Fanzine pledge to those in Coronavirus self-isolation
Our partners Blowing Bubbles have pledged to send a copy of their latest issue to West Ham supporters in self-isolation because of the coronavirus crisis.
Editor David Blackmore has said there are only a limited number of copies left but he was keen to make sure they go to those in need in the UK.
“As coronavirus engulfs the world, with increasing numbers putting themselves in self-isolation as a response to the growing pandemic, it is easy to become swept up in the doom and gloom.
“But I want West Ham supporters to know there are kind-hearted people out there – particularly those I’ve seen on social media – who are shrugging off the sense of apocalypse by offering to lend a helping hand to those in need.
“At the end of the day, no matter what we look like, where we live, or how much money we have, getting sick reminds us that at our core we’re all just human. And in every country it’s the old, the sick and those already struggling who will be affected worse.
“That’s why we want to hear from those in self-isolation, or from the friends and family of those in self-isolation because we want to do our bit to make sure that no one in our community is being left to face this crisis without any act of kindness towards them.
“If just one person feels less lonely or isolated when faced with this pandemic, because they’ve had our latest issue posted to them, then our team will feel better about it.”
Contact David on firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure include your details, and the details of those in self-isolation.
