West Ham United have released a video on the club’s Twitter page to show their appreciation for those working amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
Hammers captain and club legend Mark Noble is at the forefront of the post, explaining his own and the club’s gratitude for all the NHS staff and key workers risking their own lives to save others.
Thousands of people across the UK are contributing in a bid to stop the spread of the COVID-19; doctors, nurses, social workers, the emergency services are just a few areas of work that are part of this.
And West Ham are showing their appreciation via the campaign ‘Hammers Heroes’. The club has asked fans to send in stories about Hammers fans who are essential workers, highlighting why they are so special and all about their association with West Ham.
You can send your stories here and when the season recommences, a selection of them will be honoured in the Official Programme and on a matchday at London Stadium.
The campaign has sparked plentiful reaction on social media…
