Coronavirus: Stags on the ball to help nurses

Posted onPosted on 30th Mar

Mansfield Town Football Club sent cases of cold drinks to respiratory nurses at King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton, on Monday following an appeal.

Stadium director Paul Broughton and operations executive Tina Broughton delivered more than 20 cases of cold drinks to the hospital.

Operations executive Tina Broughton said: “Our supporters’ liaison officer, Danielle Hett, was notified of an online appeal to donate cold drinks to respiratory nurses at King’s Mill.

“These are for the nurses’ break area. We were informed that, during 13-hour shifts, the nurses are provided with sandwiches but require cold drinks.

“Paul and I drove to One Call Stadium to gather every usable cold drink in stock and delivered them to King’s Mill. It’s the least we can do as the town’s professional football club.

“Everyone who works in the NHS and emergency services deserves our utmost gratitude, appreciation and support. Their selflessness is incredible at this time of national emergency.

“Even though it is a challenging time for everyone, it is encouraging to see many people’s qualities shine through within our community and country.

“There is a lot of goodwill and community spirit, and as a football club we take real pride in being at the heart of our community.

“Everyone at Mansfield Town stands united with the NHS and its staff, and asks everyone to continue to follow government guidelines in our unified attempt to overcome this pandemic.

“Together, we will come through this as a community and country.”
