Shirts worn by Norwich City players for their game against Preston North End on Good Friday (3pm UK) will feature an NHS rainbow logo and be auctioned off via the club’s eBay account.
Proceeds from the auctions will go to Norfolk’s three main hospitals – the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in Norwich, the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.
The auctions will aim to raise key funds for each hospital and give back to those who’ve gone above and beyond during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The auction will be split in two. All matchworn shirts will be made live from Friday, April 2 at 7pm with all player issue shirts being made available at the same time on Friday, April 9.
It's the latest in a number of COVID-19 intiatives run by the club over the past 12 months. Throughout the pandemic, club employees have been calling the lonely and vulnerable for a chat, delivering cakes and signed shirts to care homes and hospitals and delivering a number of other projects with money raised by players, senior staff and board members in the Canaries COVID-19 Community Project.
