Lumberjack Party returns to Lincoln in aid of mental health

The Lumberjack Party is returning to the Home nightclub in Lincoln this month, offering a great night out whilst raising crucial funds for an amazing cause.

Iain Maynard started the Lumberjack Party six years ago to raise awareness for cystic fibrosis (CF). Both his son and daughter were diagnosed with the genetic disorder at birth.

The events have raised a huge amount of money over the years for CF charities and awareness into how this disease affects people and their families.

For the latest Lumberjack Party, which this year takes place on Friday 27 December, Iain will instead be raising funds and awareness for the MIND mental health charity in memory of James Walker.

James was a good friend of Iain’s and was a well-loved Lincolnshire local but, a short time ago, he sadly took his own life.

With many people struggling more and more with mental health issues, Iain wanted to make this year the best Lumberjack Party to date and raise important awareness about mental health and how people don’t have to struggle on their own.

So, once again it’s time to start growing those beards, dig out those flannel check shirts and dust off the denim as five of the biggest music brands from across the city come together with a top line-up.

The event is free to attend for anybody wearing a lumberjack shirt and who purchase a 50% off drinks wristband (available here). Visit the Facebook page to find out more.
