This act of kindness comes on the back of Rose’s anonymous £19,000 donation to North Middlesex University hospital last week, where he also sent hundreds of Domino’s pizzas to frontline staff a few days later.
His latest sum of money will be split between SafeLives and Chayn, who operate similarly to the UK’s biggest domestic abuse charity Refuge, which reported a 120 percent increase in calls last week.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Rose said:
“We’re all keen to make something happen.
“I can only speak for myself but I would have no problems whatsoever contributing any of my wages to people who are fighting this on the front line and to people who have been affected by what’s happening at the minute.”
Premier League footballers have been criticised by the likes of cabinet minister Matt Hancock, for not doing more to support others during this crisis.
The hostilities should have been directed towards club owners – not players – but this has eventually led to a good cause, with players from across the top flight setting up the #PlayersTogether fund.
Rose’s latest contribution, alongside the #PlayersTogether movement shows that Premier League footballers should not always be stereotyped as the greedy, fame hungry monsters that they are often portrayed out to be.
