Goodison Park Sign Lights Up Blue For NHS And Autism

Goodison Park lit up in royal blue on Thursday evening in a gesture showing gratitude to NHS Staff and recognising World Autism Awareness Day.

For the second week in succession the nation joined in a round of applause to thank frontline NHS staff working selflessly to contain and treat coronavirus, as well as honour keyworkers including teachers, delivery drivers and cleaners.

Wembley Stadium, London’s Royal Albert Hall and the Principality Stadium in Cardiff were among significant landmarks turned into the NHS’s predominantly blue colour during last week’s period of appreciation.

A number of high-profile Everton figures including CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale and a host of first-team stars united to participate in the ‘Clap for our Carers’ initiative seven days ago.

And Everton’s 'Goodison' sign on top of the Sir Philip Carter Park End was cast in blue at 8pm on Thursday to coincide with this week's countrywide applause.

EVERTON SALUTES NHS STAFF

Blues from across the Club honour efforts of health workers during coronavirus outbreak.


The Club’s tribute doubled up to shine a light on World Autism Awareness Day.

Everton has matchday support in place for anybody identifying as neurodiverse, while the Club's Everton in the Community charity recently met with the NAS, experts from Alder Hey Children's Hospital and a group of GPs as part of a concerted effort to utilise sport to support families with experience of autism. 

Everton Football Club and Everton in the Community launched ‘Blue Family’, a coordinated outreach and engagement campaign to maintain contact with fans and provide vital support and assistance to some of the most vulnerable, socially isolated and at-risk members of the community in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Blue Family has also seen the Club and charity introduce a referral form enabling fans and the wider public to refer people they believe might need a friendly voice to speak to at this difficult time.
