Crawley Town and their main sponsors are helping feed key members of the NHS.

The League Two outfit have teamed up with principal sponsor, The People’s Pension, to fund four weeks of meals.

They have joined an initiative set up by Reds’ catering partners Strong Flavours to provide 100 meals per week for staff at Crawley and East Surrey hospitals, who are battling coronavirus on the frontline.

Crawley staff and players were invited to donate £20 of their April wages to get the scheme started.

Reds head of commercial Joe Comper said he was delighted but not surprised by the response.

He added: “Immediately we were able to fund a couple of weeks’ worth of meals.

"At the start of the outbreak, The People’s Pension had asked me if there was any way they could help us to support the community, so I put this idea to them and they jumped at the chance to offer help, by matching our donation to the fund and between us we’re providing four weeks’ worth of meals for our local NHS workers.

“I’m proud that the club has the community spirit to put something like this together in the space of days, and I’m also proud to have a principal sponsor who is so keen to support their local community as well.”

All Crawley players and most off-field staff are on furlough leave.
