Coronavirus: Cambridge United to dedicate a free match day to NHS workers on football's return
Cambridge United will offer a free match-day ticket to NHS workers when football returns.
The U's have joined football club's across the country by promising to provide the opportunity to visit the Abbey Stadium for a game to those on the frontline in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic.
Whenever football returns to the Abbey, United want to collectively honour NHS workers at a designated fixture.
Cambridge United chief executive officer Ian Mather said: "The selected match day will provide everybody associated with our football club an opportunity to show our immense gratitude to all those who are currently fighting the coronavirus on our behalf.
"We also hope that this provides something small for our local NHS workers to look forward to in the coming weeks and months. These are indeed difficult times for us all, but with small acts of kindness across our wonderful community accompanied by the fantastic skill of our NHS workers, we can and will come through this together."
United are also running their Here for U's campaign. The community careline number is 01223 632129, and lines are open from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
