Food bank collection at this Saturday’s game

Lewes Football Club is asking fans to bring along food items to donate to local food banks at this Saturday’s’s game against Godalming Town.

This time of year is critical for people most in need and the Club would be extremely grateful for any donations our fans are able to make to benefit its local community.

In particular, the food banks would welcome donations by supporters of the following non-perishable items:

–          Dry Pasta

–          Rice

–          Tins of meat, vegetables, soup

–          Tea, Coffee, Sugar

–          Toiletries (shower gel, soap, shampoo)

There will be collection points at the turnstiles for fans to make donations.

Any fans not able to make the game but wishing to make a donation can drop any of the above items into the club office in the days leading up to the game.

Local campaigner and Lewes resident, Emily Clarke is also launching the #241forFoodBanks campaign at the match to raise awareness of food poverty and boost vital donations of food by encouraging customers to donate the freebie from the 241 supermarket offer to their local food bank, Fareshare or Trussell Trust collection point.

Following the launch at the game, 241forfoodbanks.com a website with downloadable campaign tools including leaflets, signage and publicity ideas, will be available to enable local campaigners and food banks nationwide to drive the campaign in their local area.

We hope that as many supporters as possible are able to contribute to such a worthwhile cause.
