Liverpool FC CEO Peter Moore has offered for the club’s stewards to assist with the current crowds at supermarkets due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Liverpool’s stewards have been volunteering to help with crowd control and also assisting the elderly with their shopping at supermarkets.
After recent images that have been shared of the manic scenes at various supermarkets as well as the long queues, a number of branches have introduced restrictions to prevent panic buying and stockpiling during the coronavirus epidemic.
Peter Moore announced his club’s stewards were on hand to help manage the situation, he wrote on social media:
“Message to supermarket managers here on Merseyside. Our stadium stewards here LFC are offering their time and expertise in volunteering to help with crowd control, queue management, parking control, assisting the elderly and infirm taking their groceries to their cars, etc.
“They are truly the best in the business and would be delighted to help in whatever way you would deem appropriate (and safe) on your premises. Please DM me so that I can put you in contact.YNWA”
The latest gesture from Liverpool Football Club follows on from their recent donation of £40,000 to help foodbanks.
