Glenn Murray has told why Albion players have dug deep to give local charities a big boost. Seagulls stars have set the ball rolling with a six-figure contribution to Albion As One, a new fund supporting charities who have found it tough to raise cash during the coronavirus crisis.
Glenn Murray said: “There’s a collective desire from everyone within the squad and the club to do something for local charities suffering as a result of the crisis. The people of Brighton and Hove and across Sussex have always been there for this football club going back a long way and, as players and representatives of the club, we want to show the same support we’ve had from our community, week in, week out for so long. We want to kickstart this fund with the aim of raising a substantial amount for local good causes. We will then work with the club’s staff to agree how we will distribute the money raised amongst local charities who’ve been hardest hit as a result of the coronavirus.”
Albion’s senior management and players have been in regular dialogue throughout the coronavirus crisis. The players have already made a private and significant donations to three local charities a month ago.
