Clachnacuddin are set to show their colours on their new third kit in support of charity Marie Curie next season.
The Highland League club have selected Marie Curie as its chosen charity which will be displayed on its third kit which they will wear in matches in the 2021/22 campaign.
The Lilywhites hope to raise awareness of the charity which provides nursing and hospice care to people suffering from cancer.
Clachnacuddin director Scott Dowling says the third kit, inspired by the charity, will be unveiled later in the summer.
“The club are delighted to work with Marie Curie and show our support to this great charity," he said.
“Cancer unfortunately effects all of us in some way throughout our lives and Marie Curie plays a key role in supporting those in need.
“The new third kit will officially be launched in the summer.
“We have worked closely with our kit supplier Errea over the past few months and are really pleased with the final outcome.
“The only give away I can say is that the shirts will be yellow to represent Marie Curie and this also fits in well with one of our club colours so it complements both parties well.
“Our hope is that along with raising some funds for Marie Curie, we can also help raise awareness of the great work that they carry out that so many benefit from.”
Marie Curie community fundraiser Vonnie Stevenson welcomed the link with the club.
She said: “We are absolutely delighted to be the chosen charity for the Clach kit for this coming season.
“As you can imagine it’s been an extremely testing time for Marie Curie as our nursing services are in the greatest demand at a time when so many of our usual fundraising channels have pretty much disappeared.
"Clach supporters are legends in the aream it will be great to be apart of the coming season where everyone is so desperate to celebrate normality again.”
Clachnacuddin manager Jordan MacDonald says cancer has affected so many people’s lives and is pleased the club wanted to help a charity which does so much for people impacted by the illness.
“It’s great that this is happening,” he said.
“Cancer is something that my family has been through and we know the work Marie Curie does.
"It’s a good partnership and one that I hope long continues.
“I have seen the tops and they look great and having Marie Curie involved is a good touch as well."
