You may be aware of the controversy around Premier League players wages at the weekend. It was suggested that players wages should be reduced by 30% due to the Covid-19 crisis and the impact on millions of employees.
If players were to give this 30% of wages to UK charities it would raise almost £1billion immediately that could be used to support our NHS or other good causes.
If all 500 players signed up collectively they would be raising £19, 090, 000 per week.
Everton took up the challenge and now have over 30% of their employees on board for Payroll Giving.
We encourage all Football clubs to adopt a Payroll Giving scheme and make a difference to UK registered charities today.
