Successful ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative continues for the Crystal Palace game
- ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ bins around the John Smith’s Stadium and PPG Canalside
- Town Foundation and HTSA team up for the successful initiative
- Supporters asked to donate canned food and cereals
The generosity of Huddersfield Town fans has continued to make a huge difference in the community and supporters are urged to back the ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative, once again, against Crystal Palace.
The campaign, which was launched at the end of the 2017/18 Premier League season by the Town Foundation and the HTSA, has been supported incredibly and has also be recognised by members of David Wagner’s First Team squad.
Both the Welcome Centre and the Batley Foodbank have benefitted massively from the campaign, with the Welcome Centre increasing its amount of food parcels and the Batley Foodbank stocking up its shelves more efficiently.
Once again, supporters are being asked to make a difference and to help benefit the Welcome Centre at this weekend’s game against Crystal Palace.
Supporters are invited to bring donations of canned food and cereals to the match and deposit them in one of the branded bins located around the John Smith’s Stadium.
The Welcome Centre will welcome any donation, but currently has shortages in:
- Tinned fish
- Tinned meat meals (e.g. Chicken Curry, Chilli, Meatballs)
- Meat paste
- Fish paste
The branded bins will be in situ from 1.30pm up until kick-off and supporters 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’s also one located at the PPG Canalside for the Perrys Fanzone!
Over 2,000 donations were made by Huddersfield Town supporters last season backed by HTSA’s ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ campaign last season.
The Town Foundation’s Operations and Events Manager, Julie Sheffield commented:
“Everyone has been able to see the difference that the ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative is making to both the Welcome Centre and the Batley Foodbank.
“The support throughout the season has been absolutely incredible and I have no doubt that it’ll continue.
“We are really happy to work with the HTSA on this and I’d encourage all supporters to back the initiative and make their donations at the game on Saturday.”
