The Town Foundation, in partnership with the HTSA, has asked supporters to back the ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative against at the match against Everton.

Supporters are invited to make a difference by bringing long-shelf items to the game against the Toffees.

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

The donations from the game against the Toffees will benefit the Batley Foodbank.

They will appreciate any donation, but currently has shortages in:
- Toothpaste
- Meat paste
- Fish paste
- Coffee/Tea
- Evaporated/Condensed milk
- Toiletries
- Sugar
- Tinned fish
- Tinned meat meals
- Treats for children

The branded bins will be placed around the Stadium from 5.45pm 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 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 Head of Trust Fund, 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 Tuesday night.”
