This week, Lidl Ireland launched the Lidl One Good Club™ programme for 2024 and are now seeking nominations from clubs across the country.

Following on from the success of the programme over the last four years, the retailer is excited to recruit another club in each county to undertake the 10-week initiative.

Lidl One Good Club™, developed and delivered in association with the retailer’s partners, the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and Jigsaw – the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, is a five-step youth mental health awareness programme for LGFA clubs which aims to raise awareness and improve understanding of mental health while empowering clubs to positively affect their members and communities.

The launch sees Lidl Ireland call on members from all clubs in Ireland to nominate themselves to participate in the programme commencing in March and running for the following 10 weeks. The 5 themes of the programme – Be Active, Take Notice, Connect, Give, and Keep Learning – are based on Jigsaw’s ‘5-a-day for your mental health’ framework which provide a simple set of evidence-based actions for people to improve their wellbeing. Participating clubs are encouraged to undertake activities and to capture the moments and share them on their social media accounts using the hashtag #OneGoodClub and logging them on the dedicated One Good Club portal where further resources and help are provided.

Clubs that complete all five steps in the programme will receive official Lidl One Good Club™ accreditation, as well as new jerseys for their club. Accredited clubs will also enter the running to win one of three funding awards available with a total value of €10,000. They will be awarded to the clubs selected by the judging panel to have demonstrated the following:

  • Most Innovative Initiative – €2,500
  • Strongest Community Involvement – €2,500
  • Best Overall Programme Engagement – €5,000

The programme is once again supported by the Lidl One Good Club™ ambassadors who are fantastic role models for young people in their counties and throughout the country.

Clubs are encouraged to enter via www.abettertomorrow-lidl.ie/onegoodclub/ where nominations will run until 14th February 2024, with one club from each country select to join the programme for 2024.

Speaking about the launch of Lidl’s One Good Club Programme for 2024, Eimear O’Sullivan, Corporate Affairs Director for Lidl Ireland said; “We’re delighted to once again bring together our valued partners, the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and Jigsaw – The National Centre for Youth Mental Health, to deliver the One Good Club programme in LGFA clubs across the country. The level of engagement, creativity and dedication of clubs in this programme over the last four years has been phenomenal and we’re really looking forward to seeing what activities this year’s clubs come up with. The success of the programme to date is testament to the dedication and compassion shown by all clubs involved and I’m sure that the impact of their efforts will be felt throughout their communities for years to come.”
