The midfielder, alongside former footballer Dexter Blackstock, has been raising money to buy PPE, which the pair are delivering to key workers across Nottingham and Derby.

Johnson, who now plays for Blackburn Rovers, told the club’s website: “We spoke about it and we agreed that instead of donating something to one of these big charities, why don’t we open up our own thing and help out locally - the local care homes, hospices and places around here.”
