Georgia speaks to creator of group that brings West Ham fans together

Paul Golder writes for the Brentwood Gazette

One positive thing that has been created from our ongoing pandemic chaos is the number of self-help groups which allow people to be better informed and get access to resources they may have not otherwise known about.

On her regular Drive show Georgia Frampton spoke to Neil Taylor, co-creator of the fast-growing Facebook group “Hammers for Work and Support”.

The group now has over 9,000 members, and has brought West Ham fans together over lockdown to support each other in a time that has been incredibly financially difficult for many.

Whether you’re looking for work or workers, if you’re a West Ham fan, you can use this amazing network to help you along your way. The community have also come together to contribute to many charitable causes, and to help young people kick start their careers.

You can hear Neil talking all about the group on phoenixfm.com – search “Hammers for work and support” on Facebook to find the group.

And I am sure that there are many other similar groups if you don’t support West Ham – but this is a great idea as it gives an incentive for people to get information they would not have otherwise come across. From our own experiences in running radio shows about football I know that many people use the internet just to talk about their favourite football team and nothing else!

Sadly that was the full-time whistle for Georgia’s Drive Time show – as she’s now gained a full time job with a podcasting company! Georgia will be moving her show to Saturday mornings – and our lunchtime presenter Stewart Pink has now taken over the reins.
