ACTRESS Michelle Keegan has proved even more of an off the pitch hit by donating her fee for a video voiceover to the NHS.
The former Coronation Street star provided the words on a promotional tape to launch hometown club Stockport County’s new kit.
But rather than pocket her wage, the girl from the Woodley area of the town has added it to the pot going to the Stockport NHS Foundation Trust.
The National League outfit donated £75,000 at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Now, combined with Michelle’s donation and other fundraising initiatives, it brings the total to £89,000.
County have also gifted the sleeve sponsorship to the Stockport NHS Foundation Trust for the upcoming season, with a donation being made for every shirt sold.
Owner Mark Stott said: “We cannot thank our local NHS enough for their heroic work during these difficult times.
“As a community Club we will do everything we can to support our local healthcare and key workers.
“We would like to thank Michelle for supporting our efforts and look forward to welcoming her to Edgeley Park next season.”
Louise Robson, Chief Executive of Stockport NHS Foundation Trust said: “We’re proud to see our logo on the shirts, and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone at the club, and to Michelle Keegan too, for all they have done for us.”
