Inverness Caledonian Thistle have announced a new initiative to deliver care packages to the vulnerable during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Caley Jags’ TogetherNess drive sees them ask football fans and businesses to donate food essentials and household items – like soap, hand sanitiser and toilet paper, so they can be delivered to senior citizen season ticket holders.

A statement said: “The chairman, CEO and board of directors are particularly keen to support our senior citizen season ticket holders who may be feeling isolated or vulnerable during the extremely challenging time.

“It is a fact that at ICTFC, a very large percentage of our season ticket holders are senior citizens and as they have shown us amazing support in the past, it is only right that we try and return some of that support.

“To that end, we’re today announcing the launch of ICT TogetherNess. We’d like to call on anyone, be they football fans or businesses, to help us ‘support our supporters’.”

The statement continued: “The main reception at Caledonian Stadium will be open from 9am-5pm Monday to Friday to accept donations and to ensure that we also continue to support our partners and the local business community, we will publicly thank any companies who help to support this campaign through our various online channels.

“It is our aim to extend this programme to the larger community going forward and we have already spoken to one food bank to look at the possibility of some joined up thinking and deliveries, but we need to get up and running first.”

Manager John Robertson, who will deliver the parcels along with players and staff, said: “At this very difficult time, everyone at ICTFC believes that we must do our best to make a difference to the lives of our fellow Highland citizens and the football club can be the hub to help make that difference.”
