The Crystal Palace Football Club Disabled Supporters Association (CPFCDSA) is pleased to announce a new partnership with SimPal, a charity dedicated to tackling digital poverty. This collaboration will help SimPal to offer vital assistance to those in need.
Chris Lewis, an avid Crystal Palace fan, founded SimPal and it works towards reducing the digital divide by providing access to essential technology such as free 6-month pre-paid SIM cards with 20G data per month and phones when available.
As a not-for-profit volunteer-led organisation, SimPal provides a unique support service that allows people living with cancer or life threatening conditions, or those affected by poverty, to remain connected with friends and family, healthcare services and the wider community.
The CPFC DSA is pleased to be promoting awareness of this significant issue amongst its members and encouraging donations from supporters.
Dave May, the Chairperson of CPFC DSA, is really excited about the new partnership with SimPal: "We're so happy about this! It's a brilliant chance for us to team up with other Palace fans and tackle a problem that affects lots of people in the UK. We can't wait to work together over the coming months and years."
Chris Lewis from SimPal added: "We're delighted that CPFC DSA chose us as their charity partner, and we look forward to working closely with them on this important mission. As a Palace fan myself, I know how special the DSA is for 'my club'. There are probably loads of supporters going through tough times, and by joining forces we can help those in need within our Palace family and the football community in general."
