We will also have collection tins around the stadium if the public would like to make a donation to this wonderful and hard working charity.”

This iniative, driven by Lincoln Red Imps, is invaluable in terms of increasing awareness of the work we do and helping us reach those who may need our support. All of us at Cancer Relief would like to say a huge thank you to Lincoln Red Imps for their support."
