COMMUNITY SPIRIT: Watford FC set up ‘Hornets at Home’ initiative to help vulnerable fans

 Published on: 22nd March 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Watford FC

Watford FC have written to all its elderly and disabled supporters in a bid to offer support to them during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The initiative, called ‘Hornets at Home’, offers the help of fellow Watford supporters to do things such as picking up the shopping, or some general maintenance tasks which many people will now struggle to do.

The club say that the initiative is a chance to show why the family and community values are so important to their supporters.

On the Watford FC website, a statement read: “Watford fans’ sense of community is renowned within the football industry – and now here’s a chance to show why we’re The Original Family Club with our ‘Hornets At Home’ initiative, during what’s set to be a difficult time due to the coronavirus outbreak.

“The club will be writing to all of its elderly supporters and those with a disability, drawing information from its records held, offering the help of fellow Hornets’ fans.

“So, we’re making a general appeal to Watford fans who’re in a position to help others to show our famed community ethos – embedded into our club by the late, great Graham Taylor OBE and Sir Elton John – and come forward to volunteer.”
