One Good Club™ launches for 2024

One Good Club™ launches for 2024

Monday, 29 January 2024

Lidl Ireland has launched its One Good Club™ programme for 2024 and is currently inviting nominations from clubs across Ireland.

Building on the success of the initiative over the past four years, the retailer is eager to enlist one club from each county for the 10-week initiative.

The One Good Club™ program, developed and delivered in collaboration with the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and Jigsaw, presents a five-step youth mental health awareness initiative for LGFA clubs. The goal is to enhance awareness, foster understanding of mental health, and empower clubs to make positive impacts on their members and communities.

Lidl Ireland is urging members from all LGFA clubs in Ireland to nominate themselves for participation in the program, set to kick off in March and span 10 weeks. The program is structured around five themes –

  • Be Active
  • Take Notice
  • Connect
  • Give
  • Keep Learning.

This aligns with Jigsaw’s 5-a-day for your mental health framework, offering a straightforward set of evidence-based actions for enhancing well-being. Participating clubs are encouraged to engage in activities and share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #OneGoodClub, logging them on the dedicated One Good Club portal that provides additional resources and assistance.

Clubs completing all five steps in the program will be awarded official Lidl One Good Club™ accreditation, along with new jerseys for their club. Accredited clubs will also stand a chance to win funding awards totaling €10,000:

  • Most Innovative Initiative (€2,500)
  • Strongest Community Involvement (€2,500)
  • Best Overall Program Engagement (€5,000).
Mícheál Naughton
Ladies Gaelic Football Association President
Following the successful and exciting launch of the 2024 Lidl National League season, it’s now time to seek expressions of interest for the 2024 Lidl Ireland One Good Club programme.

Once again, we expect a significant number of applications to participate in what has become an exceptional initiative and one that has the ability to transform the lives of participants and their local communities for the better. This is the ninth year of our partnership with Lidl Ireland and the One Good Club programme plays a key role in our annual activities. It is a vital component of our blossoming partnership and we are delighted once again to work alongside Lidl Ireland and Jigsaw to bring this programme to clubs across Ireland.

This is a hugely-important mental health initiative that is of huge importance to Lidl Ireland, the LGFA and Jigsaw and long may it continue.
Mike Mansfield
Director of Communications and Fundraising at Jigsaw
At Jigsaw, our core focus is on achieving better mental health outcomes for young people and the One Good Club™ programme is central to this ambition. Lidl One Good Club™ allows us to support, educate and empower young people and those around them, on sports grounds, workplaces, kitchen tables, high streets, online and more.

Grassroots programmes at this scale are hugely important and hugely impactful and we are delighted to work in partnership with Lidl and the LGFA once more.
Eimear O’Sullivan
Corporate Affairs Director for Lidl Ireland
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.

The program continues to enjoy support from the Lidl One Good Club™ ambassadors.  Interested clubs can submit their entries at www.abettertomorrow-lidl.ie/onegoodclub/, with nominations open until Wednesday, 14 February 2024. One club from each county will be selected to join the program for 2024.

Additionally, the Ladies Gaelic Football Association unveiled the LGFA TALK Project, a six-week initiative aimed at promoting positive mental health awareness among young members in Antrim, Armagh, Derry, Down, Fermanagh, and Tyrone. Clubs in these regions can be nominated for the project at https://forms.office.com/e/yJExZs7mgh.
