This coming Saturday will see another collection of donations to the NUFC Fans Foodbank. The collection will take place before the Fulham game and commence from 1pm to KO.

The collection point will be on Strawberry Place, opposite NINE Bar and behind the Gallowgate End.

There are hundreds if not thousands of people within our communities dependent upon Foodbanks and Newcastle United supporters should take great pride in the donations made so far but it needs to continue. Tonnes of food and other goods have been donated and made a great impact upon those receiving food-parcels. It is critical donations not only continue but hopefully increase.

The Foodbank collection is coordinated by the Newcastle West Foodbank which is the largest in the UK and supplies food parcels to over 1000 people each week including disabled people and children.

In our communities, in one of the richest economies in the world, in 2017.

The items we have been advised are in current short supply are:

breakfast cereal,

tinned meat/fish,

pasta/cooking sauces

and tinned tomatoes.

That list is not exhaustive but please give what you can.

Thank you.
