West Ham goes orange for SFH
West Ham United players sported Saint Francis Hospice t-shirts in the clubs’s latest show of support for the charity.
Fans and supporters were thrilled to see their Hammers heroes wearing t-shirts with the Hospice’s logo while training before Sunday's (21 March) Premier League match against Arsenal and during the pre-game warm-up at the London Stadium.
While Covid-19 restrictions mean fans are currently unable to attend games in person, the club used its social media platforms and matchday programme to speak out about our care and support to the local community in east London and Essex, sharing the experience of a family who was cared for by the Hospice, and calling on fans to donate.
‘We are delighted to be working with West Ham United Football Club once again this season,” said Pam Court, Chief Executive Officer at the Hospice.
“The partnership over the last 3 seasons continues to go from strength to strength and we are delighted the club has been able to continue its support throughout the pandemic.”
Earlier this month striker Michail Antonio also joined the Hospice’s very first virtual thank you evening, praising our supporters who attended for all their fundraising efforts to help local people who are seriously ill.
“Everybody at West Ham United is proud of the partnership we have with Saint Francis Hospice,” said Michail Antonio.
“The staff and volunteers do incredible work and they’ve had to deal with extremely challenging times over the last year.
“Fortunately, the hospice has some great supporters who have been helping to ensure they can continue to provide patients and their families with the care they need, and so I was pleased to join the call to hear more about what they’ve been doing and say thank you to all involved.”
