Hawthorn have honoured the work of those on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic in the second annual Emergency Services Match in Round 17.
In a year like no other, the 2020 match was particularly pertinent to the club’s partner Emergency Services organisations in Victoria. The services have been considerably tested, first in response to the devastating bushfires at the beginning of the year and since then as they work on the frontline response to the pandemic.
Each year, the club's Emergency Service Match is an opportunity to thank these dedicated people while also raising awareness of the impact this work can have on the mental health and wellbeing of all of the people working tirelessly in these fields.
