Iron quartet to take part in Lindsey Lodge's Jog On January event

31 December 2022

Four members of the Scunthorpe United staff will be taking part in Lindsey Lodge Hospice's Jog On January event in 2023.

Interim manager Michael Nelson, Youth Phase Development Coach Andy Butler, Ticket Office Manager / Media Executive James Moody and Partnership Sales Manager Glyn Sparks will all be taking part in the challenge.

In January 2022, then-Club Secretary Adam Grice represented United along with James to complete the month-long virtual fitness challenge to raise much-needed funds for the local charity, with both exceeding 200km over the course of the month, raising a total of £300.

Participants are encouraged to keep moving for 31 days in January however they choose – whether it’s walking, running, dancing or swimming. By completing the challenge and raising £31 for Lindsey Lodge, participants will earn a bespoke Jog on January medal.

The 30-year old charity provides free of charge specialist care for patients with life limiting illnesses from North Lincolnshire, including symptom management, emotional support and end of life care.

On taking part, United interim boss said: "I am really pleased to be supporting a local charity in Lindsey Lodge during January. The local people of Scunthorpe have been kind enough to show their support to me since I came back to the club so it’s really nice to be able to try and give something back to the community."

Speaking about getting involved for a second successive year, James said: "Two becomes four this year for Jog On January at Scunthorpe United. While Adam has left the club, Glyn, Nels and Butts have all agreed to take part this year as we look to raise some much-needed funds for Lindsey Lodge.

"I was once again eager to get involved myself and give back to a local charity that gave palliative care to my grandad back in 2006 and 2007, with them providing excellent care for my nan currently.

"All of my family have supported the charity ever since they provided such tremendous support, and this is just another small way in which I can give back to them and help them raise much-needed funds to allow them to continue delivering the care that they give to hundreds of people every single year."

Glyn added: "I'm really pleased to be supporting Lindsey Lodge. It was Lindsey Lodge that got me into running back in 2007 when I did the Great North Run. It's an amazing local charity that has helped and supported so many people in the area."

While their care is free of charge to patients and their families but not free to provide. As a charity, they rely heavily on the generosity of local people and organisations to raise just over £3.7 million each year to run Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
