Raising awareness of mental health

Ella Dagnall

Thumbs up with Darlo!

Thumbs Up With Darlo is a new campaign that aims to raise awareness of mental health, as well as fundraising for local charities that do such an amazing job in the region. 

The idea was inspired by our very own Ella Dagnall from the Darlington FC Girls Section. This campaign is very close to Ella’s heart as her middle brother suffers with mental health issues, and as a result has been hospitalised for over three years. Ella has expressed that she would like the campaign to encourage people to talk and seek help if they need it from the charities below.

So please join us in our movement to be kind, think positive, speak up and put your Thumbs Up With Darlo !




If you know of any local charities that would benefit from some fundraising, please let us know via messaging the page.
