St John’s Hospice are benefitting from the Shrimps’ FA Cup campaign this year, as stadium sponsors, Mazuma, have donated their sponsorship space on Morecambe FC’s shirts to the Hospice. That means our logo will appear on the front of the club’s shirts throughout the campaign that started at Maldon and Tiptree last weekend.

Morecambe Football Club said “We worked with Mazuma on this and we thought it would be a great idea if we could use the shirts to help raise money for a local charity. St John’s Hospice is one of many local charities that has suffered as a result of the pandemic and we hope they will be able to raise some much-needed funds.”
Suzanne Parker, Head of Marketing at Mazuma said: “We are delighted to be supporting St John’s Hospice with the shirt sponsorship deal. A charity close to the hearts of many of our employees, the hospice is a vital service to so many in our region. Sadly, the latest pandemic has had a huge impact on their fundraising efforts, with many events being cancelled. We wanted to do something to help and hope this donation will encourage others to support the hospice however they can.”
With Morecambe’s win on the 8th, the shirts will be seen again in the next round, where the Shrimps will be playing at home against Solihull Moors at the Mazuma stadium, and hopefully many more times after that!
We are also thrilled to be able to say Mazuma have chosen St John’s Hospice as their charity of the year.
