Tooting and Mitcham United FC are pleased to announce their partnership with St Georges Hospital Charity.

St Georges Hospital has a close relationship with the club, playing a part in the lives of many of its players and fans.

Over the past year, the club has supported St Georges in many ways including:

- The club's 3G pitches are regularly used by teams from St George’s medical school and the mental health department for matches.

- The club has supported the Charity in raising funds at a comedy night fundraiser back in September 2019.

- Club supporters Ciaran Kelly and Emmeline Pinion purchased a ‘Friend of TMUFC’ package to support the club. As part of this package, St George’s Hospital Charity received advertising via the club website, social media posts, a pitch-side banner, and a profile in the programme.

The club then decided to strengthen the relationship further by featuring the St George’s Hospital Charity logo on the first team kit shorts, as well as fundraising via bucket collections throughout the season.

In return, St George’s Hospital Charity hope to support Tooting and Mitcham United FC by sharing the NHS discount on match tickets with NHS staff, using their connections to assist with their community engagement and collaborating on future events together.

CEO at St George’s Hospital Charity, Amerjit Chohan said: "When Ciaran contacted us, we were very touched that he chose to use this opportunity to support his local hospital and our local NHS heroes.

"During these unprecedented times, we are seeing so many acts of kindness in the hospital and our community and would like to thank Ciaran and Tooting and Mitcham United FC for this opportunity."

Chair at Tooting and Mitcham United FC, Caroline McRoyall said: "It is thanks to the generosity of our supporters that this opportunity has arisen to bring both organisations closer together and we look forward to working in partnership over the season."

Tooting and Mitcham United plans to donate an auction prize to St Georges Hospital's 'Claus for the Cause Christmas appeal'.
