Lewes Football Club is asking fans to bring along food items to donate to local food banks to our match against Bognor Regis on Boxing Day.
It’s estimated approximately 14.3 million people in the UK currently live in poverty and nearly a quarter of all children living in Lewes are currently in poverty.
Food Bank use is wide-ranging and includes those on low income, victims of domestic abuse, lone parents, young carers and those unable to work because of physical or mental disability.
The Club would be extremely grateful for any donations our fans are able to support its local community.
In particular, the food banks would welcome donations by supporters of the following items:
Tinned veg – potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans, etc
Baked beans, tinned spaghetti
Tinned meat – meatballs, curry, chilli con carne, corned beef etc
Tinned fish – tuna, salmon, mackerel etc
Long life milk
Cereal bars/fruit bars
Tinned fruit, custard, rice pudding
Any fans not able to make the game but wishing to donate can drop any of the above items into the Rook Inn in the days leading up to and after the game.
We hope that as many supporters as possible are able to contribute to such a worthwhile cause.
