Grant in salary sacrifice

Section:  Sport  | Tags:

UMFRIES born footballer Grant Hanley and his fellow Norwich City players are donating a percentage of their salaries to help those impacted by COVID-19.

Over £200,000 will be used to buy and distribute food and essential toiletry packages for those in need in the Norwich and the wider Norfolk community.

This move by the Canaries makes them one of the first Premier League teams to donate their wages to these great causes.

Norwich City club captain Hanley said: “There are clearly a lot of complexities and discussions happening at this time, but right now this absolutely is the best thing we can do for our community. “As a group of players, we wanted to stand up and do our bit. The lads have heard first-hand stories and challenges that some of our supporters are currently facing.”

He added: “We need to make sure we’re reaching out and helping those who have been hit hard and are struggling at this time.”
