Lord's opens up for NHS and Local Community

Posted: 30 March 2020

In light of the current situation regarding the outbreak of Covid-19, MCC has been in continued dialogue with Westminster City Council as to how the Club can utilise elements of Lord’s Cricket Ground for the good of the community.

We are mindful of our responsibility as a sporting institution and as a member of the local community to play our part.

The close proximity of a number of hospitals to Lord’s gives the Club the opportunity to assist medical staff so they can concentrate on their ongoing battle against the virus.

MCC has currently provided 75 parking space at Lord’s for staff at Wellington Hospital, University College Hospital, and the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth. We are also providing storage areas for the Wellington Hospital – which is situated very close to the Ground.

MCC has provided food to City Harvest London, who help put fresh surplus food to good use in a sustainable way, redistributing to organisations that feed the hungry.

We are continuing to work closely with our local community, hospitals and organisations to offer support as best we can during this period.
