KIDDERMINSTER Harriers are doing their bit this week to aid the incredible NHS staff who are leading the UK’s fight against Coronavirus.
The nation continues to battle against the global pandemic, with 19,500 confirmed cases in the UK alone as of Sunday and, tragically, 1,228 deaths.
As an organisation, no body of people is doing more to try and help those in need than the workers in the NHS – including those who have volunteered to help at this time of national emergency.
They deserve all the help and support they can get, and Kidderminster Harriers are determined to do their own part, too.
Interim CEO, Neil Male, has confirmed the club, alongside GMS Group, have made a financial donation to the campaign to purchase extra protective equipment for staff at Russell’s Hall Hospital.
In addition, the club will this week be arranging a delivery of Domino’s Pizza to Worcester Hospital for staff to enjoy at some point this week. Furthermore, this is being paid for in part by Harriers players, staff and management, who are each making a donation.
Neil commented: “It’s vitally important for us as a football club to show, at this time more than ever, that we care about the local community – these are small gestures, but we hope they’ll make a difference”.
“The NHS and its staff are currently under incredible pressure and strain; we want them to know they are in our thoughts and that the entire country is grateful for what they’re doing.”
Everyone associated with Kidderminster Harriers wishes to extend its sincere thanks to each and every one of the NHS workers currently defending the country. You’re all heroes!
The club would also like to confirm that, at the time of writing, there has been no update from the National League in respect of the fate of the present playing season.
The most recent communication was that matches would resume on 3/4 April but, clearly, this will not be the case.
We will provide a further update once one is received.
