Premiership stars support nurses pay campaign

That’s not a headline I thought I’d ever write. As reported in the Guardian, several football stars have signed up to the Mayday for Nurses
campaign and agreed to donate their wages for 13th May to help nurses in financial difficulty.

Nigel Medicore Reo Coker, Paul Robinson, Ryan Giggs, Gary ‘shop steward’ Neville and Micah Richards are among the players who have already pledged their supprt (btw, you can pledge too, by clicking the link above). Good on ’em, we say – it’s refreshing to see overpaid footballers contribute to the grossly underpaid nursing community.

A number of Premiership managers have also agreed to support the scheme, including Sir Alex Ferguson, Glenn Roeder and Sam Allardyce.

    Lucas Neill signed up?
    Nah. Thought not.

  2. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    Ouch – you got something against Lucas, Dom?

  3. cole says:

    Noticed Mohammed Al Fayed is donating a day’s pay to the cause. That should buy us a new health service!

  4. Dom says:

    Not massively, but considering his big fat wage packet, I’m sure he could spare a day’s worth. Whether he will or not is the big question.

    Lucas Neill already does plenty to keep nurses in work on a Saturday afternoon!
