Brewery Field to become blood donation venue

The club is pleased to announce that The Brewery Field will become a blood donation venue in 2021.

Managing Director Tony Wilson met NHS representatives at the ground yesterday to assess its suitability and together they confirmed that the Neil Adams Sports Bar would serve as a suitable venue from May 2021.

Further details on how to give blood at The Brewery Field will be available in due course.  If you would like to give blood now, you can find out more about the process and how to do so here: https://www.blood.co.uk/the-donation-process/giving-blood-for-the-first-time/

Tony Wilson said: “As a community-focused football club, we are conscious of our ability to be a conduit for social value and we seek to use that wherever possible.

“We have been looking at ways our ground can be used to help the NHS, who have been even more of an inspiration to all of us over the last few months.  It turns out this is the most suitable way for now.  We’ll certainly do more where we can.

“As a club we’d like to thank the NHS for all they have done and we will be doing more to commemorate their extraordinary achievements next season, as we did in the season just gone.  I hope many will use the ground to give blood when the time comes.”

The Moors held a special “Emergency Services Day” last season for the home match vs AFC Telford on Saturday 25 January, which allowed free entry for anyone who worked for the NHS or the other emergency services.

The day featured a working fire engine and police unit in the ground during the match to help build community links and educate children on the emergency services.
