During the current Covid-19 pandemic that is currently affecting the whole of the UK and several other countries across the world, Sheffield United are demonstrating a desire to support the local community and the most vulnerable individuals within it.

As Easter approaches, the Club have made a substantial donation of chocolate eggs in Blades mugs to the S2 Food Bank located at St Swithun's on Cary Road (S2 1JP).

The S2 Food Bank is a network of community and faith organisations who have come together to provide food parcels to those in need who live in the surrounding areas of Bramall Lane.

Operations Director Dave McCarthy remarked: "The Club are pleased that these chocolate Easter eggs and mugs will be put to good use and we hope the youngsters receiving the goodies enjoy them, along with their families from the local area, stay safe and well."

This is latest commitment of United assisting the community in addition to the NHS and Government in the current pandemic, with the Bramall Lane car park being used free of charge for NHS staff, whilst members of United staff have also been given the green light to sign up for the NHS volunteering scheme in lieu of regular day-to-day duties at the Club.

The Club has also donated a substantial amount of sanitiser and wall units to Sheffield City Council for use in sheltered housing and independent living schemes for the elderly, whilst a number of players have recorded individual messages for the Club's nominated charities.
