City hoping to score plenty of donations for Foodbank

Rob George 26th Dec, 2017

WORCESTER City will be looking to hit the back of the net on and off the pitch for their Boxing Day clash with Bromsgrove Sporting.

City and Sporting fans are being encouraged to bring items to donate to Worcester’s Foodbank at a dedicated drop off point.

Should it prove popular, the idea will be replicated for further games.

Worcester FoodBank provides three-day emergency food parcels to those most in need. In the last year it has provided 5,308 three-day food parcels, an increase of 35 per cent compared to the year before.

Fans will also be able tuck into mince pies, of which a portion of sales will go to St Paul’s Hostel.

Donation buckets for St Paul’s will also be available on the day, and members of staff, volunteers and clients from St Paul’s will be in attendance as guests of the club.

St Paul’s has been a part of Worcester for 40 years, acting as a safety net for those who have hit hard times.

The hostel has 46 beds, and offers a safe place with help in building psychological safety, nurture and strengthen appropriate relationships and connect people to the friendships, help and support they need to live an inter-dependent life.
