Eric Dier thanks Maidenhead Spurs for raising funds for NHS workers
Eric Dier made a video call to thank Maidenhead Spurs for their efforts in raising funds for the NHS at their local hospital.
The Spurs midfielder talked to Dan and Ed, two members of Maidenhead Spurs Official Supporters’ Club, to learn more about the recent fundraising efforts. The 26-year-old opened the call on a lighter tone by talking about his barbequing skills before getting to the crux of the matter.
The group had reacted to a post on Twitter by the Wexham Park frontline staff who have been unable to procure essentials due to their taxing schedule.
In order to help the staff, donations were requested for items that would make their life easier. The focus was on non-perishable food, household products, baby products, toiletries, and sanitary products.
The hospital was the closest to where the spokesmen stayed and got in touch with the senior sister in the emergency department to understand how they could help.
The post was then shared in the Maidenhead WhatsApp group, where they came up with the idea to raise funds for those who are risking their lives to save us.
Doing your bit, one community at a time
It is imperative that we stick together in times such as these and help those in need regardless of their caste, colour or where they may be from. In an era of globalization, compassion and sensibility should not be co-opted.
Football is a sport that brings people together. Spurs as a top Premier League side has a fan following all across the globe. By getting in touch with different groups, it is possible for us to help out each other. You may not be able to change the world, but you can help your local community.
