27 Dec SUPPORT FANS FOR FOODBANKS VS BLACKBURN
The Town Foundation asks fans to continue their support for the Fans for Foodbanks initiative with a donation ahead of the Blackburn Rovers game.
Supporters are asked to keep up their fantastic support for the initiative by bringing tinned vegetables, dry goods such as pasta and, if possible, some festive favourites.
If youâ€™re attending Sundayâ€™s match against Blackburn Rovers, then look out for the branded bins based at the John Smithâ€™s Stadium. There will be two by the playersâ€™ entrance of the Core Stand and KAL Leisure Centre. Additionally, new branded bins can be found within the Terriers Store, at the home turnstile of the Abzorb South Stand and at the entrance of the hospitality area of the Stadium.
All the donations from the Blackburn Rovers match will directly benefit the Welcome Centre in Huddersfield and Batley Foodbank.
Donations at this time of year are even more important as the shelves become emptier! So, make sure you look out for the bins, which will be out from 1pm.
The Town Foundation has also produced its handy Fans for Foodbanks cards to be distributed at home fixtures. These detail the list of donations accepted by the foodbanks, which include:
â€“ Tinned vegetables
â€“ Breakfast cereal
â€“ Tinned meat
â€“ Tinned fish
â€“ Cooking sauces
â€“ Long-life milk
â€“ Sanitary products
â€“ Cleaning products
Town Foundation CEO, Siobhan Atkinson commented:
â€œWinter months can be the busiest time of year for our local foodbanks in Huddersfield and Batley due to increased heating costs and the demands of family life.
â€œAs such, we are asking our fans to rally together, once again, to make this winter a special one for those in need of some extra support.â€
