    Plymouth Arena Community Events (PACE) have dedicated their new 500 seat stand to the NHS.

    They have branded it with the logo alongside two hearts and have painted it in the club colours of Plymouth Gladiators Speedway, who the arena is home to.

    It is to say thank you to all NHS and Care Staff locally and nationally, not only during the coronavirus pandemic, but also over the past 72 years.

    Commercial Director Ian Jordan explained the idea behind it:

    “Managing Director and Promoter Mark Phillips set out the new seats in an NHS logo and it just looked and felt right that we should go down this route as our thank you to the NHS and associated frontline Services. We will brand it for the NHS for the remainder of 2020.

    "The recent Covid19 pandemic has seen the NHS deliver not only world class healthcare and support, but numerous examples of unbelievable public service.

    "At a time of crisis, everyone has realised, it is iconic, world leading and a national treasure.

    "We are delighted to acknowledge the gratitude of the people of Plymouth and the wider area, and those in our Sport to the NHS for all they have done, and do, day after day, that touches the lives of everyone.

    "The most tangible benefit will be for us to allow the opportunity of NHS Staff and front line colleagues in the Care Sector to have a free night out at Plymouth Speedway in 2020 and 2021."
