Town supporters urged to back the Fans for Foodbanks initiative against Southampton

- ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ donation bins at the John Smith’s Stadium and PPG Canalside
- Town Foundation and HTSA team up for successful season-long initiative
- Supporters can make a real difference in the community this Christmas

The Town Foundation, in partnership with the HTSA, urges supporters to back the ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative against Southampton to help make a real difference this Christmas.

The ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative has been a great success since its launch and during the 2017/18 campaign and could make an even bigger impact during the festive period.

Supporters are therefore, once again, invited to make a difference this Christmas by bringing long-shelf items to the game against Southampton on Saturday 22 December 2018.

To donate, fans are asked to place the provisions in the branded bins located around the John Smith’s Stadium and PPG Canalside.

The Welcome Centre will appreciate any donation, but currently has shortages in:

- Toothpaste
- Meat paste
- Fish paste
- Coffee
- Long life milk
- Shampoo
- Sugar
- Tinned fish
- Tinned meat meals
- Stock cubes

The branded bins will be placed around the Stadium from 1pm up until kick-off and fans are asked to bring along any long shelf life food they wish to donate – unfortunately we cannot accept fresh foods.

There are six Foodbanks located around the John Smith’s Stadium for this weekend’s game:

- Three at the South End of the Revell Ward Stand
- Two near the Gym Entrance by the Fantastic Media turnstiles
- One by the South Stand home turnstiles
- There is also a bin at the Perrys Fanzone at PPG Canalside

The Town Foundation’s Head of Operations and Events, Julie Sheffield, commented:

“The support we’ve received throughout the season has been overwhelming, but the Christmas period is even more important for us.

“If you have anything that you are willing to donate, then please bring it along to the Southampton game and pop it in one of the donation bins.

“We are making a real impact in the community and we hope that with our help everyone can enjoy the festivities as much as possible.”
