CHARITY: Help support our Christmas foodbank and shelter collection

Christmas isn’t an easy time for everyone.

That’s why we’re supporting Sunderland & County Durham Foodbank this festive season.

At our upcoming home game against Lewes on Sunday, December 8, we’ll be holding a collection of essential items ahead of the winter months.

Our first-team players and staff will all be donating – and we’re encouraging supporters to do the same.

We’ll have a drop-off point located near the turnstile at New Ferens Park for supporters to drop-off items to help the less fortunate this Christmas.

The club will then do the rest, and ensure the donations reach those in need.

Recommended items to donate include:

  • Fruit juice (long life)
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Tinned fish
  • Instant mash
  • Milk (UHT)
  • Small jars of coffee
  • Tinned fruit
  • Instant custard
  • Rice pudding
  • Jam
  • Toilet rolls
  • Toiletries
  • Tins of beans
  • Spaghetti and pasta
  • Pasta sauces
  • Flavoured rice
  • Biscuits

And to help make Christmas extra special, Sunderland & County Durham Foodbank are requesting donations of the following items:

  • Tinned ham
  • Christmas pudding
  • Christmas cake/yule log
  • Box of biscuits
  • Children’s selection box
  • Box of chocolates
  • Large bar of chocolate
  • Christmas crackers

It is kindly requested that no fresh items are donated.

We hope our supporters embrace this chance to help those less fortunate – as we aim to ensure nobody goes without the essentials this Christmas.
