Saints deliver the right prescription

Season Review - Helping Hand, Southampton

Southampton FC's charity, Saints Foundation, made sure vulnerable people received their medication during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vulnerable members of the public were given a helping hand by Saints Foundation, the charity of Southampton FC, during the COVID-19 crisis as staff helped deliver prescriptions to homes across the region.

Through their #SaintsAsOne campaign, Saints Foundation joined forces with Southampton City Council and Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to help those who were self-isolating or shielding during the pandemic.

After setting up a hotline so vulnerable people could outline their needs, club staff collected and delivered more than 2,000 medical prescriptions to local residents and remained in contact throughout the entire COVID-19 lockdown, ensuring anybody self-isolating could regularly see a friendly face.

Treve Sedgeman, 80, is one of many Southampton fans being supported by the initiative.

He said: "Saints Foundation bring my medication every week or fortnight, and they are absolutely brilliant.

"Words can't describe what they have done, they are absolutely magnificent."
