For many of us the crisis that is Coronavirus in our society is more long-lasting and worse than we could have imagined just a few short weeks ago. We are now a week into social isolation which is having a heartbreaking effect on people and families in all sorts of ways.
It’s at times like these that whilst football in the scheme of things doesn’t matter, the community around a football club does. We have an opportunity to continue to come together and do what we can to make a difference. That is why we are proud of all our staff who have volunteered their time to contact some of our most experienced and long-standing supporters to raise spirits and tell them how valued they are.
Not all heroes wear capes. This is an ‘often used’ phrase but at times like this, the true meaning comes to the fore. Fear and anxiety are a reality of everyday life at the moment but there are people that are continuing to leave home to do the jobs we need, putting themselves and their families at risk to ensure our safety. We salute and thank you for your bravery and the difference you are making to people’s lives.
What can we do as a Wrexham AFC fanbase to make a difference? We can come together as one to say thank you.
Wrexham AFC salutes our frontline heroes online collective ‘thank you’ – Tuesday 31st March 7:45pm Kick-Off
At 7:45pm next Tuesday 31st March for 90 minutes we would like the Wrexham AFC Community to come together online ‘as if going to a match’ to say thank you to these frontline heroes. Frontline heroes are anybody who is a key worker leaving home to keep us all going: our wonderful NHS staff, a care worker, a factory worker making the food we need, a delivery driver, police, fire service, teacher, someone working in a supermarket or indeed someone volunteering to do the shopping for a vulnerable other. We will all know somebody putting others before themselves. What to do:
- Choose your social media platform - Twitter or Facebook
- Post a picture of a person you are thanking or just their name, put a short message saying how much you appreciate them, and really important, finish the post with #WrexhamAFCThankYou or #CPDWrecsamDiolch so that we know you are ‘at the game’
- Tag the person into the post if possible
- We'll go through them and share on our channels
