Stoke City’s James McClean makes generous coronavirus gesture



Stoke City winger James McClean is doing his bit to help the public during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Republic of Ireland international has made a donation to provide vital supplies for people in his home town of Derry.

The Covid-19 outbreak has prompted panic buying in many areas, leaving certain items in short supply.

“We’ve made a donation towards nappies, medicines, toilet roll, baby supplies, cleaning products etc which will be made into hampers and given out at the ‘Corned Beef Tin’ (building in the Creggan area) over the next few days when the full stock is brought in,” McClean told the Derry Journal.

“It’s a small gesture but one that I hope can go along way in helping.

“Hopefully this virus is gone soon and people can get on with their lives as normal but for now I hope everyone stays safe and well.”

Stoke‘s season is currently on hold, having been suspended until at least April 3 due to the global public health emergency.

The EFL is hoping to get the campaign completed, when it is safe to do so.
