Chosen charities meet their Player Ambassadors

Bradley Dack, Charlie Mulgrew, Darragh Lenihan and Corry Evans to support local causes

20 July 2019

International stars Charlie Mulgrew, Corry Evans and Darragh Lenihan will each have new roles to play for Rovers this season.

The trio have been selected as Player Ambassadors for Rovers’ three chosen charities, The Queen’s Lancashire Regiment Veterans Charity, Fight Like a Kid and ELHT&Me, the official charity of East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.

Bradley Dack will also continue in his role as Player Ambassador for Rovers’ official charity, Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, for the second season running.

Representatives from Rovers’ charity partners were invited to the club’s Senior Training Centre, where they were introduced to their designated player to discuss how they will work together during the upcoming campaign.

Each player will play an integral role in helping to raise valuable funds and awareness for the local worthy causes throughout the 2019-20 Championship season.

The charities will each benefit from fundraising and awareness events held throughout the season, which will include a designated matchday at Ewood Park.

They will also receive signed merchandise, match tickets and player appearances to help raise the profile and fund the vital work they do, aimed at improving the lives of people in the local community.  

Last season, Rovers helped to raise over £9,000 for East Lancashire Hospice, Child Action Northwest and Age UK Blackburn with Darwen.

2019-20 Player Ambassadors:

Bradley Dack – Blackburn Rovers Community Trust

Charlie Mulgrew – The Queen’s Lancashire Regiment Veterans Charity

Corry Evans – Fight Like a Kid

Darragh Lenihan – ELHT&Me
