Argyle have teamed up with licensed merchandise partner The Terrace to produce Argyle-branded face masks - with all profits going to support the NHS in Plymouth.
Many members of the Green Army have been in touch with the club in the past few weeks, requesting Pilgrim-patterned masks to comply with government advice, and, thanks to our partnership with The Terrace, the club is pleased to be able to meet that demand, as well as continue to contribute to the local NHS Trust.
Carl Sewell, Director of The Terrace, said: "We are delighted to further support the club through our partnership, especially in such uncertain times for so many.
“The Argyle face mask is of high-grade quality and the fact we are in a position to be able to hand over profits to NHS Plymouth Hospitals Charity. Helping reward and support local staff and their wellbeing is something we pride ourselves on, the support Argyle fans have shown our brand is second to none.”
The face masks represent the next in a number of NHS supporting initiatives taking place at Home Park since the coronavirus crisis began.
Most notable, of course, is that the Mayflower Grandstand has been temporarily transformed for use as a routine phlebotomy and antenatal appointment centre. In addition, the club has committed to gifting over 500 match tickets to NHS staff as a part of our Crowdfunder campaign, while a match-worn shirt auction, organised by Argyle midfielder Antoni Sarcevic, raised over £10,000 for Plymouth’s NHS.
Argyle’s Head of Marketing and Communications, Jamie Yabsley, said: “We are grateful to our friends at The Terrace for working with us on this project, and we are delighted that any profits raised from the face masks will contribute to our local NHS.
“As a club, we have been clear from the outset that we have a role to play in our local community, and this is another opportunity to do just that.”
The Argyle branded face masks will be available via The Terrace website, at the price of £4.99. Click here to pre-order.
