Former Wimbledon tennis champion and world number one, Sir Andy Murray has sent his support to the staff at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
The Scot, who visited the hospital before the coronavirus outbreak for a scan, revealed that he has also made a donation to the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT).
In a recorded message, which has been shared with the hospital staff who are working to treat Covid-19 patients, he said: “Everyone there was fantastic and extremely helpful. I have made a donation to the charity to say thank you very much for everything that you’re doing.”
“This is obviously an extremely difficult time for everyone but none more so than for the healthcare workers, so I just wanted to say a big thanks for all of your hard work, dedication and the sacrifices that you’re making at this time for all of us.”
A spokesperson for ACT said: “Like Sir Andy, we are in awe of the Addenbrooke’s staff who are working every day to save patients in impossible circumstances.
“We’d like to thank him very much on behalf of our NHS heroes for his kind donation to Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust’s ‘Help your hospital’ appeal. And we’d encourage people to be a champion like him and also donate at helpyourhospital.co.uk or text NHSHEROES 10 to 70085 to donate £10.”
