Rovers support Rainbow Laces campaign

5 December 2019

Rovers will be joining clubs right across the EFL as they support Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign at Saturday’s match vs MK Dons.

The Club Doncaster Foundation projects took part in Stonewall's ‘Come Out Active’ campaign (November 25 - December 1) with participants posing with the Rainbow Flag and EFL and Rovers branded pennant.

On Saturday, the club will be backing the campaign further by using rainbow corner flags while skipper Ben Whiteman will be donning a rainbow captain’s armband.

The club are also inviting members of Doncaster Pride and Doncaster’s Out Youth to join us at the match.

Chair of Doncaster Pride and co-chair of UK Pride Organisers Network Jenny Dewsnap said: “It’s great to see my hometown club taking part in the Stonewall Rainbow Laces campaign.

“Campaigns like this are really important when it comes to educating and raising awareness and I’m so pleased to see my football club taking an active role in supporting LGBT people in Doncaster.”
