"It's hot and exhausting, but really nice to help out" - nurse Kirsty Andersen

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.

Kirsty Andersen is a student pediatric nurse at the NHS who has gained plenty of practical, hands-on experience over the last few months.

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

KA: I had a choice whether I wanted to opt in or opt out in my final six months of qualifying, so I said yes because it was an easy option for me. I've been in the hospital working on the Neonatal Unit and now on the children's ward, just helping out really.

canaries.co.uk: It must have been a testing time for everyone in the hospital.

KA: Yeah, it's been busy and with all the PPE, it does get hot and really exhausting, but it's really nice to help out.

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

KA: I couldn't quite believe it! It's really nice to feel appreciated.

canaries.co.uk: As a Norwich fan, what do you make of the new kit?

KA: I've been coming to games since I was really young but then didn't come for a while due to studying, but now I've come back! The new kit is really nice and I think people will like it. It's different.
