Players raise up to £2,000 for the NHS so far

2 April 2020

In less than 24 hours nearly £2,000 has been raised by the Cheltenham Town players who have braved the shave to raise funds for the NHS.

Supporters have been generously donating in support of the players who have shaved their heads in an online Crowdfunder which will see the money made donated to Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Captain Ben Tozer came up with the idea after friends he knew in a rugby union team in Plymouth also took part in a head shave to raise vital cash for the NHS, and to show recognition for the amazing work they are doing on the front line amid the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking on BBC Radio Gloucestershire's drivetime programme this evening he described the donations that had already been received as "overwhelming".

Tozer and teammates Sean Long and George Lloyd have shaved their heads and it's still possible to donate towards their cause online on their Crowdfunder page.

Thank you to everyone who has shown their support to the lads.
