A BRADFORD football club’s players have been showing their appreciation for all the key workers and the NHS with their amazing fundraising efforts.

FA Charter Standard Football club Idle FC has six teams ranging from juniors right through to open age, with over 200 members who play football each week.

Prior to the outbreak of Covid-19, the club had been working on fundraising events, hoping to feature all of the adults, children and coaches to raise funds for training equipment for the club, but were unable to complete these due to the national lockdown.

Instead, the club turned to a different fundraising idea - one that would also see donations go towards supporting the NHS, by creating a shirt in support of the NHS.

Marcus Strudwick, chairman at Idle FC, explained: "With many of the player’s parents working as key workers and nurses, we came up with the idea of creating a shirt for club members to purchase.

"The shirt not only helps support the NHS but continues our club's efforts to raise funds for training equipment.

"It also helps us to keep the seniors and juniors engaged in sport and helps everyone stay fit and healthy for a great cause."
