Players Support Boot The Virus Fundraiser

Bid On Items To Raise Money For NHS Charities

1 May 2020

Mark Howard, Jay Spearing, Nathan Delfouneso and Joe Nuttall have pledged their support to the Boot the Virus campaign, which aims to raise funds for NHS charities.

The four Seasiders have each donated a pair of signed boots to the cause, with the items now available to bid for online

The campaign was created by Kenny Marland and his partner Joanne Dalton to unite the football community across the UK in a bid to raise funds for the incredible NHS heroes, with Kenny currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment in his fourth battle against cancer.

“I have a personal affinity with the NHS heroes due to my vulnerable situation, I am frustrated at having to stay at home when I would rather be volunteering to help the wonderful people at the NHS," Kenny said. 

“I was pondering how I could combine my passion for football and help out, then the idea of Boot the Virus came to me in a chat with Joanne. 

"I know times are difficult right now, but the plan is for all donated items to go to an online auction via our website, giving fans the opportunity to own a piece of sporting memorabilia with 100% of the monies raised going directly to the NHS.

“It helps the heroes in the NHS and brings some joy to football fans by owning such an item.”
