Community club Ulverston go on shopping spree for NHS staff

Cumbrian amateur club Ulverston have been working hard behind the scenes to help the NHS staff at Furness General Hospital.

All levels of rugby league in the UK has been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And with time on their hands, Ulverston players have carried out a huge shopping trip for all the NHS staff at Furness General Hospital.

All the essential items that were purchased will be distributed in a marquee as the NHS staff leave for home after a long shift in these difficult times for everyone.

The community club raised Β£300 for the NHS and then went on a trolly dash around McClures in Windermere to collect essential items for the NHS staff at Furness General Hospital.
