Hibs and Kilmarnock have shown true community spirit in the wake of the SPFL’s indefinite suspension.

The league season has been left in limbo after it was put on hold as the world fights the Covid-19 pandemic. It has led to widespread cancelations of sporting events globally and the SPFL is no different.

It meant that Hibs’ Easter Road clash with St Johnstone and Kilmarnock’s visit of St Mirren were canned. With groceries and food all stocked up ahead of another matchday, it looked set to go to waste.

But the Hibees and Killie have brought some positive news in the midst of worrying times. Hibs have given all their perishable items, fruit and veg and dairy products to local charities and community groups in order to help the vulnerable in our society.

Kilmarnock meanwhile have handed out 200 Empire biscuits to local group East Ayrshire Churches Homelessness Action.

Whilst it may be a drop in the ocean for clubs to do things like this, it provides much-needed boosts for those who’ll benefit from it, especially in such worrying times.
