Today, Sale Sharks have announced a charity partnership with Place2Be. The Premiership Rugby Union club have chosen Place2Be to be their charity partner for the year, and will feature the Place2Be logo on their kit.

The 2019/20 match kits with the Place2Be logo will be released tomorrow with the Place2Be logo. The club hopes this will help raise awareness of Place2Be’s work and the importance of supporting young people to talk about their emotions. This is the first time a charity logo has featured on their playing kit, and marks the beginning of an exciting year for the club and Place2Be.

This an unmissable opportunity for the Club to partner with them for the season ahead, highlighting the great importance of children's mental health and promoting the excellent work that Place2Be do in this field. Michelle Orange

Sale Sharks co-owner, Simon Orange, and his wife Michelle are longstanding supporters of Place2Be, particularly through their sponsorship of the BAFTA Kids Roadshows with Place2Be. In 2019, Michelle was on the Place2Be Wellbeing in Schools Awards judging panel.

Speaking on behalf of Sale Sharks, Michelle Orange said: ​"Sale Sharks are thrilled to have Place2Be as the first ever charity to be featured on our playing kit. Having personally supported them since 2016, I felt this an unmissable opportunity for the Club to partner with them for the season ahead, highlighting the great importance of children's mental health and promoting the excellent work that Place2Be do in this field. Off-the-pitch our Community Trust will work closely with the Place2Be team to establish localised programmes to promote mental wellbeing for children and I know that on-the-pitch our players will wear the logo with pride on the back of their shirts."

Place2Be is absolutely delighted that Sale Sharks has chosen us as their charity partner this year. Their support will really help shine a light on our important work improving children’s mental health and wellbeing in schools in the North West and across the UK. We’re delighted that the team is proud to wear the Place2Be logo, helping to spread the message that we all need to look after our mental health. We are looking forward to working with them on a community outreach programme in the months ahead. Catherine Roche, CEO of Place2Be
