The former United stars are giving back to the NHS.
They were legends on the pitch, and now they’re doing some seriously classy stuff off of it, as Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs are pitching in to help out those in need during the coronavirus outbreak. In closing their pair of hotels – Hotel Football at Old Trafford and Stock Exchange in the city centre – from March 22nd, the duo have promised that no staff will be made redundant or miss out on pay because of the pandemic. But, with plenty of empty rooms now available, they’ve decided to help the NHS at the same time. (Featured image: @hotelfootballuk)
The former Manchester United stars have been co-ordinating with Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, and are now offering up their rooms to accommodate healthcare workers and medical personnel on the frontlines of the fight against the virus. The aim is to provide tired and stressed out workers with a safe space to relax in between shifts, so that they can better take care of those in need. It amounts to 176 beds, and they’ll be available for use from Friday onwards.
Neville said that “By offering both our hotels without cost to the health service we hope that this gives some support to the healthcare professionals in a time when they need it.” Cracking effort lads – and that’s coming from a Liverpool fan…
