“The local community has been a great help and support to Bonagee United over the years so it is important that we give something back to the community,” Mr Callaghan said.
“Football clubs are an integral part of the community and this is just a token of our appreciation to all of those who are working on the frontline fighting the Covid-19 virus.”
Mr Hunter said: “Bonagee United has always been proud of our community links and club members wanted to show our support for them as they have to us.”
“The club would like to express our thanks and best wishes to all of those who are working in frontline services at the moment.”
The items were purchased from local businessman John Watson of Watson Hire, who said: “Bonagee came on board with a substantial donation of money to help purchase a large quantity of dust make and hand sanitiser.
