to have been their main club sponsor since 2007. During that time we’ve been involved in a lot of work to support our local community, including the creation of our Blue & Amber Savings account. Each year, we make a donation equal to 1% of the total balances in these accounts to the brilliant Leeds Rhinos Youth Development Programme, allowing it to continue developing young talent and producing future stars.
Every six seconds, someone contacts Samaritans. They are there, around the clock, 365 days a year for those who need them, and in 2018 the charity responded to more than 5.7 million calls for help.
Leeds Building Society want to support the people who give their all to people in need, and help them provide even more care for those who are struggling to cope. So, we’re aiming to raise £250,000 for Samaritans by March 2020. We’re not stopping there though – we’re now gifting them the centre spot on the Rhinos’ shirts for one night only to raise awareness of the vital service they provide.
On 15th of August at Emerald Headingley Stadium, you’ll be able see the Samaritans logo being displayed front and centre during this special game. You don’t want to miss out on this one, as it’s not every day we get to celebrate such an amazing charity!
This will be no ordinary match, but don’t worry about having to pay an extraordinary price. Despite the added extras of Samaritans pop-up stalls, informational videos and being able to see the new shirt design in all its glory, the ticket price is the same as a usual match. Additionally, to support this initiative, Leeds Rhinos will be making a donation from the sale of every ticket purchased using the promo code SAMARITANS. This promo code is valid for tickets in all areas of the stadium. The code can be used online, over the phone (0371 423 1315) and in person at the Ticket Office. The deadline to use the code is 3 hours before kick-off.
