The Football Association of Ireland have teamed up with Boots Ireland to help local communities by delivering medicines to vulnerable patients.

 FAI Development Officers around the country will volunteer their time to collect prescriptions and deliver them to the homes of people unable to make that journey.

Over 30 different stores will be involved across 13 counties as the Development Officers showcase that their role in community development can continue even when the football is on hold.

With support from the various local authorities, the Development Officers have volunteered to play their part in helping those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To avail of the service, patients or a family member simply need to call their local Boots pharmacy for more information.

Interim FAI CEO Gary Owens said that their Development Officers are at the very heart of sport in their communities and this programme offers them an opportunity to help those feeling the effects of the lockdown in a real and practical way.
