I have decided to set up a JustGiving page to help raise valuable funds for our amazing NHS.

Every one of the brilliant staff and wonderful volunteers are doing a fantastic job during this unprecedented time whilst we're asked to stay at home.

So, whilst you're at home, I have set up a challenge for you;

Do 10

Donate 10

Nominate 10

Simply complete 10 consecutive keepy ups, donate £10* through the JustGiving page and nominate 10 more people to continue the challenge.

*If you can't afford £10, please donate whatever you can.

The money raised will be distributed through the NHS Together Charity which provides essential support for the amazing staff and volunteers. Support such as;

Health and emotional support

Wellbeing packages

Accommodation expenses

Travel expenses

Parking expenses

Rehabilitation programs once we get through the pandemic.

It, also, provides support for patients when they leave hospital.

If you haven't been nominated, there's nothing to stop you getting involved. Just do your 10 keepy ups, donate £10 and then nominate 10 people! You starting the challenge could make a huge difference in how much is raised!

The keepy ups don't have to be done with a football. It could be a cricket bat and ball, a tennis racket and ball, a hockey stick and ball, a rugby ball... even a toilet roll!

Once you've completed your 10 keepy ups, please donate through the following link;

When you nominate 10 people, please include the hashtag #KeepItUpForTheNHS

There are some videos on our YouTube channel if you need some more inspiration.

As of Thursday 16th July, the total raised so far is £2,000! Thank you so much to everyone that has supported and taken part in our fundraising challenge!

Thank you and good luck!
