Even in these strange times, you can now show your support for Northampton Saints by wearing one of the Club’s new Black, Green and Gold facemasks.
Available to pre-order now from the Saints Store for dispatch from Monday 1 June, masks are available in adult (£7*) and junior (£6*) sizes, with all profits from sales being split between the NHS and Northampton Saints Foundation – who are continuing to remotely deliver many of their vital programmes to vulnerable young people in Northamptonshire during the lockdown period.
The masks, which also display a Saints crest across the front, are CE certified barrier masks and are made of two-ply interlock polyester.
"We saw a fantastic opportunity to raise some money for our NHS heroes and Northampton Saints Foundation."Will Peasgood, Head of Retail
They are machine washable at 60 degrees, making them fully reusable, and are designed to complement protective measures and social distancing rules.
“First and foremost, it’s really important to understand that these masks do not provide medical-grade protection, and so we are not taking any supplies away from front-line key workers,” said the Club’s Head of Retail Will Peasgood.
“But we were also aware that the demand from members of the public for personal protective equipment is getting larger by the day.
“We saw a fantastic opportunity to raise some money for our NHS heroes and Northampton Saints Foundation, as well as giving our supporters the chance to continue to wear our colours with pride despite the unique situation we all find ourselves in.
“This is an extremely challenging time for all charities; Saints Foundation’s ability to fundraise has been drastically reduced, but they continue to work with some of Northamptonshire’s most at-risk students – the additional emotional, practical and financial pressures on them and their families at the moment mean they need our support more than ever.”
* Plus £4.50 postage (The Saints Store is currently reliant on DHL’s courier service for online orders, meaning postage is charged per shipment rather than the size/weight of the order. You can add additional items to your order, and we will despatch once the facemasks are in stock.)
