Being a Stoke fans comes with its up & it’s downs, as fans we are open to ridicule from rival clubs fans. One thing we stand proud and say is that Stoke FC is a proud old club with history of changing the game. One thing that we stand above all other clubs is it’s community spirit which runs from the top right down to the bottom.
The recent pandemic has shown just what a great club, we support. The owners set the benchmark and those bellow follow in their shadow.
The club through its Community Trust raises hundreds of thousands yearly for local charities. On top of that the Clubs CEO Tony Scholes raised £100k for the Dougie MAC Hospice as part of a team that skied to the Artic circle.
The owners right at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic stated even before the government made grants available that they would pay all Staff not only at the club but at bet365 100% of their wages till August, then Denise Coates via her foundation, has donated £10 million to the NHS.
The good will does not stop at those that run the club, the players have also stood up to be counted too. Joe Allen & James McClean have made very generous cash donations to the Donna Louise hospice. Tom Edwards has donated hundreds of items to help the NHS staff cope with wearing PPE during long shifts looking after Coronavirus patients.
Danny Batth has his own foundation which has donated 300 parcels of food & toiletries to the Black Country Hospital.
These are just the things that have made the press, I’m almost certain their are many more charitable donations made by the players.
