In late 2018, the Lady Imps Supporters Association (L.I.S.A), with funding from the Football Supporters Federation teamed up with the Bangla Bantams of Bradford City to send a positive message to football supporters that clubs should be a welcoming place for all as part of the #FansForDiversity scheme.
In October, a group of L.I.S.A. members made the trip over to West Yorkshire where they were hosted by the Bangla Bantams where they took in a tour of the Northern Commercial Stadium before being introduced to a culinary feast of flavours. After that very successful trip where the groups came together through their love of food and football, the supporters from Bradford were to come into Lincolnshire and be given a tour of their own taking in a trip to Sincil Bank and then onto a trip to both the Battle of Britain Memorial and the home of the Red Arrows, RAF Scampton.
Both visits highlighted the positivity that can be built through a love of the beautiful game, no matter what community, gender, race or religious belief that you come from.
