"We've pulled together really well" - Dr Nick Jones

28 August 2020

We recently invited a selection of key workers to Carrow Road to help launch our 2020-21 away kit, and spoke to them about how they've supported the local community over the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nick Jones is a doctor in infectious diseases, and has naturally had to adapt to the current climate in his job.

canaries.co.uk: How have you supported the community over the pandemic?

NJ: I've been working on clinical work on wards assessing Covid and non-Covid patients, working in the labs, and co-ordinating testing for staff for COVID-19.

canaries.co.uk: Has that presented a lot of different challenges?

NJ: Yeah, it's obviously been a busy time. All the hospitals have had to redesign their pathways, which has caused enormous challenges for everyone, but I feel like we've pulled together really well. We've been really privileged to have something that we can be getting on with to try to help in what we can.

canaries.co.uk: So have you been pleased with the response of the community?

NJ: I think it's been a great response. From what I've experienced, it's been a beautiful time of people pulling together and coming together for a common good. It's been tough for everyone - not just people on the front line - but families at home and everyone locked down. We pulled together and that was great to see.

canaries.co.uk: How did you react to being invited to the kit shoot at Carrow Road?

NJ: A mixture of surprise and excitement. It's been really fun and a beautiful day all round. The stadium looks glorious in the evening sunlight, so it's been brilliant and really fun.

canaries.co.uk: What do you think of the away kit?

NJ: I think it's gorgeous. It's a really nice design and the colours are beautiful. It's actually a really nice fit and that's the best thing I've found. I don't always fit shirts that well, but it's been really nice for me and I can't wait to get it on!
