Gareth Bale has donated more than half a million euros to University Hospital Wales in the fight against coronavirus. The Real Madrid attacker has a strong link with the hospital and wanted to give back during the pandemic. He is also set to donate another €500,000 to the Madrid health service according to The Guardian.
Len Richards, the executive director of the institution, thanked the couple for their generous support. “It’s so heartening to hear they have chosen to give something back to their local hospital to say thank you for the services both them, their family and friends have received and to recognise all the hard work the staff and all at our hospitals are doing at this very difficult time," he said. “Gestures like this are testament to the fantastic work that our clinical and support colleagues carry out every day.”
