Forest Green Rovers have made their New Lawn ground available to the government in case they need more space for beds during the crisis.

They have also offered the club's Unicorn House building in Stroud town centre, which was previously home to 700 office workers but has now been vacated.

Forest Green have also opened their player hostel in the town for NHS staff and other key workers to use as overnight accommodation.

"Our first guest is a midwife - we have room for 12 people in total," owner Dale Vince said in a post on his Facebook page.

Nobody can challenge Captain Tom's fundraising for the NHS, which currently is over £25 million but I will take my hat off to Cheltenham Town FC who combined with Gloucester Rugby have raised nearly £7,000 for Gloucestershire NHS Hospitals.
Their staff are engaging in a sponsored head shave and that includes manager Michael Duff and his two sons.

I still want to beat them when football returns but will be happy to applaud them whenever that happens.

Technically he is not raising funds for the NHS, but for NHS Charities Together.
