Football for Frontline Workers

by Tristar Football Club in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

We did it
On 10th May 2020 we successfully raised £2,690 with 101 supporters in 28 days

The project aims to raise funds for the Western Trust, to buy needed PPE gear, or anything else required for frontliners to fight Covid-19.

Football for Frontliners

Tristar FC wishes to bring the whole footballing community together to raise funds for our heroes, the frontline workers battling Covid-19, in the Derry and Strabane area. Frontline workers such as the doctors, nurses, paramedics, carers, and so many more, not to mention the Taxi Drivers, Bus drivers, shop workers and so many more.

So this isn't about one club raising funds, it’s about all our local clubs working together.to support our health service.

What can we do as coaches?  We all know that our frontline workers are working all the hours there is to help our community, with insufficient PPE gear, knowing that they are putting themselves at massive risk.  I am proposing that we raise funds to support them.  Let’s bring together the whole footballing community of the Derry and Strabane area to raise funds for the Western Health & Social Care Trust to be placed where ever its needed most.

I am appealing to all of our local football clubs to get involved, coaches, players and their families and friends. If we do, perhaps it will spread throughout Northern Ireland and ‘Football for Frontliners’ will be able to support all health trusts within the province.

My challenge - STAY AT HOME, SHAVE YOUR DOME!  might not suit everyone, so what’s your challenge to help and support our frontline workers?

Greg Parke,

Secretary Tristar FC

P.S. A big shout out to current coaches, ex-players and families of our players currently working on the frontline, Paddy Morrison, Dr Conor Barr, Dr John O’Donnell and so many more.
