How one Reading Sunday League club is supporting the NHS

Reading & District Sunday League side Thames Valley Railway have launched a new away kit supporting the NHS during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The club, who play in Division 4, held a design competition on social media and through kit partner have produced a stunning white change strip, and donate £5 from every one sold to an NHS Charities Together JustGiving page.

Shirts have been modelled around Reading, including at the foot of the towns station building with an impressive backdrop.

How to buy a shirt

Shirts can be purchased directly by emailing [email protected] with the size you require and delivery details. Thomas will then email you an invoice for the shirt which is £20 plus postage and packaging for the white away shirt or £28.72 for the Orange goalkeeper shirt. In the email with the invoice there is a ‘click to pay’ button which takes you straight to checkout to pay online.

A spokesperson for the club said: “Once your shirt arrives we pay £5 straight to the NHS through our NHS Charities Together JustGiving page and we leave a message thanking you for purchasing a shirt and helping us raise funds so you can see the donation yourself.
