Fleetwood Town, alongside the club’s Community Trust and EFL partner Lifebuoy, helped promote awareness for Global Handwashing Day, which was last Saturday.
The initiative has grown since the outbreak of Covid-19. Because of this, each year on 15 October, more than 200 million people worldwide celebrate Global Handwashing Day as it helps push a happier, healthier future for all.
Lifebuoy’s mission is to educate five million children on the importance of hand hygiene by 2025 as teaching our children that handwashing matters is vital. The Official Hygiene Partner of the EFL has set up a kids' hand hygiene programme called ‘Soaper Heroes’ which has been put in place to improve kids' hand washing behaviours.
The aim of the programme is to help kids, and those around them stay healthy. If we can keep them away from having sick days from nasty germs, we can have them out playing sports and there is where you can help! Many clubs and kids are already participating in the programme, utilising engaging and educational football activities in their everyday training sessions.
Good hand hygiene doesn’t need to be difficult! By downloading the Lifebuoy Soaper Heroes programme, you will also receive the following:
- A welcome letter from EFL’s Soaper Heroes Ambassadors
