Football Injuries
« on: August 24, 2021, 11:22:38 AM »
Hi

Every Saturday from around 11am through till around 4.45pm and again on Sunday Mornings, hundreds, if not thousands of local people are in parks, fields and stadia watching or playing football and other high impact sports.

Every weekend, without fail, the A & E department will see quite an influx of visitors with sprains, breaks and fractures and head injuries sustained by people playing the beautiful game.

Our hospital however, regardless of how brilliant the staff and service provision given, is crumbling and is now very dangerous with over 200 props holding up the roofs in public access areas.

Wards have had to close to be made safe and it's getting worse.

There is a petition that requires 10,000 signatures to get a response from the Government. 

This petition needs just 380 more signatures to get that response.

Can i ask, that as a club,  we help push this over the line today. If you haven't signed, please do so.

Then share the petition link via email, WhatsApp, Fb, Linkedin etc and get this done today.

If you administer an email group, or FB group,  share this YET AGAIN with a personal plea if that's what it takes.


Thanks in advance

Let's just get this done.

10,000 is where we'll be.

Even the eternal optimist in me wouldn't dare to suggest 100,000

I think for a town of 40,000 to get 1/4 of the population to sign is a good job done.

It keeps the campaign in the public eye and galvanizes people to focus on something we all care for.

Fair enough, but the QE does service a far bigger area than just the town of KL. 

The amount of people in its catchment area is 250,000.

The map of the signatories reflects just that. Higher density in West Norfolk and fades out as you get further away.

Similar to the fan base really!
