NHS staff providing vital vaccines have been boosted by the gift of a signed Canaries shirt in appreciation for their hard work. 

The club's donation was handed to staff at the Norwich Community Hospital, part of a team which vaccinated a number of players back in December.

Carolyn Fowler, executive director of nursing and quality at Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust, said: “We’re delighted to receive the signed shirt from Norwich City Football Club thanking our wonderful vaccination team for their work - it will have pride of place in our Norwich Community Hospital vaccination clinic.

"Many of our staff are big Norwich City fans and were really excited to meet and vaccinate some of the team a couple of weeks ago.

"This is a lovely commemorative gesture in recognition of their role in this momentous NHS vaccination programme. It will definitely give our staff a boost."
